—Health and sexuality experts Logan Levkoff, PhD and Jennifer Wider, MD
In Got Teens?, the Doctor Moms combine their medical and psychological knowledge with their own personal experiences to address the most cringeworthy and difficult questions that kids often ask their parents. From “How old were you when you first had sex?” to “What’s wrong with sharing my password with a friend I trust?” and beyond, Levkoff and Wider will help you decode your teens’ questions to figure out what they really want to know. Topics include body development, emotional changes, bullying, social media, substance abuse, and more—giving parents the confidence to tackle these subjects with authority and compassion.
Tune in and listen to Jennifer and Janet tackle topics around gender-orientation, sexuality regarding young children and the affects of social media.
