Would your teen tell you if they were abused? … Is it possible that they are victims of cyber-bullying and you don’t know it yet? … Now, before you say that your teenager will tell you everything, consider this: how important is it to you that they do the right thing …?
Conversations about sex start with thoughts about sex. …If you think it is dirty – you will tell your teen as much. If you think it is enjoyable and a gift from God (which it is, by the way) – you will tell them it is.
