Teaching your kids about sex is never easy. What do they need to know, when? How do you impart your values to them? What sexual activities are kids engaging in now and how early? How should you talk about sex with a child who has been a victim of sexual abuse? What do they need to know before school starts? Experts join us to answer your questions. Also, what did your parents teach you? Share your good and bad stories of having "the talk." Call 1.800.289.5869 or email
