Talking About Sex with Your Teen
Talking to a teen about the birds and the bees is uncomfortable for most parents, to say the least.

But kids are hearing about it every day.

The problem is they often don't get the right message.

Educator and TED speaker, Al Vernacchio, has a fresh approach. His new book, For Goodness Sex, answers all the questions that kids of the digital age (and their parents) have about romantic relations, physical intimacy and gender identification.

Vernacchio joins Dr. Roizen to share how this book can help you have these important conversations with ease.
