#181 Empowering Teens with Consent: Interview with Dr. Laura McGuire
This is such an important conversation on how to raise our teens with agency so that they have the skills to set boundaries, and know what they want and know what they don’t want. This conversation about consent explores all the nuances of a true consent. We address what moms can do to reduce the shame factor so our teens will be honest with us.
