Raising children in today’s always “plugged-in” digital age can be overwhelming for many parents. Children today experience near constant exposure to online activities, making it difficult for parents to keep up with the content their children are exposed to, some of which they may not be prepared to handle. Talking to their children about sex and sexuality can be extremely difficult for parents, even more so when the digital world has created easier access to sexual content. In Dr. Jennifer Week’s first prevention book, parents will learn how their teens are interacting online and how exposure to online sexuality can affect them. Parents will also learn how their own issues with sex and sexuality influence how they either do or do not talk to their children about sex. Finally, this book provides parents with practical tips on how to talk to their children about digital sexuality as well as how to ascertain if their child has a problem with pornography or other online sexual behaviors.
