These Doctors Will Teach You How To Deal With Your Teen And The Dreaded Sex Talk

By  | 

If you had to pick three rules that are nonnegotiable when it comes to teenagers, what would they be? 

Jena:

1- For tweens/younger teens: I need your password for all social media apps and if used inappropriately, they are confiscated immediately

2-Never, ever do anything you feel uncomfortable with for any reason, trust your gut.

3– I will pick you up no questions asked anytime, anywhere.

Logan:

1) Consent is nonnegotiable — whether it is kissing or touching or anything explicitly sexual (or even if it is posting a photo of a friend on Facebook), you must have agreement, always.

2) Be an upstander, not a bystander. Stand up for what is right; and of course, know when to jump in and when to get help.

3) Every individual has the right to make their own independent decisions without our judgment. There is no double standard.
