Talk to me first

There's a reason that it's known as THE TALK. It's perhaps one of the most important conversations a parent can have with a child. It's also one of the most daunting. The sex talk strikes a deep fear in many moms and dads, but it doesn't have to be that way. That's what Deborah Roffman argues in her new called "Talk to Me First: Everything You Need to Know to Become Your Kids' "Go-To" Person about Sex."

In our latest installment of our Parenting On The Edge series, Alex Cohen talks to Roffman about why so many parents are afraid to talk to their kids about sex. They also talk about when the most appropriate time to talk to your child about sex is, and why and how you'd want to broach the topic with them in the first place.
