The allegations of sexual assault against now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh shined a painfully glaring light on the importance of discussing harassment and abuse with kids. In Episode 137 of Edit Your Life, we rebroadcast Christine’s interview with Nora Gelperin, Director of Sexuality Education and Training at Advocates for Youth. She shares down-to-earth advice about how to talk to kids about sexual abuse: what it is, how to recognize it, and how to protect themselves. Christine and Nora also discuss how to advocate for a strong sex ed program at your child’s school, and Nora recommends her favorite sex ed resources.
