Teen Sexual Behavior - Part III

In the final installment of a three-part series, NPR's Brenda Wilson examines sexual behavior in young adolescents today, and the role that parent-child communication can play. Some experts say parents may need to broach the topic of sexuality with their kids much sooner than they might think.

Related book: "Everything You Never Wanted Your Kids to Know About Sex, but Were Afraid They'd Ask: The Secrets to Surviving Your Child's Sexual Development from Birth to the Teens," by Justin Richardson, Mark A. Schuster.
