Teenage Boys Need to Hear From Their Parents About Sex and Relationships

Teenage Boys Need to Hear From Their Parents About Sex and Relationships

Our guest-host, CNN’s Alisyn Camerota, is joined by her twin 16-year old daughters and Dr. Lea Lis, The Shameless Psychiatrist, for part two of a revealing conversation about what dating and romance is really like for teenagers today. 

Building on the conversation from our previous episode, Dr. Lis reminds us that boys shouldn’t be left out of this conversation. “I see so many of them are just lost,” she says. “They don’t connect. They can’t form bonds. Moms and dads don’t say anything. They’ll talk to the girls. And they don’t say anything to boys,” Dr. Lis can be heard saying in today’s episode. 

Dr. Lis shares some practical advice about how to talk to boys about sex, and offers detailed suggestions for “coming of age rituals” to help young men and women navigate their passage into adulthood. 

You’ll also hear Dr. Lis’ best tips for teenagers on how to navigate relationships and sex. 

Parents need to be having these conversations with their kids and this episode will give you the skills and tools to start the dialogue. 

Dr. Lis book, No Shame, Real Talk with Your Kids About Sex, Self-Confidence, and Health Relationships is available HERE

Talking to Your Teenagers About Sex and Dating

Talking to Your Teenagers About Sex and Dating

Our guest-host, CNN’s Alisyn Camerota, is joined by her twin 16-year old daughters on the podcast for a revealing conversation about what dating and romance is really like for teenagers today. They are joined by Dr. Lea Lis, The Shameless Psychiatrist, for a candid conversation about the rise of the hook-up culture, why your first sexual experience should be special, and how parents from the 80’s need to back-off a bit and not force their own teenage experience on their kids. 

Dr. Lis shares some insights about how the pandemic has affected relationships, how to talk to teen girls about sex and prioritizing their own pleasure, as well as the shame that many feel if they’re “not being a nice girl” and how to counter it. Dr. Lis recommends teens “set expectations up front” before a situation arises.
