What happens is that there are three reasons parents are afraid to bring up this subject. One is that they don’t know what to say. Second, they’re afraid that their own feelings and their own background they may be ashamed and embarrassed about. Third, they’re afraid if they talk to their kids about it they’re going to go out and do it, but research shows that it’s not true, it’s the opposite.” Watch the segment below.
