If you've read our latest research report, you know that the focus on "hook-up culture" is obscuring much bigger issues facing young people: forming and maintaining healthy romantic relationships and dealing with widespread misogyny and sexual harassment.
How to have this talk – the talk to promote healthy relationships and prevent misogyny and sexual harassment – is the focus of our new free webinar, co-presented with NBC's Parent Toolkit and Share My Lesson. As part of the webinar, we share tips and other resources to get the the conversation started. Remember, 70% of young people we surveyed reported wishing they had received more information from their parents about some emotional aspect of a romantic relationship; 65% wished that they had received similar guidance in a health or sex education class at school. This is the talk that young people want and need.
