New York Times: Quote on Normalizing the Discussion of Girls' Sexual Health
I was quoted in Melinda Wenner Moyer's article for The New York Times exploring the ways in which Pixar's 'Turning Red' offers wonderful conversation starters on girls' sexuality and health. Periods are normal. Crushes are normal. Emotions are normal.
As we discuss in the piece, it's never too early to discuss these issues with kids, to foster open communication and comprehensive education.
