Patrick Jeffrey Posted over 2 years ago Join TED Speakers John Bohannon and Carl Flink Monday, 12/17 to delve into the super-awkward world of "The Facts of Life"! My parents didn’t really give me a talk. Instead, they gave me a book. My 12 year old self wasn’t interested in reading about my body, but instead I would giggle with my friends as we flipped through the pictures. I think the book was a good way to lead into it though. And if my parents would have talked with me about the book after I had it for a while, it would have been a helpful tool. I'm sure I would have run away from them as well, but kids still hear you when their ears are plugged.
