The Birds and the Bees: Talking to Young Teens About Sex
How did you learn about sex? My husband tells about coming home from school one day to find a book about "reproduction" (not sex) on his bed. Nothing was ever said about it. I, on the other hand, am part of a whole generation of girls who learned about menstruation and the mechanics of making and having babies from a movie shown after school "for girls only." Little was said at my house beyond some hemming and hawing about whether I should go to the film. Friends of mine learned what little they knew from friends, some of whom had more enlightened parents, but most of whom had equally ignorant friends. Is it any wonder that most of us were more than a little confused?

DeMaso and Joseph Gonzalez-Heydrich, is an online collection of stories from children, parents, siblings and health care providers on what it is like to live with specific emotional and physical illnesses. With pictures, narratives, and short movies, the Journal is an evolving, online community.
Designed for individuals looking for insights from other people who have been in situations similar to their own, the Experience Journal serves patients and families. "In the rush to care for the needs of ill youngsters, the impact of their conditions on their families, and even their caregivers, is often forgotten." says Dr. DeMaso. "Given the millions of children facing chronic illness, promoting successful coping is of vital public health importance." The Experience Journal contains five forums on childhood depression, pediatric heart disease, organ transplantation, inflammatory bowel disease, and pediatric obesity. Journals on ADHD, asthma, deafness and hearing loss, and bereavement are under development.
