Emily Yoffe reviews Dr. Sinikka Elliott’s new book Not my Kids:What Parents believe about the Sex Lives of their Teenagers in this month’s Slate Magazine.
Dr. Elliott is an Assistant Professor of Sociology at North Carolina State University and a graduate of the UT Austin Sociology program (2008). Elliott compares the discomfort of parents in America as they broach the topic of sex with their teens to the more open approach taken in Holland, leaving the reviewer to wonder if she could imagine her daughter’s boyfriends staying in their home for weekend sleepovers. Provocative questions for both parents and their sexually curious teens.
