Episode 058: Forming Healthy Relationships
When looking for love, are you setting yourself up for failure? You’ve heard the saying, finding your “other half” completes you. Suggesting that if you’re single, there’s something wrong with you. What if you find someone you like? In today’s hook-up culture, there’s a lot of pressure to sleep with someone and if you like that person, it can ruin your chances of creating a relationship with them. How many girls have hooked up with a guy only to be disappointed when he doesn’t text or call.
Exploring sexuality in our modern day and age is challenging in all sorts of new ways. In this interesting conversation, my guest, Dr. Nancy Lee shares how to navigate the challenges of dating, how to lay the foundation for a healthy relationship, how to recognize when you are being disrespected and what to do about it, and how parents can help their teens avoid some of the bad habits we tend to pick up around dating, relationships and sex when we first start exploring our sexuality.
