Suzanne commented on "Home's Cool!" Podcast

Thank, you, Isaac!
I thought the "10 Tips for Facing Quarantine" was really helpful, too.
Actually, we haven't done our first podcast yet, it's still in the planning stages.
I'll let you know how it goes,

Suzanne commented on Teen STAR fertility literacy curriculum

Thank you for your interest, Isaac!
You are so right about emotional intelligence, especially as it relates to the experience of fertility which is influenced by fluctuating hormones (in women)...along with those fluctuating moods! Teen STAR has been warmly received in over 30 countries worldwide, but not as much here in the U.S. You ask a good question why it has not been piloted here, and in fact it has. The good news is we are in the process of SCALING it here, and that's why we joined the Challenge! To answer you, I believe it is part of the fabric of our society here in the U.S. to be less comfortable discussing these matters with our children than are our European, African and Asian counterparts. But those days are coming to a close, as teens demand truthful information and unashamed guidance from their elders on fertility. The internet has opened us up to the rest of the world's attitudes towards this in ways we could not have imagined until now! Thank you again Isaac; keep your eyes on Teen STAR! http://www.teenstar.org/page.asp?DH=6
I would be happy to answer any further questions in detail, and would love to hear your thoughts.
