Braxton caught up with a human sexuality researcher, Shaun Miller, to discuss the methods parents can use to help develop sexual resiliency. Braxton and Shaun explore the complexities of developing traits such as resiliency and courage in children, let alone in a sexual context. Braxton divulges his embarrassing prom night "at the door" experience. They present methods to teach personal values to your children and how to use real-life experiences to support your teens. Shaun discusses how "showing up" as a parent and choosing to support your child in decision making and autonomy help develop resiliency. Two research articles were brought to the table to help identify how schools are supporting resiliency development. Ultimately they discover the keys to failure, value development, and allowing for growth.
