Emotional Wellness: A Path to Peace



I embarrassed myself.  Again.  This time I told my Introduction to Psychology/Psychology 101 students that we only dream in REM (rapid eye movement) sleep.  It turns out that we do occasionally dream in N-REM (non-rapid eye movement) sleep.  To make it worse, a colleague noticed my mistake!

Discussing Sex with Your Children

I was leading a discussion in myMarriage, Family and Intimate Relationshipscourse the other day on the hows and the whys of parents discussing sex with their children.  I was dismayed when a man who has an eleven year old daughter said that it's not necessary for parents to discuss sex with their children, because they'll learn everything that they need to know in school.  I'd like to make a case for why it's important for parents to have these discussions with their kids.
