When I'm feeling feisty, I say "Come on, people, we don't want the village raisin' idiots!" When I'm reflecting professionally, I encourage families to invest in their kids, talking early and often about feelings and sexuality, building consent, communication skills, and healthy relationships. Our society's future mental health depends on it.
