So....You Just Found Out Your Teen Is Having Sex

As parents, sometimes we stumble upon things in our teens' rooms that we really wish we hadn't seen. Well, this week, Ginni and Jo hear from a mum who found a box of condoms in her daughter's room and wants to initiate…THE SEX TALK!

Plus, Jo opens up about her experiences as a "low talker" and offers valuable advice to a worried parent who believes their daughter’s quietness is a toxic trait.
