  • 37. Puberty Gets BANNED!

    28:33
    Cara is now on the banned booklist – that’s a new milestone! Cara is the doctor behind The Care and Keeping of You, a 25-year old beloved book about body changes that was recently banned from the children’s section at the Huntington Beach Library. Which means it’s harder for kids to find good body information but, meanwhile, they’re one click away from porn with no safeguards put in place. We talk about all the reasons books like these are critical to help keep kids healthy and safe, and why limiting kids’ access to porn is where energy should be spent instead.Show Notes:Go to FACTORMEALS.COM/puberty50 and use code puberty50 to get 50% offGet 25% off your first order of Phyla, when you visit PhylaBiotics.com and use the code PUBERTY at checkout!Order our book This Is So AwkwardCheck out all of our speaking and consulting work at www.Orderofmagnitude.co and all our super comfy products at www.myOOMLA.comTo bring us to your school or community email communications@orderofmagnitude.coTo submit listener questions email thepubertypodcast@gmail.comWatch the full episode on Youtube!Produced by Peoples MediaTranscript
