The new normal family dynamic is evolving and co-parenting plays a big role in many of these new situations. In today's episode, Dr. Lis tells us how to co-parent better and how to reduce the shame around sexuality for ourselves in our kids.

In this episode, we discuss relationship advice topics that include:

  • How to co-parent more effectively
  • Dating new people when you have kids
  • How to talk about sexuality with your kids starting at a young age
  • Cognitive re-framing exercises when thinking about your own sexual story
  • And much more!

Dr. Lea Lis, M.D. “The Shameless Psychiatrist," is on a mission to help children and parents live without shame about their sexuality. Dr. Lis is a double board-certified adult and child psychiatrist who has worked with non-traditional family arrangements throughout her career and considers these families “the new normal.” Widespread social changes, along with a sex-saturated media and ongoing debates about the meaning of gender and sexuality, generate new challenges for parents of all kinds. Dr. Lis helps parents, children, and adolescents face these challenges and develop healthy, sex-positive attitudes and practices. During her training and residency at St. Vincent’s Hospital in New York and New York University, as well as in her private psychiatric practice, Dr. Lis has developed expertise in working with modern families of all types.
