I think handling the questions today is easier than it used to be. It would be rare in this age of the Internet to encounter a teen who didn’t already know the basic facts.

It’s just a matter of respecting them enough to be honest without giving them so much information that they’re overwhelmed.

Of course Don is an exceptional man who raised an exceptional young son.

But I would say that, given my biased point of view. ;-)
