WABI interviews Caron about latest book on forming families

WABI (Channel 5) interviewed Sandra Caron, a University of Maine professor of family relations and human sexuality, about her latest book, “Birds and Bees and More: How Babies are Made and Families Form.” The book aims to help parents and teachers start a conversation about where babies come from, according to the report. “We all live in a culture that is sex-saturated but sex silent,” Caron said. “I wanted to write something that brought everything together and sort of looked at the diversity of ways that babies are made and families form. I’m not sure people are aware, there are nearly 5 million babies that have been born through assisted reproductive technologies, for example. So it’s time we talk about that or include that in our discussion.”
