Sex, Our Kids, and Us is the topic at #DadChat this week, Thursday February 2 from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m., PST. A frank discussion will take place with someone who speaks for our kids, Lauri Burns. No one will accuse #DadChat of shying away from the serious, though we are often silly. Last week we had a very serious discussion about The Triple Decker Sandwich Generation, led by @BarryBirkett, and its affects on all three layers of that challenging sandwich – us, our kids, and our seniors.
Lauri Burns is our very special guest and one who KNOWS from her own harsh experience about the sex trade and its impact on our children!
Lauri Burns is a corporate executive at a Fortune 100 company, an inspirational speaker, a mother to over thirty troubled foster children (drugs, prostitution, cutters, eating disorders and behavioral disorders) and the founder of The Teen Project, for homeless youth, which she established in response to her overwhelming feeling that no matter how many teens she fostered, it was never enough. She is a part of Oprah’s Angel Network and has been approached by multiple networks for a feature, movie rights and pilot show. It is her dream that no teen should ever be without a safe home or a family.
Lauri Burns is the author of Punished for Purpose- the biography of her life’s trials, tribulations and amazing triumphs over adversity; 75% of the proceeds of her book go to support The Teen Project. More information about Lauri and her book can we found on these websites: Punished For Purpose and The Teen Project.
