Speaking in Halifax, Nova Scotia (Canada) tonight for Dalhousie University was an unique opportunity this evening. Half of the audience was parents and their teenagers – with the remaining half being college/university students.

I combined the “Can I Kiss You?” program with the “HELP! My Teen Is Dating. Real Solutions to Tough Conversations” presentation.

Everyone asked great questions and dived deeply into the discussion. You could tell this group of student LEADERS was going to help bring a large audience out to the evening “Can I Kiss You?” show.
