All too many people postpone "The Talk" with their parents, fearing the discussion might lead to emotional distress for everyone involved. But as actress Monica Potter (Parenthood) explains, having "The Talk" can actually be a reassuring and even life-affirming experience.
As a self-described "type-A personality," Monica likes to plan things down to the very last detail. But you can't always prepare for the curveballs that life may throw at you. Monica poignantly reflects upon the loss of her own father which propelled her into having "The Talk" in her own family and stresses the importance of being as prepared as possible.
