Synopsis

Talking to Your Kids About Sex From Toddlers to Preteens by Lauri Berkenkamp, Stephen C. Atkins

This commonsense, practical guide to talking to children about sex provides ways to launch conversations following some of the most common kid comments and questions: What's That Thing? I'm Going to Marry Mommy. Sex Is When You Kiss. I Don't Want to Talk About It. From teaching toddlers about body parts to important discussions with adolescents, this resource encourages parents to understand what children of particular ages and developmental levels are ready to know, what they should know, and how to tell them. Real-life questions and answers encourage parents to prepare for their talks and make discussions easier. Moreover, ideas for discussing this sensitive subject with a sense of humor help take away some of the awkwardness--for both children and parents.
