My son isn't old enough that I've had to worry about going into a lot of detail about sex, but I have tried to be honest and truthful about things like where babies come from. I was both excited and a little scared about reading this book. I wasn't sure if it would approach things from a point-of-view that I would agree with. I was so pleased to be surprised. This book is amazing! I love how positive this book was. So many times talking about sex becomes a negative thing because we want them so much to understand the importance of chastity. This is not always the best approach though. We need to find a balance so that children and youth understand how important sex is and why we save it for the appropriate time and place.
I love that this book emphasizes the need for communication on this topic starting from a young age. This book helped me see areas I have done well and areas in which I could use some major improvement. There are questions and answers for each age group that have some great help in them. At the end of there book there is some dealing with "special" topics in this area. They were absolutely full of fantastic information and direction. I wish that everyone would read this book. It manages to be very sex positive while using the temple as a guide to show why chastity is so important to us. This is a book I know I'll reference for years to come. With it's beautiful message and positive tone, it takes what could be a touchy subject and makes it approachable for everyone.
Book provided for review.
The author starts with building a foundation and preparing yourself to teach and discuss topics that might be uncomfortable. It's important to come up with a plan, communicate effectively and find ways to repeat information.
There are sections on topics to discuss or consider at each age, beginning when children are young. It starts with curious learners (ages 0-5), then progresses to concrete learners (ages 6-8 and 9-11) and finally conduct learners (ages 12+ and Premarital). Each section has a chapter with questions, answers and ideas. This is a good guide to help answer some of the difficult or uncomfortable questions and then there are ideas for conversation starters. The final section deals with special topics.
The biggest thing I have learned as I've talked with my children is to handle their questions without freaking out. There's a lot out there that they are exposed to and I want to help them understand the importance and sacredness of sex. This book helped me feel more confident in the areas where I feel like I'm on the right path and gave me great suggestions on ways I can improve. I have also treated it as a topic to discuss with my kids as they got older and like the ideas to help build a foundation with younger children so it becomes more natural as they get older.
If you're nervous about "the talk" and want to know how you can start now to help your children understand this topic, this book is a great resource!
I received a copy of this book to review. My opinion is 100% my own.
