A personal encounter with the Author~Great Book! May 24, 2006
This book has incredible research and a very up to date commentary for what Kids do want to know. I have watched 4 kids as a regular Nani and have enjoyed the answers in this book as a great companion. I also had the pleasure of meeting the Author and having her sign a book, I must say that she has a personal character that emits true dedication to her family, kids and work. She is truly gifted in her personable persona and I was very impressed with her genuine countenance. I completely disagree with the Hoddie H review, because this book holds a plethora of new research and an Author of stellar personality!
Fantastic book! Feb 11, 2006
I bought this book after I had my 3rd child and my 7 year old was asking questions about how the baby got in my tummy and how the baby came out. This book was wonderful in helping me to know how to answer those questions to my 7 year old. This book has great ideas and advice on how to speak with your children about everything to do with sex. I love this book! It tells you how to talk with your kids ranging in age from preschool to adulthood! It's the best book I've found out there on answering kids questions about sex.
Everything I've Heard Before... Feb 6, 2006
This book was good, but I have to say it wasn't anything I haven't read before. As a parent, the way I see it is that if you have morals, and are a good example to your children then it should be that difficult to reflect onto them the same values. If your relationship with your kids is lacking, then nothing you can say on these topics can help. First, you have to build a loving, respectful relationship with your child, and to be a great role model. If you already are in a good relationship, then I don't see a need for this book. You can pull up info on STDs and statistics on millions of websites. So, while this book is an educating read for a parent who's unable to do these simple sex-explaining tasks on their own, I feel like this isn't necessarily the place to start. I guess what I'm saying is, those who could use this book won't be able to gain anything from it WITH their child because they're already lacking and need to repair other areas first.
I've also met the author, who has young children and I doubt has tackled these issues with her own kids yet. Although she seems very self-absorbed with herself, it causes me to wonder about the motives of writing such a book.
But if you're lost with your kids and don't know where to start, give it a chance. But honestly, I think your money would be better invested in counseling with your child. Books aren't the answer. Spending time with your child is.
Great Job! Dec 1, 2005
The book was very educational. I found the book to be reader friednly. As a mother to a pre-pubertal son, these issues are sensitive. This book taught me to let the child ask questions then address issues (being careful not to give to much information). Thanks for such an informative book!
Where was this book 15yrs ago? Nov 2, 2005
My children are in their late teens and oh how I wish I had access to this book 15 years ago! This is not your typical "here is my opinion and here's a story" type book. When I saw that 8 doctors contributed to it, I knew I could trust the medical accuracy. My teenagers are now going hear current stats, facts and my values from me, but I will now have the authority of their pediatrician. I would highly recommend this for any parent looking for ways to communicate the medical risks of premarital sex with their children.
