Reviews - What do customers think about Before I Was Born (Gods Design For Sex 2)(Revised)?
Very good (and frank!) book for discussing sex with your child! Apr 18, 2008
We have a 10 year old son. We are planning to start with book 2 and go from there. This series is definately frank but right on target. I want my child to hear all this from me and not the playground. It is nice to have the words already phrased so you can read it together. Some of the subject matter may be too much for your child, but you can decide what parts you can discuss now and hold the rest for when the topics come up.
tasteful and factual Dec 16, 2007
This is the book I've been trying to find. It presents the material in an age-appropriate manner, and the matter of fact delivery removes the stigma which we parents can unconsciously pass on to our kids when discussing sex. It is not graphic and it does not go into more detail than is necessary for a 7 year old child.
Great introduction Oct 22, 2007
I decided that I wanted to be the first one to talk to my son about sex, and God's design for sex. I picked up this book based on the reviews, and I was not disappointed. The pictures were obvious, but not graphic and the explanations were complete, but not overdone. My son was interested and not at all uncomfortable when we read the book. I highly recommend it.
Just right for my 8 year old daughter Sep 8, 2007
I have been so nervous about talking about this stuff with my daughter. But this book made it so easy! We spent a few minutes reading and stopped frequently when she had questions. Then, it sparked an awesome conversation after we were finished. This book is just the right amount of information at the right time. It has illustrations that are very tasteful and didn't make either of us squirm. (Although she did giggle a bit at the discussion of how a boy grows :-) Like other reviewers, I'm not sure my 5 year old is ready to hear this, but I'm very glad I have the book now so I can pull it out when she does start asking questions. I think it's perfect for the 7-8 year old, boy or girl (it covers both equally).
Tells it Like it is ... in a Good Way. Jul 10, 2007
Some reviews think this book is too graphic. If my children lived in a vacuum I'd tend to agree but, alas they do not. I want them to hear it from me and not some misinformed youth who doesn't have their facts straight as happens with so many children. I was shocked when I learned about it from a friend ... at a much younger age than my parents ever knew or even suspected. If you think you're 6+ year old isn't hearing things you most likely need another think.
Kids at this age (at least my son) are so into animals and biology and nature that they are just sponges. They accept facts at face value without adding all the "dirtiness" associated with sex in our culture. Regarding the intercourse description he just looked at me with a look that said, "are you for real?" I said I was and he kind of went, "oh, okay." It was just another fact of nature to him.
