From Birth to Puberty - Helping your child develop a healthy sexuality
From Birth to Puberty shows how to treat children's sexual development as a positive, natural part of their lives.
Every parent wants their child to grow up healthy, to have committed, loving relationships and lasting friendships. Central to all this is the development of a healthy sexuality. But how do you help your child achieve this? From Birth to Puberty shows how to treat children's sexual development as a positive, natural part of their lives. It explains: the first 12 years of children's sexual development, the difference between child and adult sexuality, how to manage specific sexuality issues with your child, how you develop open, honest communication about sex with them, sexuality education at school, how children learn family values, how to prepare your child for puberty and future relationships. Say goodbye to 'The Big Talk' about sex with your child at puberty. With these parenting skills you will develop healthy two-way communication about sexuality with them from childhood. By the time they feel sexual attractions as teenagers you will have helped them gain the skills they need to care for themselves. They will make healthy decisions based on a strong set of values. And your relationship with your daughter or son will be enhanced.
