Linda and Richard Eyre provide thoughtful, clear, specific guidance on when and, most important, how to help children begin to understand sex, love, and commitment from the most positive viewpoint. Writing from the powerful platform of successful personal experience with their own children, they give a series of proven dialogues — point-by-point discussion outlines — for each stage of a child's development. These dialogues can be tailored to fit children of different ages and each family's particular values and standards — and they also give parents a fresh opportunity to reassess their own beliefs as they communicate them to their children.

Excellent approach to sex-education in our times!

This is the best book I've found to approach this subject. It helps you with what to say, how and when to say it, and helps teach your kids what an 'awesome' thing sex should be. Now talking to my kids about this sacred subject will no longer be something to dread!
