"Where do babies come from?" It’s a question almost every child asks – and one almost every parent dreads.
In reality, there is no need to dread the question, especially when armed with this gospel-centered book on sex education. Written by brad Wilcox, who has taught maturation clinics in elementary schools for years and authored the book Growing Up: Gospel Answers about Maturation and Sex, this book gives parents helpful ideas on how to talk with their children about sex. Parents will learn about the seven P's of sex education:
The illustrated portion of the book provides parents with appropriate answers to questions typically asked by young children. Parents and older children can use the Question and Answer section at the back of the book as a guide in opening a more advanced discussion of these sensitive topics. Moms and dads will especially welcome the open dialogue this book promotes and the simple, gospel-oriented explanations it provides to help children understand the origins of life and appreciate the sacredness of our God-given creative powers.

Must Have for Parents
by kimberly - reviewed on February 09, 2013
I was hesitant to have this conversation with my 8 year old, after all, she hadn't even asked me questions yet. I had read that around 8 was when you should start talking to your child about this sensitive subject so they wouldn't hear it for the first time from other sources. It went so well. This book helped me explain in a spiritual, age appropriate way the sacred nature of marriage and procreation. I know my conversation with my daughter on this subject will be on-going, but I feel like we have started off on the right foot. I highly recommend it!
