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!
