A straight-talking guide for modern parents about how and when to talk to their young children about sex and sexuality, from a professor of human sexuality and former director of New York City public schools health education.

Children are growing up faster than ever these days. From sexting to cyberbullying, challenges and pressures abound--even for kids as young as four or five. But parents can help their children grow up with integrity in a hypersexualized world--by starting honest, clear communication about sex early and often in a child's life. What Your Child Needs to Know About Sex is a practical parents' guide that goes far beyond the birds and the bees to offer families the tools they need for navigating how and when to have positive dialogues about sexuality.

I highly recommend this book for parents of kids aged 4 to 14. In our sexualized society, it is important that parents help their children cope with the sexual messages they are bombarded with. This book will walk you through how to be a positive force in the development of your child's view of sexuality. The author states that the three most important words in teaching your child about sex are Love, Trust and Respect. This book gives you realistic look at what children are confronted with at a young age, and what you as a parent can do to help.
