    a courageous perspective

    Linda and Richard Eyre's perspective on 'the big talk' is a wake up call for parents who think all they need to discuss are the mechanics. Their morality-centered, responsible approach focuses on open lines of communication between parent and child about issues of sexuality and beyond. A must-read, this book helps parents to clarify their own feelings about sex and morality, and relate to their children with confidence.

    Fills the needed niche

    This book is unique because it provides the moral element in teaching kids about sex that is so often left out. Many of us parents know that sexual experimentation is beginning at a increasingly younger age in today's society, and are terrified for how much trouble our kids can get into so easily. This book teaches the necessary self-control that kids need to develop, yet also depicts sex as the profound, joyful act that it is. It gives specific ideas and suggestions for how to teach kids in an age-appropriate way that won't take away their innocence too soon, yet that will pre-empt what they learn at school. It encourages an openness between parent and child about this important topic, with the goal that your child will always come to you with questions and to clear up misconceptions they may have received from friends. I found it quite helpful.
