Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Let's Talk About S-E-X: A Guide for Kids 9 to 12 and Their Parents by Sam Gitchel and Lorri Foster tackles one tough subject in a frank, conversational tone. Beginning with "The Inside Story," about how sexual organs develop (anatomical line drawings illustrate), the narrative then segues into a discussion of intercourse. Many parents will welcome the way the authors dispel common misconceptions ("Many teenagers face a lot of pressure to have intercourse before they are ready.... The truth is, most teenagers are not having sex"). A section for parents helps them prepare for this discussion, anticipating questions and offering a list of Web sites and other resources.

Guys you are over re-acting you will have to do it some time in your life. Also if you are ever in a room and you can not get out and thare is someone in thare with you and if thare trying to make you have sex with thum you will know what to do and what not to do. When you get older it is a grate thing in life it is a blessing from GOD to have sex it will feel so good so i would get it.

This book explains everything that a 9-12 yr. old needs to know about sex. It gives the basic facts that kids around 9-12 should know. It also has a guide in the back so parents can read how to word your talk to your child about sex. Parents should buy this book because it has all the facts your child should know if there around the age of 9-12 like the review does.

Listen up morons! Yeah sex may be gross but thats how you were made! Would you rather have parents that say, " Eeeww making babies is gross lets not do it!" And then you selfish imbecile you would never have been born. So suck it up act mature if you have maturity at all and accept it. The way babys are made isnt gonna change.

This information is importants to know when you are old enough to have... um... it. It is definitely is gross, though. So stay in school and don't have it until you are married or something. By the way, I'm 13. -GravityFallerGirl

F***ing grow up. If your mom/dad/sister got this for you, it means they want you to be aware of this. Personally, i'm a 15 year old. I got this for my 12th birthday and I was scared to read it. I picked it up the other day out of curiosity and I read it. Even I, a 15 year old, got information I didn't know before out of it.  My mom just didn't want me to go Google the questions I needed answered, and i'm sure your parents feel the same way. If anyone needs questions answered in further detail then you know, ill be here to help.
