Overview

There is a subtle sexual force affecting our kids today and this book teaches parents how to recognize it and actively do something about it.

Currently kids are being hyper-sexualized by the exploding provocativeness in the media. Parents can develop the skills to recognize these subtle influences, and the knowledge to counteract and do something about it. In The Sexualization of America's Kids, J.E. Wright draws on his 22 years as a therapist, working with over 1,000 kids and their families, to demonstrate how this provocativeness affects our kids. He uses their stories to discuss how kids fall prey to these negative presentations, and he recommends Seven Ways to Raise Sexually Healthy Children and Teenagers.

Mr. Wright's use of dialogue role-plays and actual case examples shows parents when and how to appropriately communicate on sexuality issues with their different age kids. His caring and concrete approach makes this book a necessity for all parents raising kids today.
