Reviewed by Joy Hannabass for Readers' Favorite Do you talk to your kids about sex? If you don’t, where will they learn it? Josh and Dottie McDowell have written this book because they want to help parents and guardians teach their kids about sex. And the special thing about this book is that it teaches God’s plan for sex in each of our lives. Some of the things you will find in this thirty chapter book are: 'Who and What Most Influences You Child’s Behavior'; 'Doesn’t Talking About It Encourage It'; 'Shouldn’t Certain Issues be Off-limits'; 'When Does Monitoring Become an Invasion of Privacy'?; and 'Six Ways to Become Wise Parents Who Talk to their Kids About Sex'. As I read through this book, I wished I had had this book years ago when my son was young. Josh and Dottie McDowell leave nothing out when talking to parents about this important subject. They are straight and to the point as they give Biblical advice on talking to children about sex. I really like that they don’t teach parents to preach to their kids, but rather to talk to them in a loving and caring way. This is truly a book every parent needs in their home. Your kids are going to learn about this subject one way or another, and you may think they already know more than you do, but you still need to talk to them about the real reason God created sex. And you will not find a better book than “Straight Talk with Your Kids About Sex.” I highly recommend that you pick up a copy of this valuable book as soon as possible and start your journey of learning the right way to approach your children about this important subject.
