Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Kaeser pulls no punches in his honest approach to the birds and the bees. Parents who put his advice within the context of his primary message—the three most important sex words in this book are loverespect, and trust—will have no doubt that Kaeser is deeply committed to children and their health.”
—Library Journal, STARRED REVIEW

“Dr. Kaeser’s writing style is clear, informative, and wonderfully personal—if you are one of the great majority of parents who is anxious about discussing your child’s sexual development and their questions about sex, then this book must be read.”
—RONALD MOGLIA, Ed.D., New York University
