Do you need some help to frame and phrase the conversation properly to avoid embarrassment on both sides?

That help is here, with the straight-talking and no-nonsense Boy Puberty: How to Talk About Puberty and Sex With Your Tween Boy.

Inside the pages of this book, you will find a wealth of information, written in a casual and open style, which includes advice on:

About the Author

Cath Hakanson has been talking to clients about sex for the past 25 years as a nurse, midwife, sex therapist, researcher, blogger and educator. She's spent the past 10 years trying to unravel why parents (herself included) struggle with sex education. Her solution was to create Sex Ed Rescue, an online resource that simplifies sex education and helps parent to empower their children with the right information about sex, so kids can talk to their parents about anything, no matter what.
Cath has lived all over Australia but currently lives in Perth with her partner, 2 children, and ever-growing menagerie of pets. Despite having an unusual profession, she bakes, sews, and knits for sanity, collects sexual trivia, and tries really hard not to embarrass her children in public. Well, most of the time anyway!
