If you think sex education is still about the birds and the bees, you're wrong. And it's not about science either. If you're a parent with children in the public school system, you need to know what's really going on.In You're Teaching My Child What? Dr. Miriam Grossman rips back the curtain on sex education today, exposing a sordid truth. Instead of teaching our children the facts of life, sex educators are lying to them, ignoring medical fact in favor of politicized, and dangerous, propaganda that could ruin your child's life forever. In You're Teaching My Child What? you'll learn what sex educators don't want you to know:
* Why the discredited founder of "sexology"dead for half a centuryhas more influence on sex education than today's most eminent neurobiologists
* How information your child gets about common infections like herpes, warts, and Chlamydia is whitewashed
* When "safe sex" isn't safe: why condoms won't protect your teens from some of the most serious sexually transmitted diseases
* How sex educators try to normalize fringe behaviorsignoring the health risks to your children
The sex education establishment would like to lull you into thinking that they know bestbut the epidemic of sexually transmitted infections in young people today is testimony to a system that's gone mad.

What People are Saying About This
"Parents, this book is a gift from a gutsy doctor who puts your child first. Dr. Miriam Grossman examines what the powerful sex education industry teaches your child, and what she finds will make your hair curl. Do you have a child in school? With this book you'll understand the destructive agendas of so-called 'scientific' sex ed, then you'll learn what your kids really need to know: politically incorrect truths that blow those agendas out of the water. Finally, a doctor who's brave enough to break ranks and call foul. We owe her a standing ovation."--(Dr. Laura Schlessinger, Author and host of a nationally syndicated radio program)
"Dr. Miriam Grossman is a bright, bold, but solitary beacon revealing the avalanche of faulty sex education and counseling that is endangering the physical and emotional health of our young people and corrupting their futures. This is an alert that all parents must read, and an antidote that our young people can use against those so-called experts who would indoctrinate them."--(Nicholas A. Cummings, Ph.D., Sc.D. Former President, American Psychological Association)
"The sex education lobby systematically undermines traditional morality and aggressively promotes an ideology of sexual license while pretending to be concerned only with the health and safety of young people. The sad truth is that by subtly (and sometimes not-so-subtly) encouraging and often facilitating adolescent sexual activity, the sex ed establishment jeopardizes the physical and emotional health of children as well as their moral and spiritual welfare. It is high time that someone stepped forward to expose much contemporary sex education for what it is, namely, a series of catechism classes for the pseudo-religion of sexual liberationism. Dr. Miriam Grossman has done just that. This bold and brilliant physician has done the nation and its children a great service. Everyone who believes, as I do, in the importance of childhood innocence and safety, and the sound moral development of young men and women, owes Dr. Grossman an enormous debt."--(Robert P. George, McCormick Professor of Jurisprudence and Director of the James Madison Program in American Ideals and Institutions, Princeton University)

The best book on where the fabled "evolution of human sexuality" is headed and what parents and children can do about it. But even more significant is that it details the science of human attachment and also social programming, which explains why so many people have such diverse views on the subject of human sexuality today.
I recently compleated my sex ed class this last year as a freshman. They tought us that absinace was tbe only way to be %100 safe from SDTs and pregnacy. We learned about the facts of pregancy. We also learned about how sexuality is your own choice. We learned how to PROPERLY put on a condom. We also learned aout 10 different ways to prevent either STDs or pregnacy and the effectiveness of ech one(based off a percent). Now how would like to tell me i gatherd tamered information?
I heard Dr. Grossman interviewed on the radio. I was so compelled by her intellect and knowledge of the subject of Sexual Education in the public schools, that I purchased her book. This was a first for me. You see, I have three teenage children, two in college, and one in high school. I thought that it was high time I took a look at what their peers are being taught. Dr. Grossman lays out, systematically and thoroughly in this book, the inaccuracies and outright lies of what is being taught by SIECUS (The Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States), Planned Parenthood, and Advocates for Youth in our schools, and on websites that are recommended by our schools in the Sex Ed programs and accompanying pamphlets and brochures handed out in the nurses office or during the class. This book starts with showing who is exactly teaching your children. She then covers the topic of the differences between boys and girls, and the false information taught in the SE classes. Next, she talks about the abstinence/protection/do it if it feels right issue, the doctor's responsibility, the plagues of incurable sexually transmitted infections, gender identity and homosexual/heterosexual/transgender/etc. issues. All of these topics are taught to our children in the public schools. If a child doesn't go to a public school, not to worry, most of this information is also available on line from the three above mentioned organizations and their websites, plus the sites that they link from within their sites. No child in the United States is truly exempt from this teaching. The text is 188 pages with 48 pages of footnotes in much smaller font than the text. She amazed me with the research, and study that went into this book. In the introduction, I began to verify each footnote sited. By the end of the introduction, which contained 31 footnotes for 14 pages of text, I was convinced that she had done her homework and had completely studied and verified her claims. She makes a statement, and then shows you with easy to verify footnotes that prove what she is saying is true. Many footnotes are easily found online. The book is filled with personal stories of her medical practice at university medical centers, as well as others that she has gleaned elsewhere. She convinced me that the SE classes are being taught with faulty, outdated data, and sometimes even unscientific data. She presents in this book, the most up to date data and research available. One table that she presents as an appendix at the end of the book is dated June 19, 2009. This is current information. This is valid information. Our children are not being given the most up to date, accurate information in their sex ed classes. They are being misled about things such as condom failure rates, percentages of sexually transmitted infections (STIs), the fact that the younger you begin sexual activity, the more likely you are to become infected with an STI. This book needs to be read by you and your children if you deem it appropriate for their age. I would never recommend a parent give this book to your children to read before you have pre-viewed it. It is a book that we have discussed at great length in our home, but I would not allow younger children near it. It is graphic when it needs to be. We are talking about sex here, so a parent must use their own discretion when teaching the facts in this book to their children.
