The Big Talk is probably the most dreaded discussion any parent will ever have with their child.

Although it may not feel like it, discussing sex with your young child really is a privilege. Embracing your role allows you to incorporate Godly sexual values as you teach the biology of it. And the best time to lay this foundation is before age 12.

Okay, hows this instead? By using the PARENT Approach included in this book you certainly wont fear it as much as you do now.
Filled with practical tools and actual dialogue and discussion examples, Teaching the Birds and the Bees without the Butterflies will give you the encouragement to courageously tackle this sensitive issue with confidence and allow you to shape your child’s sexual values before they reach the teen years.
Be prepared when the time comes.
I teach my kids about the birds and bees
WE all remember where we were when we had our first sex education lesson. Some may have had all the facts presented to them in a clear and precise fashion, whilst others learned it through rumour and innuendo in the school yard. But whatever the manner in which it was delivered, finding out about reproduction and the functions of the relevant body parts is an important issue and one every parent must consider with regard to their own child. Some leave it up to the school to deliver lessons of this delicate nature but most children are curious from a very young age and experts believe it is important to tell them the truth and not turn what is a very natural question into something of a taboo subject. A general rule of thumb is that fifth class is a good year developmentally to start giving more details, but it really depends on your child and where they are emotionally.

As a growing number of MeToo and WhyIDidntReport stories have put a new focus on childhood sexual abuse, parents may have an urgent sense that they should frame conversations with their children about their bodies as safety lessons. But doubling down on warnings is the opposite of what children really need. Here are three essential lessons parents of children under 6 can follow to help kids stay safe, confident and shame-free in their skin. When my oldest daughter turned 3, a certain worry started to keep me up at night. I sensed that her risk of sexual abuse was increasing with her age, and I needed to teach her more about her body in order to keep her safe. And shame, in turn, is the mechanism that perpetrators of sexual violence rely upon to keep victims silent. According to the Dutch approach and many American sexuality educators , risks and warnings should not dominate our body conversations with kids.
