More about the book

Children need help to build up a constructive picture of what being a grownup is and where sexuality fits into the world. Parents, and those who work with children, need to step up and provide kids with real sexual facts, and with responsible notions of sexual behaviour.

The Sex EXplanation Handbook helps in three main ways:

1. It includes the most difficult sexual topics;

2. It gives actual words you can use for ages preschool through the teens – and the words are in plain English;

3. It encourages and gives suggestions for talking about the sexual behaviours you feel are important.

Kids need information and they need direction. This book helps you provide both.
