Product Details


An excellent guide covering children's and teens' sexuality issues. Haffner (president, Sexuality, Information and Education Council of the United States) has been in the forefront of sexuality education for over a decade. Here, she travels through the stages of a child's life, outlining sexual development, needs, issues, and problems. All people are sexual, she states, even preschoolers, and all approaches to understanding sexuality are based on some kind of value system; parents must understand their own values in order to be clear and consistent with their kids. Haffner's message is practical and frank, both forward-looking and nonpermissive. She encourages parents to seize opportunities for conversations about sex in small moments, from the time the kids are preschoolers, and discourages reliance on The Big Talk, which often comes too late. Middle-schoolers, she argues, should not "date"; the TV does not belong in a child's bedroom; abstinence is the rule for any pre-teen; and parents must know the benefits and risks of the net. A bibliography of books, videos, and association hotlines is included. Essential for all public libraries.ÄLinda Beck, Indian Valley P.L., Telford, PA Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
