Having trouble talking to your kids about sex? Their friends at school don't... Unfortunately, for many parents, the most important conversations are the hardest. Ninety-three percent of adults are dissatisfied with the sex education they received as children, which is precisely why they are so bad at teaching their kids-they have no frame of reference. Renowned Harvard Medical School psychologist and frequent Dr. Phil guest John Chirban helps parents talk to their kids . . . about sex. Kids are going to learn about sex, and it is up to parents to decide if their kids are going to learn from them or from MTV. How parents address sex-their openness, the context, and their attitudes-will impact how their children view their own sexuality and self worth. Dr. Chirban helps parents know when, how, and how much. He uses humor, compassion, and real-life examples to prepare parents for a healthy and ongoing conversation that will equip their kids to own their own sexuality and an understanding of the larger issues of relationships, love, commitment, and intimacy.In addition, parents understand how helping their children understand these veiled yet critical keys of a fulfilling life deepens their own connection with their children.

Smith shares a practical, non-threatening model that will connect your child to God's perspective on sex and intimacy.

“The greatest enemy of sexual wholeness today,” asserts Mark Laaser, Ph.D., “is silence.” A therapist specializing in the field of sexual health, Dr. Laaser has worked with hundreds of adults who suffer the consequences of sexual sin and dysfunction. All of them long to have had meaningful conversations with their parents about sex when they were growing up. Most parents would agree that healthy sexuality should be taught at home rather than left to their children’s teachers, peers, or culture. However, even parents with the best intentions can feel at a loss regarding where to start. In Talking with Your Kids about Sex, Dr. Laaser cuts through the confusion, coaching you through specific, age-appropriate discussions you can have with your son or daughter from early childhood through young adulthood; giving guidance on how to explore and examine your own sexual beliefs and issues; and empowering you to help your child develop a healthy and biblical understanding of sexuality, a glorious gift from God.
