From the Back Cover

More changes occur in your body and brain during puberty than during any other time in your life. Puberty marks the beginning of big changes in your relationships with your parents and with the opposite sex. It's a wonderful and exhilarating time because you're finally becoming an adult, but it can be a stressful and overwhelming time, too. If you don't understand what's happening to you, or why, ages 11 to 14 can be downright scary. Facing the Facts was written to give you all of the information you need to understand exactly what's happening to your body during the years ahead and why God planned it to happen just that way. You'll learn about: * The role of puberty in the development of sexuality * How girls' and boys' bodies change, both inside and out * Exactly how a woman gets pregnant and gives birth * Why God wants you to save sex for marriage * Love, dating, and how relationships mature * Tough answers to some tough problems Your body and its sexual nature are beautiful and exciting gifts from God that He wants you to understand and appreciate. Reading Facing the Facts and talking about it with your parents will help you be ready for the coming physical changes, equip you to handle the sexual pressures you'll encounter throughout your life, and give you a better understanding of God's perfect design for sex.

My husband and I spent a year preparing for the coming "talk" with our oldest when I came across this series. There is 4 books in all. We have used books 1-3 and have been extremely pleased with how the content and each topic was handled. At first I was worried that some levels where a little more than I was ready for my kids to know but we went ahead and covered each topic in the book. My kids LOVED them and appreciated having all their questions answered so throughoughly and lovingly. The authors do an outstanding job communicating the love God has for them and what His intenstions are for sexuality. I highly recommend these books for children of all ages.

As a Christian Parent raised in a family that never discussed sex, I found this book (and the series) to be a great starting point. It hits all the right topics in a way that communicates a Christian view without using guilt or sounding preachy. Parents should read it themselves, then pass it on to their child. Don't wait for your child to hit puberty before you start talking about this important subject.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I carefully read all the reviews on all the 'Sex-Ed' books on Amazon in order to find the best one for my 12 year old daughter (to be used later for my 9 year old son and 8 year old daughter.) We are second-generation homeschoolers and attend a Christian church. I wanted something Bible-based that would reflect our moral views. This book seemed to be the best fit. IT WASN'T.

This book is written by a married couple who were virgins on their wedding night. I was a virgin at 22 when I married my husband. He wasn't. I am the daughter of a teenage mom. I attended college early and work as a Paramedic. I have never been in trouble with the police, although I am married to a police officer. I felt comfortable talking about life issues with my step-father. My mother was 15 when she married my 17 year old father after discovering she was pregnant. My father died when I was 5 and my sister was 2; my mother married my dad a year later.

But according to the book, I should never have been born.

Chapters 1 & 2 were ok. Anatomically correct drawings of male and female organs. Lots of opinion, no footnotes or references. But it is easy to read and uses correct terminology. (Although it does tell readers that the "uterus...delivers the life-giving air, food, and water the baby needs." How about waiting for the placenta chapter and then describing it as oxygen and nutrition?) Chapters 3 & 4 continue the information with details about body changes for boys and girls. Again, lots of opinion, and non-referenced facts.

Chapter five begins the downward spiral. The second paragraph states that "pregnancy and childbirth are not always such wonderful events. When a teenage girl gets pregnant outside of marriage, it changes the course of her whole life.

It's really not that difficult. Preview the product before you unleash it on your kids. Isn't that your job as a parent anyhow? The series is amazing! Another reviewer needed stats, but we found assumptions made in the book don't need "stats" to support them. And as an educated women with 3 degrees and several statistic courses under my belt, I can tell you that "stats" are misrepresented all the time...just saying. We have used it with the four oldest and plan to continue with the little ones. We are a homeschooling family and followers of Christ.

I bought this book for my daughter and I to go through together. It is biblically based, so it goes along with what we are trying to teach her in regard to relationships, but it does it from a preteen perspective. I couldn't be happier with it.

I had borrowed a friend's a couple of years back so was really looking to us having our own copies at home. Very clear, concise, enjoyable to read with/by our three boys (ages 7, 9, and 12) and very realistic. Also great for starting up a good discussion. Best to let our children hear of these things from God's perspective first. I would (and have) highly recommended these books to everyone I know with young minds to train in the Lord's way. Well done.

Wow! I'm not really sure when will be the appropriate age for sharing this book with my child, but in my opinion these books are not age-appropriate for the ages that they suggest. Maybe the oldest age could be the beginning age. Phew, very graphic and detailed.
