Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Schaefer and DiGeronimo take a no-nonsense approach to sex (and AIDS), death, alcoholism, masturbation and other topics parents might otherwise choose to avoid--if only they could! Aimed at 4- to 12-year-olds, How to Talk is matter-of-fact and realistic without being hard-nosed; that is, it treats tough issues in a sensitive, helpful fashion. Jo Peer-Haas

Review

Divided into age-appropriate suggestions, this book presents simple, but meaningful ways of discussing the most difficult problems facing parents and their children today." (Frank Manginello, director of neonatology, The Valley Hospital, Ridgewood, New Jersey)

"This book is clear, factual, and authoritative. . . How to Talk to Your Kids About Really Important Things belongs on the shelf of really important books for evey parent and child health provider." (William E. Sobesky, director of psychology training, University of Colorado Health Services Center)

"Parents caring for and loving children, as well as professionals working with children, will find this comprehensive, clearly-written book comforting and helpful." (Marjorie Hogan, M.D., Hennepin County Medical Center and spokesperson, American Academy of Pediatrics)

Format: Paperback
As a mother of 3 small daughters and a prevention specialist, I thought this book was great. It gives easy, age appropriate answers for questions that parents may be uncomfortable answering because of the subject matter or lack of knowledge. It is a good way to start a conversation with your child.
