“The knowledge you will gain from her book is priceless.” (Arline McGraw Oberst, coauthor of Chicken Soup for the Volunteer’s Soul)
For generations American parents have been getting a failing grade in the important job of talking with their children about sex. The Sex-Wise Parent is just the tool needed to raise that grade to an A+. It's sound information and advice--a must read for parents.” (David Walsh, Ph.D., author of Why Do They Act That Way? A Survival Guide to the Adolescent Brain for You and Your Teen)
About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
This book should be required reading for every parent as soon as a child is born. Divided into four parts, The Sex-Wise Parent begins with a loving call for action, explains all of the biology parents need to know to promote healthy sexuality, a realistic look at the dangers in our society, and sound advice on what to do when problems arise. Dr. Rosenzweig includes a state-by-state list of where to report child abuse, two full pages of online resources, extensive references supporting the facts provided in each chapter, and an index to make all of the information in the book easily accessible. Sprinkled throughout the book are special notes to adults who were victimized as children providing needed comfort, perspective, and reassurance.
Every parent should read this book!
We realize that they need to drive and that we cannot hold their hands forever.
There are other dangers that children face, not only in today's society but historically. Their ability to defend themselves against sexual predation has always been necessary. We have only relatively recently become so aware of the problem.
I believe that, among other things, this book offers parents the tools to educate their children in this area so that they will be armed against those who seek to take advantage.
Children are smart.
They just need the tools.
This is a difficult topic for parents to approach, but one that must be spoken about openly in a safe and trusting environment, as communication is key when raising children and preparing them for the world , with all the wonders and horrors it holds.
"Sex-wise parent" gives you tools on how to deal and how to openly talk about sex, abuse and bullying with your child and help him/her be better equipped to face these issues when confronted with them.
This should be translated in every language and shared around the world.
Thank you Dr. Rosenzweig!
While perhaps not as enlightened by personal experience and challenges, this book serves to educate me on a most important topic that is a part of all of our worlds. It has given me insight and perspective that I have not had...and after reading this book I reenter the world a much more responsible adult ready to join the ranks of all who want to help children and their families to aviod and stop abuses that may come their way.
