Clearly these areas require halakhic knowledge as well as professional training and experience. Dr. Debow makes reference, either in the text or in a footnote, to the rabbinic authorities she has consulted. Inevitably one will be aware of other authorities, who differ on one point or another, but this does not lessen the value of her book. It is the first work I have seen that will help a parent discuss intimacy or human sexuality from a Torah perspective.
A child s issues impact on the entire family. Proper use of this book will create a healthier atmosphere leading to greater trust in parents. Many problems fester because children face them alone without support. Even when a professional is needed the initiative often has to come from a parent. The information and techniques described in this book are an important aid for a parent who wants to have open discussions with his or children about sexuality or intimacy.
Dr. Debow focuses on the modern Orthodox parent whose children are exposed to the Internet and Western culture. It assumes some interaction between boys and girls. It would be easy for those in a more insular Haredi world to dismiss this book as irrelevant. My sense is they will benefit from her insights as well. The assumption that it is not tzanua to discuss these topics almost guarantees that one s children will pick up erroneous information from those whose notions of sexuality run counter to all our values.
It is apparent that this work is the product of a great deal of research as well as professional experience. No topic is too delicate or controversial to be tackled. Yet it is written with sensitivity and refinement. This is not a book to be read in one sitting and then put on a shelf. It is reader-friendly with a summary at the end of each chapter.
The world we live in is complex and confusing. It is not an easy time for one who is an adolescent. Removed parents do not provide support. Talking about Intimacy and Sexuality is a wonderful tool aiding parents to engage their children in meaningful conversations about significant aspects of their lives and giving them guidance. We all owe a debt of gratitude to Dr. Debow for a wonderful book which will hopefully lead to a paradigm change in parent-children relationships in the Orthodox community. --~ Rabbi Yosef Blau, Mashgiach Ruchani, Rabbi Isaac Elchanan Theological Seminary, New York, NY
They're going to learn it from somewhere, and it may not be what you want them to hear. Talking About Intimacy & Sexuality: A Guide for Orthodox Jewish Parents is a parenting guide aiming on the discussing approaching the topic through the perspective of traditional Jewish faith. Encouraging a sensible approach to the topic that parents of any faith usually seek to stray away from, Dr. Yocheved Debow offers much to ponder on reaching on to your kinds. Talking About Intimacy & Sexuality is a must for Judaic studies and parenting collections. --~ The Midwest Book Review
