Sex remains one of the least comfortable -- and thus least discussed -- topics between parents and children. Even the most enlightened parent can get queasy at the prospect of "the talk," despite its importance in helping youngsters become well-informed teens and responsible adults. "Hablemos acerca del S-E-X-O is a short, illustrated book that parent and child can sit down with and read together. First created by Planned Parenthood in the 1980s, and taking a simple, factual approach to the subject, the book makes that crucial conversation possible and even enjoyable by encouraging open dialogue, offering clear, correct information, and giving strategies for age-appropriate discussions that neither judge nor frighten. The book discusses feelings, what's normal, how and why the body changes, making sense of love and sex, sexually transmitted diseases, and much more. The simple language and illustrations invite young readers to revisit the information if they have not absorbed it all in one sitting.Gitchel, Sam is the author of 'Hablemos Acerca Del S-e-x-o ' with ISBN 9781931863193 and ISBN 1931863199.
