Product Description

Sexuality is a precious gift from God; when handled responsibly, it is a source of blessing and delight. But how can parents encourage this outcome when so many forces push children to make bad choices about sex and when even from their earliest years children are bombarded by destructive, false messages about the nature of sexual intimacy? First messages are the most powerful; why wait until your child hears the wrong thing and then try to correct it? Sexuality is a beautiful gift; why not present it to children the way God intended? Why not establish yourself as the trusted expert to whom your children can turn to find out God's truth about sexuality?

The God's Design for Sex series helps parents shape their children's character, particularly in the area of sexuality. Sex education in the family is less about biological information and more about shaping your child's moral character. The earlier children learn to see themselves as God does---including their sexuality---the stronger they will be as they enter the turbulent teen years. The parents' resource manual, How and When to Tell Your Kids About Sex: A Lifelong Approach to Shaping Your Child's Sexual Character, offers comprehensive information on what parents can do to shape their children's sexual character.

Third in the series, this book reinforces previous instruction on the basics of sexual intercourse and the fundamental goodness of our sexuality, continues the task of deliberately building your child's understanding of why God intends sex to be reserved for marriage, and helps you begin the process of "inoculating" your child against the negative moral messages of the world. The principle of inoculation suggests that while we should not allow our children to be inundated with the destructive messages of the world, we should deliberately expose them to the contrary moral messages that they will hear in order to build up their defenses against them. Content is presented in a question & answer format in which questions by "Sam" and "Amy" are followed by answers from "Mom" and "Dad." You can read this book with your child or have him/her read it and then discuss it with you. Each chapter is concluded with questions for discussion. Recommended for ages 8 to 11.

    I must admit, the topic of sex is uncomfortable for me (or my husband) to explain to our children. Neither of us EVER had a sex talk with our parents. As a result, A.) We don't feel comfortable communicating anything about sex, B.) We don't know how to talk to our children about it.

    My husband feels very convicted that it is vital for parents to introduce the topic first to children so they have a baseline, and can know when they hear something (which they will), they will trust us, and know that God's way is best.

    My husband first learned about sex in Kindergarten (age 5) when a classmate stole a playboy from his older brother. While I was mortified when he suggested we talk to our six-year-old son about sex (I was then pregnant with our youngest). He was correct, it was an appropriate time to introduce some very basic facts about sex.

    The first two books recommend you introduce the book as a regular story, such as at bedtime. --In my opinion, it is unrealistic for parents to believe they can have a single talk with a teenage child about sex, and then expect them to somehow navigate through a sexually-driven culture with very little help or guidance thereafter. If we want our children to honor God with their bodies, we must be real, and they must be taught. I can say that I was raised in the church my entire life, and entering into marriage, I had a very unhealthy attitude about sex.

    Each parent/couple need to evaluate what the long-term goal/approach with this topic should be for their family. This book series, while initially shocking, has proven to work very well, effectively, and answer most of our children's questions. Keep in mind that the age levels are suggested, not concrete. For our sons, we have found the age guides appropriate; perhaps it is different for girls. If you happen to order a particular level and find it too informative, I'd suggest you read the level prior. Prayerfully consider your position and willingness to teach your child this subject.

    This book has too much information in it for this age range. Our little girl is almost 11 and she didn't like reading the book so we put this book and book 4 away and will pull them out again in about 6 mo.

    We have used the first 3 books in this series. My husband and I have read through them together with our 2 older sons (10 and 9) and they have loved it! We are introducing many of these subjects to them for the first time and we'd rather be the ones to do that than movies or their friends. They haven't been uncomfortable with the topics because we are all discussing together. We have read through the 2nd book with our 7 year old daughter. We plan to begin reading the fourth book when our boys are 11 and 12. We've been VERY pleased with the series.

    I have been a cbd customer for yrs and have come to trust them soooo much, however I would not EVER recommend this book. It is so very highly inappropriate for the recommended age group. I would NEVER have read this book and its content to my 9 yr. old as it was way to explicit. What happened to letting our kids be kids? I totally agree that we should be the ones toteach them about their bodies and sex but WOW!!! it really needed to be less detail for each age in this series. I ordered some other books when I ordered this set and the others were MUCH more beneficial for my family.

Q: How does the book explain homosexuality?

A:

This book explains homosexuality as sinful sexual behavior, which is outside of God's loving design for sex and briefly explains the fact that our bodies are not designed for it. People that practice it are held up as sinners in need of God's redemption, just like anyone else that chooses to disobey God's rules.
