Sexual images saturate today's culture--and children will learn about sex somewhere. But research shows that they want to learn from the parents they trust.
Talking about sex doesn't have to be a fear-filled challenge. The Focus on the Family® Guide to Talking with Your Kids about Sex shows parents how to talk with confidence to their kids about sex and sexuality. This candid resource is full of the latest information, practical insights, and age-appropriate answers to the questions parents and children ask about sex. Focus on the Family's Physicians Resource Council, along with research from The Medical Institute for Sexual Health provides parents with the tools and empowering encouragement they need in order to communicate more effectively and biblically about sex, self-control, and self-respect at every stage of a child's development.
The Physicians Resource Council is a panel of more than twenty-five physicians from across the United States and Canada that assists Focus on the Family on medical and health-related topics and provides guidance on bioethical issues.
