JerryBlountsHouston, MLAge: 25-34Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5The Power of a Loving RelationshipAugust 13, 2012JerryBlountsHouston, MLAge: 25-34Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This author provides an amazing range of information about parents and kids concerning sexuality. My big take-away, however, is the depth and sensitivity Dr. Chirban details for establishing a loving relationship with your kid that creates the foundation for any issue, including the many tough topics of sexuality. His high regard for spirituality comes through what he writes and his experiences with his kids are moving, heartfelt, and convincing. I also loved the humor, current events references, and emphasis on values throughout the book.

JoannaFeildsPittsburgh, PAAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Spiritually Sensitive and Solid SupportAugust 11, 2012JoannaFeildsPittsburgh, PAAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5We always says that God blesses sexuality and that sexuality is good--but there's a huge golf between that ideal and what parents have to deal with the nitty-gritty of really working with sexuality in their kids' lives. I loved this book. It is warm, frank, clear, and very spiritually sensitive to the values that seem at odds with most of what we see in the media about sex. This book gives parents needed support. While I thought I had it pretty much under control and was just tweaking my kniowledge and stance, I found myself nodding as the author was saying what I wasn't expressing to my kids but what is in my heart.
