CallalliliAge: 25-34Gender: female1 Stars Out Of 5Not age-appropriateNovember 7, 2017CallalliliAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0I bought this book to read with my 9-year-old daughter, who already knows "the basics." The content of this book is not something I will be sharing with her - it is more appropriate for my 12-year-old, but with a lot of editing on my part. There is a way to be informative and factual without being graphic, and this book comes very close to crossing the line. I would rather explain everything myself to my daughter than read her this book. Every family is different in their approach to this topic, but I highly suggest reading this book cover-to-cover before reading it with your child.
mom1 Stars Out Of 5About this bookSeptember 19, 2017momQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0If you're looking for a book with just the basic facts, this is NOT the book for you!! I did not want a book that explains in detail why s*x feels good. I did not want drawings of erect organs or otherwise. just the plain old males have this girls have that. and what those parts of capable of. Way to much info for a young child! !!
Christianmom5 Stars Out Of 5A must haveJanuary 13, 2016ChristianmomQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This book along with the other 3 in the collection are a must have. No need to purchase them all together but i did when my kid was at the 3rd book age range and started with the 1st until we got to the 3rd. I could have just read the 3rd but the second one covered something we had not talked about prior to reading the book. i would say to someone that has not had any sort of conversations on the topic with their kids to start from the 1st. This books are greatto start conversations or to make sure you are covering various topics in an age appropriate way. I would recommend reading each book yourself BEFORE reading it to your kid and to keep in mind that they need to hear about this topics FROM YOU 1st and not get the wrong info out there and wait to fix the damage when its maybe too late.

martins1230North DakotaAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5A Good and Appropriate Tool for ParentsApril 19, 2013martins1230North DakotaAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4I 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.
