Dr. Chirban's book was not only an inspiration but described a wide spectrum of life issues related to sexuality with which all kids struggle. His book really helped me address concerns with which my daughter was struggling but was uncomfortable to discuss. Well written and actually fun to read!
Talk about sex is a hard subject when kids have so many influences from outsidie, the media, and friends. With science, faith, and love, Dr. Chirban helps you to affirm the power of your values and communicate openly and honestly with your children. I was so gratified that my kids opened up and talked about their honest concerns. This book showed me how to make it happen. I highly recommend it!
I have three children (5, 11, and 17). Throughout my children's lives I have searched high and low for guidance on how to talk with my kids about sex, just when I had begun losing hope... I stumbled upon Dr. Chirban's new book. Chirban's book has incredible depth and guidance, but at the same time he doesn't push his values and moral views on me. Dr. Chirban helps build a great structure for me to fill in with my own beliefs and feelings, I couldn't ask for more!! Strongly recommend to all parents!
This book is wonderful for parents seeking to be open and honest with their children. Many people have very different opinions about this subject and how to approach it with their children. The fact is there are many different interpretations regarding sexuality in the various denominations, but this book provides the tools parents need to help children understand the difference between love, sex and intimacy.
Dr. Chirban shows great compassion and sincerity in this book and it is obvious he has the very best motivation of heart for both parents and children alike in sharing this information in our world today.
I planned to talk to my daughter about sexual issues after she was seven--and thought that I was ahead of the game. This book helped me realize the importance of opening these discussions even earlier in and age-appropriate way. And I am glad I did. While this book gives you very helpful words to put the issues of sexuality in perspective from early on, it helped me realize that the other issues, as well, such as peer pressure, eating concerns, body self, and bullying affect what Dr. Chirban calls the "sexual self"--and the importance of my close relationship with my daughter to discuss these matters. So many important topics are covered. I shared the book with my friends and we each found areas that spoke to us in similar and different ways that we valued. This book is a blessing. I strongly recommend "How to Talk to Your Kids About Sex" because it helps you realize that the time is NOW to deal with sex and love with your kids.
