Norton Pub
A leading sexuality educator's warm, practical, step-by-step program for helping parents provide accurate information and communicate their own values to their children. Millions of Americans know Debra Haffner from her appearances on Dateline, Good Morning America, 20/20, and other network shows. Whether she is discussing how to help kids deal with the onslaught of sexual messages they see in the media or providing sensible guidance on teaching the facts of life, parents are comforted by Haffner's values-oriented approach to raising sexually healthy children. Her new book offers a wealth of practical techniques to help parents identify and communicate their own values about sexuality to their children. Organized from infancy through adolescence, each chapter includes: Values Exercises: Questions to help parents sort out their own values about sexuality and decide what they want to teach their children. What to Expect and How to Prepare: Lively discussions on each s tage of a child's life, filled with relevant information, sparkling anecdotes, and sample conversations. Teachable Moments: How to find and use opportunities throughout a child's life to bring up specific issues of sexuality instead of waiting to have that "big talk." Excerpted from the foreword by the author's 13-year-old daughter: It hasn't always been easy having a mother who is a sexuality educator. Sometimes, it's hard to tell my new friends, their parents, and even my teachers, what she does for a living. But all in all, the positives outweigh the negatives. . . .Here's some of what's been good: I always can come to my mother with any question or problem. . . . She's great for science projects and homework. . . . I know that as I get older, my mom will be there for me and my friends.
