30 Days of Sex Talks, Empowering Your Child with Knowledge of Sexual Intimacy for Ages 3-7–An Amazing Tool for Parents

By Amanda Scott and Dina Alexander

Written by parents and reviewed by professionals, 30 Days of Sex Talks  makes it simple for you and your child to talk about sex in the context in which it belongs; as part of a healthy relationship that also includes joy, laughter and the full range of emotion that defines human intimacy.

We’ve made it easy to engage your child in vital conversations about relationships, affection, anatomy, respecting others, romantic love, pornography and other online dangers.
 We have also included dialogues on important topics such as boundaries, ’my body belongs to me,’ ’how to say ‘no,’’ and predators. Using the numerous questions and conversation starters we have provided, you can launch these essential talks with your child and interject your personal thoughts, feelings and cultural beliefs.

Parents are encouraged to use their own experiences, cultural beliefs and personal values to guide each discussion and provide encouragement and guidelines for their children. You need not be an expert in addressing these topics, but you must be the first, best source of information on these vital issues. Research has repeatedly shown that children and adults believe the first source of information on nearly every subject they learn about. This is why it is imperative that parents be the first source when it comes to sex-related issues, rather than television, popular music or online pornography. Even from an early age (as soon as your child can use a cell phone or tablet), your child can easily come across messages from media or online sources that are incomplete, misleading or even dangerous.

These meaningful discussions are essential—and we’ve made them easy! This book also contains downloadable, bonus content. Included with this book is a code that will allow you to download topic cards which can be printed and placed in strategic locations, such as a mirror, refrigerator or in your pocket, to remind you and your child to start talking!

Remember that having these talks with your child will establish a pattern of healthy conversations for the future. (You know and love your child better than anyone, so you will know which topics to start with and which to save for later.) As you move through the discussions, you will feel your confidence grow, your interactions will gain depth and your child will be more receptive to your attention. This will result in a much strengthened relationship. Your goal is that your child will feel comfortable talking to you about anything as he or she grows into the healthy, knowledgeable person he or she will become.

30 Days of Sex Talks is available for three different age groups: 3-7, 8-11 and 12+
