Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0787959146, Paperback)Your kid's sexual education is likely to be a difficult topic to think about. Caught between fear of causing embarrassment and concern over the dangers of ignorance, it's a wonder that parents manage more than a blush and stutter while handing over a textbook. How Can We Talk About That? is designed to get at the root of the real problem: how your sexual history, fears, and hang-ups can get in the way of your ability to provide parental guidance in the matter of sex.
Neatly avoiding any discussion of relative morals, author Jane DiVita Woody has created a series of shorts tests that help both Mom and Dad honestly evaluate their sexual past--and present. From questions on your level of satisfaction to rating your worries as a parent, these tests are designed to provide a full understanding of your sexual fears, insecurities, and strengths.
Practical suggestions for using what you learn to improve communication with your partner are given; if you can't bring yourself to talk to your husband, will you do a good job teaching your child? Later chapters are devoted to appropriate topics of sexual education for different ages, all the way from a child's first year of life until she turns 18.
We all want to pass our values onto our kids, but we know that we can't depend on others to do it for us. Woody opens a clear path for starting the process by helping us better understand our own feelings about sex. --Jill Lightner
