The Sex-Wise Parent PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Sex-Wise Parent free pdf Between 70,000 and 90,000 children are sexually abused each year. Wrapped up in these statistics is the unbearable pain caused to these children and those who love them. More meaningful than any statistic is the sad truth that almost everyone knows someone who was sexually abused-a childhood friend, a college roommate, your child's friend, or even yourself. Parents may feel powerless to help these thousands of kids but every parent can help his or her child and many more by examining his or her own history, thoughts, and feelings, and by developing skills to consciously choose what information they transmit to their children about sexuality. Written by an expert in the field of child abuse, "The Sex-Wise Parent" aims to help parents and caregivers help raise a sexually safe and healthy child, going beyond abuse. Rosenzweig provides strategies and information every parent can use to foster open communication about sexual health and safety with their children, to promote and teach sexual education at every stage of childhood and adolescence, and she will teach parents the language, anatomy, physciology, and stages of psychosexual development in order to better instill sexual health and awareness in children of all ages. Not talking to your child about sex will leave him or her vulnerable to exploitation. This book calls to action parents and caregivers to engage in open and age-appropriate discussions about sex and the real risks of sexual abuse. It is a must for any household with children.
