Sex Education

A Parent's Guide

When should I start discussing sex and relationships with my child? What are age appropriate topics to talk about? How do I overcome my embarrassment? Sex is a fact of life: without it, none of us would be here. However, when it comes to discussing sex and relationships with teens, parents often clam up and avoid the issues. This easy-to-read guide will take you through every aspect of sex education, from how and when to start talking to your child about sex, through to teenage pregnancy, safe sex and the emotional aspects of sexual relationships. There are hints and tips on encouraging your child to talk to you, advice on how to deal with tricky topics, plus invaluable information about STIs, contraception and how to tackle cyber bullying and peer pressure. Sex Education: A Parent's Guide is divided into ten chapters, each covering an important aspect of sex education, as well as advice for parents and guardians, checklists and discussion points. Use the guide as an ongoing resource for sex education and a handy reference point for information.
