Have Real Conversations With Your Kids About Sex

The old ways of having the "sex talk" just won't cut it anymore. Sadly, the number one place today's young people go to for answers about sex is Google. Meanwhile, kids view nearly 14,000 sexual references a year on television, and 70 percent of teenagers have encountered pornography on the Internet. If we want our children to know the truth about healthy sexuality, we need to create a comfortable climate of continual conversations.

Jonathan McKee will show you how to move beyond the initial awkwardness of this subject into an ongoing communication with your kids about God's amazing gift of sex. He equips you with what you need to talk openly about dating, temptation, porn, and purity, and you will find answers to tough questions and relevant Scripture on sexual issues.

It's normal for kids to be curious about sexuality, and they need to know that their parents are the most reliable source of information. Be the one your kids turn to on this crucial topic.

my review....

If you just aren't sure how to prepare your kids to have a healthy view of sex in our seemingly sex crazed world, then Jonathan McKee's book is just what you've been waiting for! McKee takes a candid look at the issues our children are facing in their childhoods, and quickly dismantles myths parents may believe, such as thinking their children would never even THINK of words like oral sex or masturbation. Rather, McKee shows, from scripture and research, that we need to have honest conversations with our children from a young age. McKee encourages parents that "parents rarely introduce their kids to temptation while trying to tell them the truth". He's not encouraging parents to download too much information onto their children. But a quick look at the media around us, from t.v. shows to magazines to song lyrics, shows that our kids are being exposed to a sex-crazed world and they need to know how to handle it. Our children need to know that sex is a wonderful gift from God, but that our loving Father has put boundaries and limits around that gift. I greatly appreciate that the author bases this book on scripture, teaching parents how to raise subjects like sex before marriage and pornography and masturbation and homosexuality by starting with the Bible. The book is easy to read and laid out in clear, logical chapters that provide a wealth of information for parents who just don't know where to start. McKee isn't afraid to tackle the toughest of questions, and whether parents agree with every single thing he says or not, they will come away from this book empowered to truly become their children's "Go-To" person about sex.

If you would rather have your children come to you with their sex-related questions, instead of stumbling across something on the internet or asking that older teen down the road, then grab a copy of "More than Just The Talk". You will be glad you did. 4.5 out of 5 stars.
