Blog Tour - Teaching Children About Sex Using the Temple as Your Guide



 About the book: It’s time for the talk. Teach your children the truth about sexual intimacy in a world of shifting values and ideas. With expert advice and age-appropriate wording, you learn how to use the temple as a beautiful analogy to discuss with your kids the sacred subject of sex. Timely and clear, this book is a must-read for parents, teachers, and leaders.

My review: I have to admit that I really enjoyed reading this one. This book is laid out very well. I liked how the book is divided into age ranges with several sections geared directly to the age ranges. I also liked that for every one of the age ranges there is a question and answer section that contains some of the most common questions that kids in those ranges would ask. This book is very informative, I learned quite a lot myself from reading it. I liked how Cherri Brooks talks about what happens when you don't teach your kids about sex yourself. I remember being a teenager myself and having my mom try to talk about this subject, I'm sure she was as embarrassed as I was, but I left that talk not really understanding exactly what she was trying to say, and just plain confused. I wish that I had been able to read this book earlier so that our teenager would benefit from the advice shared, but I'll just have to do the best I can with what time I have left with her. If you are a parent, make sure to read this great book.

I was sent an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
