Oct 05, Laura rated it it was amazing. I actually enjoyed reading this book. I expected it to be informative. But she's so encouraging. She really upped my confidence for being able to raise sexually informed .
I appreciate that she acknowledges that these talks can be incredibly uncomfortable for the parent. She doesn't make me feel like a loser for not looking forward to any of it. But, she sells it so well. We want to make sure our kids feel like they can talk to us about this stuff.
So we can't shut down these conversations o I actually enjoyed reading this book.

From diapers to dating : a parent's guide to raising sexually healthy children - from infancy to middle school
I found it super helpful, and it'll be my go-to reference for this topic. The topic can be so touchy and have so many moments of, "Omg, what am I supposed to do?!
I feel much more confident with the guidance from this book. The only criticism that I have is that it ends at age 12 rather Excellent, comprehensive, educated, and well-researched resource for dealing with teaching your child about sex and sexuality. The only criticism that I have is that it ends at age 12 rather than through high school, which seems premature. Would highly recommend as a must-read for parents.
Jun 02, Becky Odum rated it liked it. This book had a lot of great info and gave some solid advice on how to talk about sex to children of all ages; however, it lacks a lot of information that is crucial to sexuality in Jul 06, Laura Riley-chiabotti rated it liked it.
Good advice, but needs updating. With internet accessing phones in every teens hands. What they watch on TV in their bedrooms is the least of our worries. Oct 03, Sarah rated it it was amazing Shelves: parentingnon-fiction.
From diapers to dating: a parent's guide to raising sexually healthy children
I loved this book. It was so helpful. Something I loved about the book was how neutral the author was in presenting the information so parents could implement the practices that works for their family values. After reading this book, I am no longer nervous or embarrassed to talk about sexual issues with my children. Something this book taught me is how sexuality is something that needs to be addressed often, not just a one-time "big talk. Sexuality is a huge part of growing up, and I would recommend this book to anyone that has children.
This book covers sexuality from birth yep, birth to the teen years. I wish I had this book when I gave birth to my first .
I would have taken a different approach to sexuality, but it is never too late! Jun 04, Ethan rated it it was amazing.
A very earnest, wide ranging, and non-judgmental primer on a hugely important subject. The author does a fine job of presenting concise information on what could be an overwhelming variety of subjects.

I would consider this book a good primer for the ongoing conversation that parents must have with their children on this topic. No one book can cover every aspect of diaper sexuality, and the author provides lots of resources, both online and other books, to keep the conversation going.
Sep 10, Keri Grant rated it really liked it. Debra Haffner datings an invitational approach to helping parents open the lines of communication around sexuality, and keep them open. Recognizing sexuality encompasses more than sex, she addresses the emotional, physical, and social aspects of sexual knowledge, beliefs, attitudes, values, and behaviors. Jul 21, Sarah Jane rated it really liked it.
Great book with excellent information, but could use some updating. Definitely still relevant though. From author is great at giving the information in a way that allows you to assess your own values and cater to them, without watering down the message on potentially controversial material.

So helpful! I really feel like it will help me be the parent my children need. And the resource list at the end is amazing. Oct 29, Jill Urie rated it it was amazing Shelves: family-parenting And this was a great book with lots of good information and discussion points! Feb 20, Stephanie Suryana rated it it was amazing. A really respectful and helpful read about becoming more aware of values about sexuality and gender roles and how to be aware of these values when raising children. An interesting overview of how to consistently, accurately introduce sexuality to your kids, while gaining their trust, and encouraging them to talk to you about sexuality.
I was nervous at first when I saw that she's a minister, thought the book might be too religious, but as a Unitarian minister AND a mother of 2 kids, she did a great job of being impartial and open to all perspectives and values.
