Sexuality scholars and educators Hancock and Rayne’s (Girl) book helps parents—of children up to age six—understand how to proactively teach their youngsters about sexuality. First-person narratives from parents around the world indicate how sexuality is addressed in their households. The authors show readers how to examine the topic by using a four-perspective model: physical, emotional, cognitive, and social. Each chapter concludes with a list of reflection questions and additional resources, including other books. The guide includes ideas for preventing childhood sexual abuse by teaching boundaries, consent, and safety. There’s also advice on how to get help if a traumatic incident occurs, and gender identity and sexual orientation are explored.
VERDICT A comprehensive guide to answering young children’s questions about sexuality. Perfect for parents who want to tackle sexual health topics during their child’s early years.
