I don't know about you... but figuring out how to educate my children about sex in a Godly way was intimidating the crud out of me!!! As Christian parents Russ and I want our children to learn about sex in context of what we believe.
We believe that God made sex a beautiful gift to be shared only in a marriage relationship. We also want sex to be an open and comfortable topic in our home. Sex is a tremendous blessing and we don't want our kids to feel weird about it or be afraid to talk about it. We want them learning about sex from US and not Hollywood's demented version or from friends who don't know anything either.
We also believe that adoption is something God values so highly that He chose us through spiritual adoption and chose adoption for His own son Jesus.
How in the WORLD was I gonna find a book to help me explain ALL that??? WELL I DID!!! This book is precious and amazing. It covers creation, God's plan for love and marriage, God's plan for sex AND God's plan for adoption!!! ARE YOU KIDDING ME??? It's AWESOME!
It has two sets of writing. The big words are written for younger children and give more basic information. The little words go into more specifics. This book is amazing! My children love it. Kaitlyn (5 1/2) and I have gone through the portion with the large print words. Zoe (10) and I have gone through all the info. They were both very comfortable with the way the info was presented and it has helped me feel more equipped to handle the topic well. Anyway... I thought I should pass it along since I love it so much. Here are the links to Amazon for this book and some others that I ordered. I am using them all and like them.
This one I got for Zoe. It goes through all aspects of personal care for young girls entering puberty. It is terrific. Very glad I got it for her.
I have read this to Zoe and Kaitlyn. I think it's a great book as well. It presents the information in a different but great way. I find it helpful to have both books.
I actually didn't order this book but have heard it's great. It's made for younger children. I think like 3-5yrs old... not sure.
I ordered this book to use in the near future with Zoe. It addresses many questions she may have about sex from a biblical perspective. I have looked at it. In talking to her she still is very unaware of many of the issues addressed so we won't go into it yet. We'll address things as we go. It's handy to have it here though. I'll keep all these books close at hand and make sure I keep sex an open and comfortable topic with my girls.
GOOD LUCK talking about S-E-X with your kids!!!! Hope this helps. :0) Angel
