Summary

Summary

Believe it or not, most parents still avoid having 'the talk' with their children. Ten Talks offers advice on exactly how to begin and what to say - not just about sex, but about safety, character, peer pressure, ethics, the internet and mixed messages from TV. Based on innovative and proven approaches used in workshops all over America, the talks can be adapted for all kinds of families, and offer immeasurable rewards and help prepare kids for the complex world of relationships, sex and growing up. With b/w illustrations throughout.
