Summary

Summary

Dr. Miriam Stoppard's wise and useful book covers all the typical questions children 2 to 11 years ask, from sex and babies to why we have to die. Different age groups need different approaches -- therefore, each question and answer is given in four stages of maturity (2 to 4, 4 to 6, 6 to 8, and 8 to 11) so that parents and carers can give answers children will understand and respect. Dr. Stoppard also explains the questions behind the questions so that adults can learn to read between the lines, thereby helping build trusting and honest relationships.
