5.0 out of 5 stars Reflecting a true though grim reality, 30 Nov 2011
This review is from: Where Has My Little Girl Gone? (Paperback)
I have just finished this book and can't help but be impressed by how the Author has got it so right!

As a Professional Relationship and Sex Education Facilitator and Trainer of Children, Teenagers, Parents and Professionals I see day by day the effects that the cocktail of the net, pornography and consumerism is having on our Children. The majority of Parents and Carers are blissfully unaware ~ many falsely priding themselves in that they know nothing of the net and computers! I love Tanith's analogy that we are not protecting our children now in the way that in Victorian times it was considered ok to send them down the mines and up chimneys.

I have delivered Education for Relationships and Sex since pre-net times, questions we were asked then were so different and yet ironically so many are the same. There is so much confusion out there for girls (and boys), this book helps Parents and Carers begin to understand how so different it is for today's teenagers and how important it is to have and keep those conversations going. In class those who are able to talk to their Parents and Carers about sex are momentarily teased but then obviously envied, the Author is right again when she says that children pick up your body language so perceptively. Where Parents have shown embarrassment or any negative responses even unknowingly this seems to be the red light and children won't risk asking again.

Many Parents feel completely unprepared to discuss many things of a sexual nature with their children, I like the ways this book gives background, facts, slots it into a familiar context and then offers practical tips. I have a recommended reading list for the Parents I work with, this is definitely going on the list! 10/10

PS Does anyone know of an equivalent one for boys?
