Becoming Your Kids' Go-To Person About Sex

Jonathan McKee has a new book out called "Becoming Your Kids' Go-To Person About Sex More Than Just the Talk".  I know - a scary and daunting thought!  But this is a great book.  McKee has done a fantastic job tackling a tough subject with humor and practical tips for parents.

From the publisher:  "In a sex-saturated culture where kids are exposed to nearly 14,000 sexual references per year on television, and 70 percent of teenagers have encountered pornography on the Internet, parents can't rely on the traditional one-time "sex talk" that their own parents muddled through. Kids need to know that it's natural to be curious about sex and that their parents are the most reliable source of information. Otherwise, their friends and smartphones will be more than willing to give answers that are likely to lead them down the path to sin and heartache. Jonathan McKee shows parents how to move beyond the initial awkwardness of this subject into an ongoing conversation with their kids about God's amazing gift of sex. He equips them to engage in open conversations about dating, temptation, porn, and purity. Parents will find answers to the tough questions most people avoid and relevant Scripture regarding sexual issues. When parents provide the honest answers their kids are longing for, they can become the ones their kids turn to with their questions about this critical topic."

This book is relevant and important for parents to read.  It will empower and equip parents to start dealing with issues their children are facing.  It will inspire parents to take action and initiate conversations.  It will help remove some of the awkwardness and fear that parents are bound to fear when the sex subject comes up.

I recommend this book to any parent with children ages 10+, and any youth worker/educator that has the opportunity to speak into the lives of children and teens.

I received this book as a gift from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
