Description

This updated and expanded version of the bestselling More Speaking of Sex, continues to deliver no-nonsense facts in a humorous yet scientific manner. With new chapters related to the Internet, and multi-faiths, parents will find the latest and greatest information about sexual health. Meg Hickling gently dispels misconceptions and unhealthy beliefs about sex by telling even more humorous stories from over 25 years of experience working with children, families, teachers, and other professionals.

Hickling touches on the physical, intellectual, emotional, and spiritual aspects of sexuality - a "whole" person approach to sex. She knows that many parents had no information given to them by their parents, their churches, or their schools, when they were growing up, and Hickling hopes this book will provide the knowledge parents need. Hickling provides age-appropriate information, guidelines on how to talk with children at various stages of their development, and examples of how to answer tough questions.

Editorial Reviews

Hickling approaches sex education as 'a body science' - a straightforward way of telling boys and girls how their bodies work which takes away the giggles.

— The Edmonton Journal

A remarkable and inspired teacher, Meg conveys a challenging subject with sensitivity, humor, and warmth. She is a sought-after advisor/consultant voluntarily training dozens in the field.

— YWCA, Women of Distinction

The New Speaking of Sex is recommended reading for all teachers, and should be in every school's professional and parent libraries.
