The Talk

thetalk.jpgLike it or not, talking the talk is necessary to keep your kids safe in our increasingly complex world. Today, PPLM Parent Education Program Manager Amy Cody recommends Dr. Sharon Maxwell’s The Talk: What Your Kids Need to Hear from You About Sex as a helpful new resource to ready you for these conversations. Read on for Amy's review, as well as to learn how to be one of five winners to receive a copy of The Talk!
“A practicing clinical psychologist, sex education expert, and mother, Dr. Sharon Maxwell – author of The Talk: What Your Kids Need to Hear from You About Sex – powerfully explains the need for better communication between parents and children regarding sex and sexuality. Maxwell helps parents define their own values about sex, and shows parents how to make the connection between values and behavior. She addresses the social power that comes from looking sexy and helps teens accept personal responsibility to use that power appropriately. In addition, Maxwell tackles the potential dangers of the Internet and offers family guidelines for safe use.

Dr. Maxwell is based in Massachusetts, where she has worked extensively with adolescents and families in the public and private sectors, in particular around helping parents and educators counteract the impact of the media on kids’ values and behavior, and how to talk to kids about sexual health issues.”
