Thoughts on the books I've read.

Everything You Never Wanted Your Kids to Know About Sex (But Were Afraid They'd Ask): The Secrets to Surviving Your Child's Sexual Development from Birth to the Teens - Justin Richardson, Mark A. Schuster I only read the beginning chapters of this book, the part that pertains to children from birth to age 4. But from what I read, I can say that it gives a frank discussion of how to answer questions from small children, how much detail you can give (and what you can maybe skip), and right and wrong ways to approach different things you might "happen upon". I felt like the authors were aware that there are lots of ways parents can approach this topic and that they were respectful of all of them. I still don't know how I'll react if and when my child asks me where babies come from ("did she eat the baby? how did it get in her belly?"), but I feel like I have an idea of how I might go about explaining things in a developmentally appropriate way.
