Parents' Responsibility.
Southard, Helen
This pamphlet is written for parents of young children of preschool and early school age. Chapter One is concerned with sex education and includes discussion on topics such as: (1) the importance of sex education from infancy on; and (2) the experiences which contribute to sex education. Chapter Two gives help to parents on the following topics: (1) sources of information; (2) the father's role; (3) how to use basic information; and (4) parents feeling right about themselves and their children. Some aspects of child growth and development are presented in Chapter Three. The next chapter discusses the setting for talking about sex: (1) encourage two-way talk; (2) sex questions come when communication lines are open; and (3) parents do not need to be the perfect teacher. Chapter Five lists suggestions for handling some common questions and situations. This chapter is divided into two parts. The first part is on questions children ask, including those on birth, and the father's part. The second part is on parents questions, including vocabulary, differences between girls and boys, and sex play. A short bibliography is given. (KJ)
