Answering Young Children's Questions about Sex.
Intended for use by parents and teachers of preschool age children, this short booklet provides some guidelines to follow when introducing sex education to young children. It discusses issues such as where to begin, how to encourage the child to ask questions about sex, how to handle sex-related problems, child molestation, nudity and the family, parental need for privacy, and how to teach children not to use sexual terms when they are angry. In addition, the booklet provides a little glossary of sexual terms, lists a representative number of children's often-asked questions about genitals, pregnancy/birth, and the new baby, and provides simple and direct answers to those questions.
