Living with Sexuality Issues addresses parents’ concerns about teenage sexuality. What is healthy sexual development? What are the stages of sexual development that children go through in adolescence? How can parents help teenagers deal with the sexual images that confront them every day in the media? How do you tell your child to say “No” to sex? Living with Sexuality Issues also discusses in a frank and straightforward manner the issue of child sexual abuse, pornography and sex addiction, as well as sexual disorders. It gives all the information that parents, caregivers, teachers and anyone who deals with children and adolescents should know. Revised and updated, Living with Sexuality Issues is part of a series of handbooks on mental health in children written by mental health professionals from the Child Guidance Clinic.
