I did not want to miss a word.. I thought this book covered the basics and I did get a couple of good suggestions. Would recommend this as a beginner book for parents on how to start talking about sex with their children. I think this is a great guide for parents. Don't wait until your kids are teens. Read by the authors. Everything you needed is there. Need minimum twenty words for a review.
Nothing unique about this book. It offers some helpful reminders of keeping an ongoing conversation about sex and sexual relations. However, it's difficult to get past their fundamentalist Christian worldview of marriage and human sexual relations. I'm not sure why the publisher doesn't acknowledge this fundamentalist approach to marriage in its own description of the book. The book offers some good advice on initiating conversations with youth about a difficult subject, once you get past the theology. Not worth the price of admission.

Jun 15, Jennifer rated it really liked it. Hard for me to believe that it's already time for me to be reading this book. But questions are being asked! Found the book to be helpful as it told you exactly what to say to your kids specific questions. Not being a boy, it also helped me understand what will be happening and when to my boys. I also liked the author's philosophy that it's important to establish a means of constant communication with your kids versus having the "one time talk". The whole idea of using items in your kitchen to Hard for me to believe that it's already time for me to be reading this book.
Overall, helpful book that I would recommend to any parent who is not looking forward to discussing this topic with their children. Mar 01, Jamie Pennington rated it really liked it Shelves: Yes I have children at that age now. Lot of parallels with the Parenting with Love and Logic book. Feb 14, Teela Hudak rated it liked it. The authors do a good job of using stories to engage their readers on the topic and make it less intimidating.
It encourages the reader to laugh and reducing discomfort and embarrassment that many people feel when they think about talking about sex with their kids. The book moves through the content in a logical and well thought out manner. The author address many different aspects of puberty and awkward conversations that can arise at different developmental stages. The authors do an excellent job about providing some guidance on how to handle these situations. They also give some practice advice on ways to react that would make the situation more uncomfortable.
The focus is more on the emotional reactions of the children and where they are in their developmental stages more than the physical aspects of puberty.
A Chicken's Guide to Talking Turkey with Your Kids about Sex : Kathy Flores Bell :
The authors do not go into depth about the mechanics of sex and instead draw attention to some of the other practical challenges young people face and how parents can help their children navigate these areas. The book approaches the subject from a Christian based, sex positive angle which they do quite well. For anyone who is not Christian, the book still offers a lot of valuable information without too many spiritual references or pushing of beliefs. It is a worth while read.
The book could have been a more valuable asset if they authors had chosen to expand the focus to include more detail on developmental physical changes but as a short reference guide they do cover their chosen material well. The authors could do a better job at identifying what voice is being used during telling some of the stories.
Throughout the book, the authors interchangeably add their information. The information flows together naturally but when they include their personal stories, it can sometimes be confusing as to who's story, and who's speaking, to be clear. The authors try to mitigate this by indicating the speaker in brackets but this is not always effective and in some spots, doesn't appear until much later into the story.
As the authors have different genders and different families, this adds an unnecesary element of confusion to some parts of the book. This book is a far cry from a comprehensive discussion on how to talk about sex with your kids but it does inlcude some elements not covered in other literature. I would recommend this book as part of a number I would recommend to parents.
Jan 28, Don rated it it was amazing. It talks about relationships and feelings your child may be feeling.

Oct 26, S. Definitely I booked it warrant reading again in a few years. Amusing faith based approach that is also based in science. Jun 25, Jamie rated it liked it Shelves: I absolutely loved this book. With a young boy smart beyond his years, I figured I'd better prep for questions. I've always believed that parents should be open and honest with their kids, and not be uncomfortable about anything they really need answers to.
Bell have not only given great guidance on how to approach sex education with your child, but with the same effort and comfort as you would teach your child manners, or that stealing is wrong. Another great bonus it the hygie I absolutely loved this book. Another great bonus it the hygiene section. Growing up in a house of girls, this is a great resource for me to know what to expect with a boy!
Aug 11, Tracey rated it it was amazing. So far the begining is an overview of what to expect, remembering your teenage yrs, comparing. I like the christian perspective. I like the 1st lesson of focus on above the head before tackling below the belt. I know sex, drugs, peer pressure etc. Feb 17, Shannon rated it it was amazing.
It has taken me over a year to finish this book but it was well worth it. Very informative and helpful in the navigation of this thing called puberty. I had no at-home instruction or "talks" when I was growing up so I was completely oblivious as to how to proceed. Straightforward information and helpful hints in dealing with a topic that should be as easy as dealing with a scraped knee; if only it was that easy Nov 25, Erik rated it liked it. Just what I have come to expect of Leman: Bell fit right in well. I need to start early and often to develop a rapport with the kids that is open and honest so I am there when it counts, even if I do not know exactly what to say.
Oct 31, Meghan rated it it was amazing. This was recommended to me by a friend, and I'm glad I checked it out. Especially helpful to me were the ideas of talking about "head up" changes i.
Very factual and gradual, the book makes a good case for being upfront and making these conversations a priority. Sep 12, C. The theory is good, the practical application felt dated and forced.

In an attempt to promote "natural" conversations, the authors took it to the extreme - down to object lessons to explain body parts. I'm all for talking with your kids, but I didn't walk way with much from this book. Jun 02, Mandynewman rated it it was amazing. This turned out to be a great book for me as a parent who received NO sex education from my parents.
