Sex Education in Child Development is a book that deals with a controversial subject but an important one that cannot be neglected or ignored. With information and knowledge having crossed all boundaries, it is highly imperative that a growing child be given the correct information about his or her sexuality and at the right time. It is immaterial whether this is done by the teacher or the parent, but it is important that whoever does it, does so in the correct manner.
This book deals with the subject in such a way to make it easy for the teacher or parent to know what to tell a growing child and when. How to make him or her 'knowledgable' about his moods, his emotions and his body. And how to ensure that the child does not stray into the realm of half-baked knowledge garnered from friends, pornographic books and films and from other dubious sources.
The chapters include Why Sex Education; Responsibility for Sex Education; Right Timing of Sex Education; Explaining Birth to Children; What is Sex Education; Sex Education Methods; Sex: Telling Children; The Questioning Child; Goals of Sex Education; Growing Up; The Ambit of Sex Education; The Influence of Home in Sex Education; Society’s Role in Sex Education; Associating Parents in Decision-Making; Sex Instruction in Schools
In this context, this book is ideal for teachers, parents, researchers and those connected with the upbringing of children in any capacity.
