Many children are curious about the differences between boys and girls. Maybe your child has noticed that you don’t have a penis like them, or you’ve caught them closely inspecting their friend’s genitals during play. And you’re unsure about how to satisfy their curiosity and what to teach them about this part of their body.

In How to Talk to Kids About Bodies, you’ll find all the help you will need to have comfortable conversations with your child about their body without taking away their childhood innocence.

This short book is just 38 pages in length, and gets straight to the point by helping you to teach your child the correct names for their private parts (or genitals) in an everyday way.

You will find out how to:

  • Talk to children up to the age of 12 about their private parts with more confidence and less cringe.
