Book Review

A short overview of this book

Rethinking Sex Ed: The Wisdom of Religion… Without the Crazy by Dr Doug Hammack breaks down capital ‘R’ Religion, discussing the history of the “church” and how it has dealt with sex (“don’t do it outside of marriage”) and how that is failing our young people today. It is a helpful guidebook for parents trying to figure out how to talk to their kids about sex.

Now, I don’t know the history of religion, and I don’t know the current political climate in regards to religion in the USA. But I do have a lot of American LDS parents and parents with Christian values in my Facebook group. And I see how they struggle with balancing shame-free conversations with their faith-based values.

So I agreed to look at this book, as I am always on the lookout for resources that will help faith-based parents with open and honest conversations with their kids about sex.

And I think that this book, can definitely help them with that!

What I really like about this book, is the shame-free, open, honest and non-judgemental approach to takes towards sexuality.  It’s based on the premise that if we can have open and honest conversations with our kids about sexuality, then we can expect our kids to make smart choices.

I think it would be a useful tool for any parent, who is especially after some guidance on how to chat to their child about love and relationships. 

At the end of the book, you’ll find practical advice on how to talk to your child/teen about sex, as well as how to tackle conversations about masturbation, pornography and when to have sex. 

All in all, I think it is a great resource for parents.
