Book Review: Under Our Clothes: Our First Talk About Our Bodies by Dr Jillian Roberts helps parents to have open and honest conversations with kids about bodies.
A short overview of this book
Under Our Clothes: Our First Talk About Our Bodies by Dr Jillian Roberts is a great resource for helping parents to talk about bodies, body safety and body image. It also covers modesty, privacy, boundaries, when it’s okay for someone to look at your private parts, what to do when worried, consent, body image, body shaming, self-esteem, positive thinking, and how to be a good friend.
I really like this book, but I was surprised that there was no discussion about penises and vulvas. It does mention that there are parts of our body that are private, but that’s all. So feel free to ask your child what parts these might be!
All in all, though, I think it’s a great resource and will help to start many important conversations!
