The Birds and the Bees with Ease!
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) September 16, 2009
Healthy Chats LLC is pleased to announce that a free, easy-to-follow 44 page e-book, "The Birds and the Bees with Ease!" by Dr. Chrystal de Freitas is now available on their family health education and parenting web site, http://www.healthychats.com..
"We decided to offer the book online, free to parents as a resource for when those questions about babies, sex, and more are posed by their kids," says Dr. de Freitas, Healthy Chats founder and creator of My First Period Kit & DVD, based upon the doctor's mother-daughter seminars. "By the time kids reach puberty, they should already know the basics; where babies come from and the story of birth and conception. However, I often meet many moms at my seminars who have never quite broached the topic with their kids," she adds.
"The Birds and the Bees with Ease!" covers which details are appropriate to relate to a child at what age, starting at 5 years old, moving up to ages 6 through 9. The information is also useful for parents who have not yet discussed these topics with children at the cusp of puberty. "When we start the conversation at the appropriate age of 5 or 6, we can leave out all the details of dangers and pleasures associated with sex," explains Dr. de Freitas. "This is not too early because if we parents don't initiate this conversation, others - like the kid next door or the media - will do it for us. As our children grow, we can continue to add on more information before they get to their health education class at school. Explaining to children how their amazing bodies work empowers them and keeps them safe. This knowledge is all part of the journey to healthy, responsible adulthood."
The e-book's clear-cut chapters tackle topics including: Where Do Babies Come From? and How Do they Get Out?; How are Babies Made?; Sexual Curiosity; Modesty; Touching/Exploring; Foul Language; HIV and AIDS; Puberty; and other vital discussion areas to enable parents to easily have healthy chats with their children.
