Empowering your kids to approach sexuality responsibly can lead to positive outcomes. This book was written to make “the talk” with your kids easier. After listening to the TED Radio Hour segment, “Peggy Orenstein: How Should We Talk To Our Kids About Sex?”, Michael Gene was inspired to speak to his own daughter and to write a book that would help other parents with this difficult task. Big Little Talks can be used as a script to get the “the talk” started or your child can read it themselves. Topics include our bodies, pleasure, consent, safety, and relationships.
Many young people engage in sexual behavior before their brains have developed fully and they understand all of the risks. Having made the mistake of sexual misconduct when he was a teen in high school, Gene knows the painful guilt and regret of these situations firsthand. He wants others to avoid becoming a victim or a perpetrator and enjoy the healthy relationships they deserve. Giving kids accurate information can help them navigate the complexities of becoming sexually active.
