These two experts have crafted the essential guide to managing the vast array of challenges involving kids and sex. Simultaneously wise and funny, this highly accessible book will help parents safely through what might otherwise seem like a thicket of anxiety and confusion. A must-read for every thoughtful and caring parent." --William Pollack, author of Real Boys and codirector of the Center for Men at McLean Hospital, Harvard Medical Center "A comprehensive and factual resource on a very delicate subject presented in a humorous and entertaining style.
