How to have "the talk" with your daughter!!!!

We all know that having “the talk” with your daughter can be awkward, but yet it is essential to your daughter's health and confidence! We recently received a great new book to help parents out with this touchy subject! Janine Sherman, certified Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner, and award-winning co-author of “Start Talking: A Girl’s Guide for You and Your Mom about Health, Sex or Whatever” (Bayou Publishing, ISBN-13: 978-1-886298-31-6, $14.95) delivers practical “talking tips” in this guide.
This book covers:
-How to talk to your daughter about her period
-What your daughter needs to know about safe sex
-The frank truth about STD's and pregnancy
-Body angst, body confidence, and how to model a strong body image
According to teen health expert and OB/GYN nurse practitioner, Janine Sherman, she says the best time to talk to your teen daughter about sex and her body is around the age of 8 or 9.
Between the Internet, television, and grocery aisle tabloid magazines, Sherman says that tweens’ and teens' primary sources of information about the female body is distorted at best, and potentially harmful at worst.

Start Talking is a great resource that all parents with daughters should own. The Q&A format is easy to read. This book would also be great for mothers and daughters that struggle to effectively communicate and share feelings and concerns related to important issues. Start Talking offers practical, clear guidance and help to bridge the communication gap between mothers and daughters. I recommend this book for all parents!
