These will impact her behavior. Just as the subtitle of the book states, Dr. But there she was at 18, infected with an incurable genital virus. Nikki Chamberlain It would be easy to despair in the face of this information. They should be given every assurance that their confidences will be respected. Grossman earned her medical degree from New York University, did an internship in pediatrics at Beth Israel Hospital in New York City, and completed a residency in psychiatry followed by a fellowship in child and adolescent psychiatry at North Shore Hospital — Cornell University Medical College. Grossman interviewed on the radio.
Say what you like about abstinence education Bristol Palin would be the first to tell you it doesn't work , but when you bash Planned Parenthood on page 4, you've pretty much lost all credibility with me. Make sure that your daughter is certain about your values and expectations. An example of this is All About Sex. I have a niece born out of wedlock and it is hard to know how to answer questions about Mummies and Daddies not living together in a clear but grace filled way. This is an alert that all parents must read, and an antidote that our young people can use against those so-called experts who would indoctrinate them. Planned Parenthood missed an opportunity to educate this mom about what is now known about parenting styles.
Like I said earlier, in the interest of decency and the civil society to which this fine center is dedicated, I will not describe these to you. Just the way you want it to be. I did not like this book. Modern sex education is recklessly endangering teens, and ruining their futures. It happens one child at a time, and it goes on right under your nose. In her shocking exposé, You're Teaching My Child What? This was a first for me. This ought to make us really angry.
I found the section on the T -zone to be extremely helpful. Miriam Grossman rips back the curtain on sex education today, exposing a sordid truth. If you are looking for a soapbox to promote your own views, create your own website or blog site. This bold and brilliant physician has done the nation and its children a great service.

Instead of teaching our children the facts of life, sex educators are lying to them, igring medical fact in favor of politicized, and dangerous, propaganda that could ruin your child's life forever. Yes, it isn't just sex outside of marriage that wreaks havoc on girls. Remember: This group promises to educate parents about how to protect the health of loved ones with a comprehensive and commonsense approach. One in four American girls now has a sexually transmitted disease. Its goal is to change society. The author objects to teen sex from both a moral and a medical perspective, but writes the book on the biological aspects, offering profound evidence to support her claims. The only vice according to the sex ed lobby is the narrow and restrictive values of parents and church groups.
No child in the United States is truly exempt from this teaching. Male and female are culturally assigned? She used to worry about mid-terms or her next swimming competition; now she was concerned about her abnormal pap smear. Felt like the entire book was telling me all the awful stuff that schools and the internet teach your kids about sex and all these people have tried to change it and nothing can be done, so sorry. Indeed, it is the detail that really makes for depressing reading. Still well worth the read for any parent of children or student of our current societal issues. But gender identity disorder is about Robert becoming Roberta, or the other way around. Recent studies overwhelmingly confirm that the impact of parents is profound.
I don't like this book. The text is 188 pages with 48 pages of footnotes in much smaller font than the text. In the introduction, I began to verify each footnote sited. Conclusion I was told in a recent interview that I must be exaggerating: that it must be hyperbole when I say sex education is madness, that it teaches untruths and that it exposes our kids to smut. It was introduced in the House. This is nothing less than a war, and it has been declared on our children. All this tsunami of sex ed has done is compound the problems, not reduce them.

This is a book that all parents should re I found this book particularly helpful when dealing with the administration at my teen daughter's school over their sex education in the classroom. This is a book that all parents should read and teens approaching the age of making decisions about their body and sexual health should be encouraged to read it. The best place to start the battle though, is prayer. She deliberately avoids making any argument from a scriptural or religious authority precisely for the reason that opponents of the sort of moral and cultural standards that she advocates do not recognize that authority. Duplicity is one: promising one thing and doing another.
When I graduated from medical school, I took an oath. If you are happy to abide by these rules, then by all means, send in your comments. Indeed, it is killing our kids. They are worried about getting teased or something. If you think sex education is still about the birds and the bees, think again. These groups are not so much interested in science or medicine, safety or protection, as they are in pushing their sexual libertarian agendas. I think every parent should be aware of the scientific facts in this book to balance what is in a sex ed curriculum.
