Raising Sexually Whole And Holy Kids
It's one of the most daunting prospects parents face. Communicating the
richness of Catholic teaching on sexuality in a faithful and effective way can
be an overwhelming responsibility. But does it have to be so?
In this thoroughly revised re-release of Beyond the Birds and the Bees,
popular marriage and family counselor Gregory Popcak empowers parents with the
tools needed to move well beyond "The Talk" by offering a comprehensive guide to
raising sexually whole and holy children. Using the riches of Blessed John Paul
II's Theology of the Body, Dr. Popcak helps you safely navigate your children
from infancy through the teenage years and beyond.
Part One of Beyond the Birds and the Bees cultivates your personal
understanding of the Catholic vision of sexuality, allowing it to color your
relationships, conversations, and interactions with your children.
Part Two provides practical step-by-step guides, including goals and
concerns, for each stage of childhood - from infant to teenager.
A bonus chapter offers help with the more sensitive topics.
This book answers the questions you may have including:
- What lessons must my children learn at each stage to
develop a healthy Christian sexuality?
- How can I have age-appropriate conversations about
sensitive issues with my children?
- How can I teach my children what it takes to be a
true Catholic man or woman?
