I was excited to get my hands on a copy of this new book, because quite honestly this is a subject we need to be talking about in my home much more than we are! So I was hoping it would be a book that would help us do a better job!
More than Just the Talk is a book for parents, and it will lead you through subject by subject to equip you for talks with your young people. This is not a book I would just hand to my kids as some of the discussion may be beyond the details they need at that time. However I loved Jonathan McKee’s approach, and that he remained very biblical in his addressing of touchy topics.
Chapters in this book include
Voice – addressing peer pressure
The Quiet Voices – hiding issues or not asking questions
Opening Doorway of communication
How Far – answering the typical “how far can I go question”
The Lure of Porn
and three more ….
I felt that this book dealt very directly with some touchy topics and not only offered insight into what the youth of today are facing but also strategies for parents to help our kids navigate this tough season of life. This book is a wonderful resource for anyone with kids in the throws of puberty!!
NOTE : I was offered a copy of More than just The Talk in exchange for an honest review by Bethany House.
