Publisher's Summary

Having "the talk" can sometimes be an awkward experience for both parent and child. Even so, I didn't want to wait until my children's hormones kicked in, and I didn't want to be caught off guard when they had questions, but most of all, I didn't want them growing up with misconceptions concerning sex. I wanted my children to be informed about the facts of life, yet without being too sexually explicit in the process, because some of the facts weren't good such as pornography, diseases, and predators, but these subjects needed to be addressed as well.

As a result, I told them what I have written in Your Special Gift, by using the analogy of a gift, a lock, and a key to define commonly used sexual terms, and to caution them about possible consequences, and to warn them of potential predators. I also told them what God says about this Special Gift, and I used Scripture to define true love.

The simplicity of the gift analogy opens the door of communication between parent and child in an effective, straightforward, and yet sensitive way, so that any question concerning sex can be answered by using this method.

Your Special Gift is a Christian-based guide that is a valuable reference.

Nice analogy. Very short.

I liked the analogy used & may use it, but the book was shorter than expected. I’d like to know how the conversation went between the author & her kids. If they had questions etc.
