239 indexed pages aabout what kids want to hear from their parents about sex, drugs, separation, divorce, remarriage, injuries, racism, death and violence. KIDS ARE CURIOUS. They wonder about things and often worry about events that they don't understand. Sometimes, they ask questions of their parents; at other times, and for various reasons, they are reluctant to ask. They may sense that the adults will be uncomfortable about answering. When this happens, children may seek answers from their peers and frequently acquire misinformation. Or from their own imaginations they may supply answers that can be quite bizarre. Parents are a child's primary teachers. The infant's education begins at birth. and as he progresses through stages of emotional development he receives many messages from his parents and, later, from other significant adults. In this very important book. Bennett Olshaker hopes to aid parents and surrogate parents in thinking about, knowing abouL and having a better understanding of what we might tell children. both in our words and our behaviour. especially at times of stress or when significant events are taking place in their lives.
