    Description
    "Parenting in the Age of Sexposure approaches the thorny issue of sex and sexuality in the lives of children, at a time when the media and the Internet bombard kids with countless sexualizing, explicit messages - 'Thin is good' , 'Having sex is "in"', 'Sex has nothing to do with commitment'. How do parents bring up children when the media overwhelmingly portrays girls and women as sexual objects, encourages boys to form superficial relationships, and reinforces gender biases? How do they secure their kids' emotional ellbeing, while admitting that sexuality is an integral part of the human experience? Equally, how do they deal with the ugly realities of sexual violence and abuse, and safeguard their children's interests? Parenting in the Age of Sexposure attempts to address these questions and offer ideas for conscious parenting."

    A must read for parents!

    I have a pre-teen child and already concerned about how to deal with raising her in today’s technology-driven environment! In this context, our times were easier. Nowadays, a child is exposed to variety of media - TV, phone, ipad, laptop, computer, etc. Even the school assignments are more of research online. Therefore, it becomes so tough to deal with and handle your child in this scenario. One tends to ask friends, relatives, or search hours online for information, which at times leaves you...

    Every parent should read this

    My rating is 4.5

Situations like discouraging one's child from touching his/genitals, preventing them from using abusive words etc are also not unheard of.

    The book has proved to be a very good guide to work with today's reality of parenting. I haven't read it through at a single sitting, but pick parts and read as i deal with various issues. Like the easy reading style and the minimal Jargon. Thank for a very very ...
