As technology evolves faster than kids grow up, parents are often left scrambling to decide how and when to talk to their kids about sex, and exactly what to say. Many don't understand gender identity, sexting, or internet safety enough to be an authority on it, let alone help their children navigate it.|
Cue Talk Sex Today: What Kids Need to Know and How Adults Can Teach Them, released August 15 by Wood Lake Publishing. Written by Saleema Noon, this important how-to guide is the modern parent's Hail Mary to everything sex-and sexual-health related. The book builds on the work of iconic sexual health educator Meg Hickling, of bestselling Speaking of Sex fame, breathing new life and bringing a modern twist to Hickling's much-respected body of work.

Wow! This book surpassed all my expectations...Saleema has such a gift for delivering material many of us - including myself - find awkward in a humorous, accessible and thoughtful way. Covering everything from the scientific facts to gender identity to internet exposure and so much more. I truly believe this is the only book parents will ever need to educate themselves and their kids on sexual health. - Cea Sunrise Person, bestselling author of North of Normal
This book is teeming with valuable information about sexual health (or body science as the author calls it). The book lays out a general curriculum for appropriate information about sexuality for different ages. It includes sections on kids with special needs, managing the internet, sexualized violence and other important topics. It's an easy read and one that would be helpful for parents, teachers and others who wish to learn how to talk about sex with young people. - Dr. Farah Shroff, Faculty Member, Department of Family Practice and School of Population and Public Health at UBC
