Love this book. Lots of good points and from someone who had a really hard past it showed me some good ways to have the important conversations.

From the moment I heard the author speak at a training I knew I had to get a copy of her book. I work with ages 5-12 and it has a bunch of great ways to talk to kids ranging from sexuality, special needs and divorce. A must read for parents and childcare workers
