SAN DIEGO, March 16 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — Healthy Chats LLC announces the release of their Spanish language parenting guide, “The Birds and the Bees with Ease! Como, Cuando y Que Decir a Su Hijo de 5 a 9 anos de Edad Acerca del Sexo.” The easy-to-follow book enables parents to discuss these sensitive topics with their young children.
“We published this Spanish edition as a resource for parents for when their youngsters ask questions about babies, sex, and more,” says Healthy Chats founder Dr. Chrystal de Freitas, a pediatrician, health educator, and mother. “By the time children reach puberty, they should already know the basics; where babies come from, and the story of birth and conception. However, I meet many parents at my puberty seminars who still haven’t discussed this with their kids,” notes Dr. de Freitas.
The 44-page book details what is appropriate to discuss at what age; starting at 5 and moving up to ages 6 through 9. “When we start the conversation early, we can postpone noting any details of dangers and pleasures associated with sex,” explains de Freitas. “This isn’t too young an age to initiate the conversation, and, if we parents don’t, a classmate or the media will do it for us! As our children grow, we can continue to add more information before they attend their school’s health education class. Explaining how their bodies work empowers kids and keeps them safe. This knowledge is part of the journey to healthy, responsible adulthood,” adds the doctor, whose guide is also useful for parents who haven’t yet discussed these topics with their puberty-age children.
Topics include: Where Do Babies Come From?; How Do they Get Out?; Sexual Curiosity; Modesty; Touching/Exploring; HIV/AIDS; Puberty; and other important issues.
