How to Talk to Your Muslim Child About Sex
Paperback, 146 pages
Our children are growing up in a hypersexualized world. It is a subject that most Muslim parents find difficult and awkward to discuss with their children. This book will lessen that discomfort and build your confidence to tackle this sensitive subject. Firoza Osman outlines how an Islamic foundation when talking to your children about sexual matters from preschool (proper vocabulary, boundaries) to adolescence can help shape a healthy Islamic identity and view of sexuality.
How to Talk to Your Muslim Child about Sex offers practical suggestions to address:
• Building an Islamic understanding of sex and sexuality
• The challenges of raising children in a digital age
• Building communication and connection with your children so they come to you for information
• How and when to explain puberty, physical intimacy, dating and healthy relationships, consent, gender issues, pornography.
