Non-fiction: Parenting
A frank, no-nonsense sex education guide for parents by Marja Kihlström, the bestselling author of The Big O: The Scandinavian Guide to Female Pleasure.

If your children aren’t learning about sex from you, then who are they learning from? This much-needed sex education book provides essential guidance on establishing a healthy relationship with sex, giving you the tools you need to talk openly with your children about the real life issues they’re likely to come up against.

Nowadays children are younger than ever when they learn about sex and, in the world of smartphones, they’re expected to navigate the world of sexting and pornography from a young age. In the modern world, teaching children the birds and the bees no longer cuts it.

The Nordics are known for their openness when it comes to both sex education and parenting. In this approachable and informative book, renowned Finnish sexual therapist Marja Kihlström offers up modern psychological and practical advice for parents when it comes to talking about sex with their children: from how to approach conversations about gender and sexual orientation, body image and adolescence, sexual health and pregnancy to advice on navigating the mass of misinformation about sex online.

In addition to the author’s own advice, readers get the chance to gain insight into real life problems experienced by other parents, how sex education has changed over the years, and how adjusting your own attitude can help your children develop a healthy attitude towards sex and sexuality.
