More Than Just the Talk: Becoming Your Kids' Go-To Person About Sex by Jonathan McKee
The Talk. It has caused many parents to become dumb in their speech. What do I say? How do I say it? Are our kids even ready for this type of talk? In his book, More That Just the Talk, Jonathan McKee gives some practical, and wise advice on how to have "the talk."
