Item Description...
Drawing on her unique background as both a sexual educator and mother of a child with Down syndrome, author Terri Couwenhoven blends factual information and practical ideas for teaching children with Down syndrome about their bodies, puberty, and sexuality. This book gives parents the confidence to speak comfortably about these sometimes difficult subjects. It also explains why it's so important to begin early in the life of a child to deal with issues such as hygiene, emotional and physical boundaries, privacy, and what makes for healthy relationships.In a friendly conversational style, the author covers relevant issues and concerns for children of all ages, such as:  Labeling & explaining private body parts  Identifying & expressing emotions  Respecting personal space  Teaching self-care & hygiene  Understanding norms of privacy  Understanding gender identity  Showing appropriate levels of affection She also covers later issues that affect teenagers and young adults, including:  Anticipating and understanding puberty  Dealing with periods, bras for girls  Experiencing erections, wet dreams for boys  Relating to the opposite sex  Sharing parental values about sexuality  Explaining sexual relationships  Preventing sexual abuse  Understanding how Down syndrome affects puberty & fertility rates Each chapter provides parents with loads of practical tips, including dozens of anecdotes and sidebars. "Key Messages" outline important points to teach a child about a particular topic, such as expressing feelings or how to problem-solve issues related to relationships. "Teaching Activities" suggest things parents can do to teach concepts by reading specific books, making visual aids, role playing, or using materials and illustrations provided in the book. (The book includes some sexually explicit illustrations for teaching purposes.) "Parental Pauses" invite parents to consider their own values regarding relationships or sexuality so they can decide how they want to discuss the topic with their child.This comprehensive guide has a wealth of authoritative advice and sensitive insight that is invaluable to parents as well as caregivers and professionals.
