With children as young as seven being taught in class that touching their clitoris or penis gives them a nice feeling without warning that such touching can be inappropriate (or even constitute sexual abuse depending on who is doing the touching), it's not only Christian parents who are becoming concerned about what is going on in the classroom under the guise of sex education.

This book, by a UK orthodox Jewish psychiatrist, is just the thing for concerned parents to read and pass to friends or their child's teacher and also get into their local libraries. It exposes, without using any religious language, the dangers of early sexualisation of young children through explicit sex education.

The book gives parents the facts they will need to be able to convince teachers and governors that the effects of sex education in the US are far from positive. It will reach people that more overtly Christian books on this theme will not, and I hightly recommend it for all CMF members who have or work with or care for children.
