"This book guides parents to gradually expand a child's understanding of life beginning with how the love of family reflects the love of God. Teaching the facts of life fully demands including the spiritual. Caroline does a beautiful job explaining the physical changes that occur during puberty while including the responsibility to be true to God's plan and purpose for our bodies. The life lessons are presented in clear language and will enrich not just the children, but the parents also reading this book as an aid." Patti Maguire Armstrong, author "Courageous, timely and beautifully sensitive. In a time when our children are bombarded by all the wrong messages about their bodies, here is a wonderful guide for parents to talk to their children about Godliness, their bodies and sex." Donna Piscitelli, children's author "A useful guidebook for parents and a resource that's sure to strengthen your family. Discard the dread of "the talk" and embrace the beauty of a faith-based approach. My copy's sure to be dog-eared and passed along " Sarah Reinhard, author of Catholic Family Fun and SnoringScholar.com
