Description

Kids, Sex & Screens is Dr. Jillian Roberts' primer for parents that know they need to speak with their children about sexualized media, but don't know where to start.

Our kids are being exposed to sexual content at a younger and younger age, whether through the Internet, advertisements, or interactions with their peers. When children are exposed to this sexual information without context, or images of a graphic nature, they can experience lasting psychological effects with deep-seated ramifications. 

Kids, Sex & Screens explains in easy-to-understand language what exactly the psychological effects of that exposure can look like, and offers parents the tools and expert advice on how to handle it appropriately. Weaving eye-opening accounts from her own counseling practice with up-to-date psychological science, Dr. Jillian Roberts gives a full-fledged accounting of our sexualized society. Dr. Roberts pairs this explanation with advice and concrete actions that parents of both girls and boys desperately need. 

Writing with warmth and authority, Dr. Roberts has an important message for parents: you can mitigate the risks your child faces navigating a sensational and sometimes disturbing world so that they grow up healthy and strong. Using her "7-Point Compass" as a navigational tool, Kids, Sex & Screens helps parents make sure their sons and daughters mature in a manner that is age-appropriate in a "mature content" world.
