It would be nice to raise a child who has all his sexual marbles in place. And it would be nice to think that this author knows the way to accomplish that. But the advice given here, however cheerfully, is mostly recycled common sense (if father likes to walk around the house naked and mother doesn't, any child who inquires should be told that mother simply doesn't like to). Another sound tidbit--though not an earth-shaker--is don't ever tell a child more than he's asked about. . . he's probably not ready to hear it. Beyond that, this is a superfluous volume, full of horror stories (one about a father who taught his son to masturbate by demonstration) which are of very little use to anyone trying to bring up a normal child.
