This review might seem like it comes from left field for this blog... but it doesn't. My writing is about family, and family starts... well, family started with God, who created Adam, and then created Eve, and vive la difference and the rest is history.
Except to our children who need to be taught about Adam and Even and Birds and Bees and the like. A subject which has reduced generations of parents, at least modern parents, to quivering imbecility.
The book "Before I was born" is an excellent help (not an answer, a help) to parents struggling with this subject. And one of the ways it will help, if you will take its advice (and my advice) is that it says to start the talk... early. Like, seriously early before there is even the hint of embarassement (by the kids, can't help you) on the subject. This book helps you walk through the issue and begin the conversation.
Let's remember that God created Adam, God created Eve, and God created... what Adam and Eve did together to multiply and replenish the Earth.
And in today's age our children desperately need an antidote to what the world will try to teach them. So start this book, and the conversation, early. Repeat every year. And by the time your kids find it embarassing, they will practicaly have the book memorized, and will be able to participate much more naturally in the conversation.
