Published by Quarto US
RRP $NZ32.99

Dr Jillian Roberts provides critical insight for parents on how to navigate the sexualised digital world to raise kids that are healthy, resilient and strong . . .

Our kids are being exposed to sexual content at a younger and younger age, whether through the Internet, advertisements, or interactions with their peers, writes child psychologist Dr Jillian Roberts in her new book Kids, Sex & Screens.

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, says Dr Roberts.

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 counselling practice with up-to-date psychological science, Dr Roberts gives a full-fledged accounting of our sexualised society. She 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.

  • Dr Jillian Roberts is a renowned child psychologist, author, professor, and mother of three. Considered a go-to child psychology expert for journalists, Dr Roberts’ work has appeared in The New York Times and the Toronto Sun. She is also a regular contributor to Global News and has a parenting blog on Huffington Post Canada. In early 2017, Dr Roberts co-founded FamilySparks to offer families a supportive, resource-rich community to help them navigate our increasingly complicated world.
