Summary: It can be hard to know how best to talk with young kids about topics like sperm donors, adoption, or why some kids have 2 dads, some have 1, and some have none! Many of us believe that it's better to be open about this stuff right from the beginning, rather than having the child "find out" as a teen or adult. How to begin? Try this book! In a simple, straightforward manner, The Flexible Facts of Life combines information with stories to create a terrific resource for young kids, and is appropriate for kids aged 2-8. This book offers some unique features... 1. Focus on storytelling On a hand-painted rainbow of pages, readers are introduced to children with diverse family structures through simple stories about daily life. Young readers can easily relate to topics like sand castles, halloween costumes, and making breakfast! 2. Visual representations Gives kids an illustrated, age-appropriate understanding of concepts like sperm/egg donation, surrogacy, adoption, divorce, fostering, etc. 3. Gender-neutral discussion of biology For example, "Some bodies make teeny tiny sperm, and some bodies make teeny tiny eggs..." Early childhood is the perfect time to help kids to understand and celebrate their own origins. It's also a great time to teach kids to be respectful of other families with diverse structures. Enjoy reading The Flexible Facts of Life with the children in your life!

  2. I never thought I'd be writing this message but after 4.5 years of and nearly lost my marriage due to not be able to have a child, severe endometriosis and scanning, I was told that IVF was the only option. This was something we could not afford and had almost given up hope of becoming parents. A friend of mine recommended native doctor iya basira to me and persuaded me to contact her, she did a spiritual breakthrough for me to make me get pregnant, within 3 weeks I was pregnant (naturally!!!) and gave birth to our son in april. I am writing this message for those women who are at the stage I was at.depressed with no light at the end of the tunnel. give iya basira a try to help you solve your problem, and hopefully you'll have the same success that I have had. Here is her email address nativeiyabasira@yahoo.com . wish you all happiness in your marriage.
