MUST WE TAKE THE FRONT?
When a child does not ask for explanations, it does not mean that he is not interested in the subject or that he is already sufficiently informed: this apparent lack of curiosity shows on the contrary that he felt embarrassment in his entourage when he wanted to discuss it and so he prefers to remain silent. In this case, parents should be attentive to indirect questions such as: "Where do baby dogs come from?" If he does not make any allusion, one can approach the subject by employing just words adapted to his age. Using a small sex education book can also be a great way to engage in dialogue.
"Guide to sexual zizi"
In recent months, Zep and Hélène Bruller's "Guide du zizi sexuelle" (Glénat, 2001) has been a hit with children: 250,000 copies of this little sex education manual have already been sold. Secret of a success with Zep, creator of the famous character of BD Titeuf.
"It was while thinking back to the questions I asked myself when I was a kid that I decided to do this sex education guide.At the time, I would have loved to have a book that brings me simple and clear answers about what it means to "hang out with someone", "make love" or "to be a virgin", how to kiss a girl on the lips or to know if one has entered puberty ... One day I thought that Titeuf, my comic book character, funny, naïve, clumsy and clumsy, was perfect for answering the sexual curiosity of 9 to 13. I also made sure that the drawings, as funny as they are they never forget explanations provided by doctors, psychiatrists and school nurses.This is ultimately what must appeal to children, but also to parents: since the release of the album, many have written to thank us to make a book that serves as a tool for dialogue. emble that it is for them a real relief ...
