I have just finished reading From Santa to Sexting:Helping Your Child Safely Navigate Middle School and Shape the Choices that Last a Lifetime by Brenda Hunter and Kristen Blair, and I have to say that I am blown away by some of the things I learned and not surprised by other things.
There were some things that I was shocked to learn from this book, the sexual things going on in middle school and the choking games that boys play. I also learned about the signs of these as well as the signs of cutting and drug use.
This is an eye opening book that I think all parents should read even if their children aren't in middle school yet. As a fourth grade teacher, I already see students that are involved in some of these behaviors or who are well on their way. I also know all to well the parents who choose themselves over their children, setting them up for failure because they don't set rules and have consequences for inappropriate behavior.
I am thankful to Leafwood Publishers for sending a free copy of this book for my honest review.
