Jokin de Irala, Full Professor of Preventive Medicine and Public Health of the University of Navarra and director of project Education of affectivity and human sexuality of high school Science and Society (ICS), together with Ignacio Gómara, partner of ICS and professor of high school Miravalles-El Redín, have published the book Nuestros hijos... quieren querer querer.

The book is addressed to fathers and mothers "who want to better accompany their children in the wonderful challenge of building their personality and happiness, offering them a positive orientation and financial aid in their affective and sexual training "."Children want to love but do not know how. They want to express their feelings and doubts but often do not know to whom to open their hearts," says Dr. Jokin de Irala.

"Some parents fear their children's adolescence and do not feel safe to talk to them and guide them in matters of affectivity and sexuality, which are intensely manifested during puberty. But to educate the affectivity and sexuality of the children it is not convenient to wait for the appearance of acne. The Education for love begins much earlier, when the first 'I don't want' comes out of their mouths," the authors remind us.

In this new book, which also includes various on-line didactic resources, parents will find a financial aid to educate their children's affectivity and talk to them about sexuality, life and health. It will also be interesting reading for teachers and educators who wish to find answers to the current educational challenges related to the affective-sexualEducation , and for students of Degrees such as teachers, psychology, pedagogy or science.
