Shameless Parenting is the 21st-century book parents have been asking for! It highlights the trickiest parts of each age from birth to 18 years old that tend to trigger shame, and guides parents on how to provide emotionally for their children while helping them understand the shame that is emerging for them.
Shame is what makes us reactive as parents. It is the hardest part of parenting. It is from our own places of shame that we over-react, repeating patterns from our parents that we might otherwise have resisted, and finding ourselves stuck, not knowing what to do.

Erasing Shame from Sexual Intimacy
More about Sex, God, and the Conservative Church
Sex, God, and the Conservative Church helps everyday people and clinicians to understand what it means to grow up with abstinence education or a faith mired in sexual shame and dysfunction. This book provides new narratives and practices for those who desire to both heal and hold on to their faith orientation.
Schermer Sellers first walks readers through a critique of American culture and the conservative Christian church and its effects on intimate partnerships and sexual lives, then begins to reveal the hidden mystical sex- and body-positive understanding of sexuality of the Hebrew people. The book also includes chapters on strategies for a new sexual ethic, clinical steps to heal sexual shame, and specific sex therapy interventions clinicians can use directly in their practice. Finally, it offers a four-step model for healing religious sexual shame and touch and non-touch exercises to bring healing and intimacy into a person's life.
Who should read this book
Anyone who has dealt with any kind of sexual shame and desires tools to help both themselves and their partner
Those who grew up in a religious setting with a strict "purity" culture
Clinicians looking for resources to guide clients around issues of sexual shame, especially religious sexual shame
