About: The Chat

The Chat is a children’s book that has been written to help fathers have the all important ‘sex chat’ with their sons. It is a brilliant Christian resource that acts as a conversation starter.  The book is split into two sections; the first portion helping fathers to prepare themselves for the conversation, whilst section 2 (dedicated for both fathers and sons) is brilliantly illustrated to engage young boys. The Chat discusses the pertinent issues of sex, puberty, pornography and gender.

The Chat is unapologetically Bible based and is written to be read interactively so as to strengthen the bonds between parent and child.

“Sensitive and straightforward, it is a brilliant tool that I intend to use as my sons get to the age where we will need to have, ‘The Chat’. I recommend this to all parents.”

Ps. Mark Varughese (Kingdomcity Lead Pastor)

In a time when our nation is going through a great spiritual battle for who will disciple it, Joel Chelliah has written a book that reflects how God wants His people shaping and mouldings minds. The Chat is a book that would not be out of place to the era when Christian values were the norm but in today’s moral climate it is counter cultural. This is a godly book about sex that our children need to read.

Ps. David Williams
