Francis Howell School District parents are in an uproar over a book  titled “It’s Perfectly Normal” that is available to their middle school-aged children in the libraries. The book, which is available as an e-book at the Francis Howell schools in Saint Charles County, MO, bears the tagline “Changing Bodies, Growing Up, Sëx and Sëxual Health.”

A good portion of it is about puberty and how a child’s body is changing. It gives great insight on what to do through these changes and how to take care of their bodies. While the information itself is great, the graphic cartoon drawings of nαked people in various sëxual positions makes parents uncomfortable, as it resembles many images that are depicted in Kama Sutra books for adults. While the book claims to be for children ages 10+, parents find it hard to believe that it is age appropriate.

Tim Schmidt is a parent of two students that attend Francis Howell schools. He has launched formal complaint about the book so that it can be removed from the library. The district admits that they had received a lot of the same complaints from other parents in the district but offered not further comment regarding the matter.

As of now, the district will keep the book as an e-book in the library for the students to have available. They feel that it is a great resource for students to have due to their changing bodies and the confusion that they may feel and are uncomfortable speaking with their parents about it. They’re also willing to acknowledge parents’ requests of not allowing their child to borrow the book. June Tiller is a parent of a student from the school and feels that there is nothing wrong with the book. She says that it is something that they teach in the school anyway.
