THERE'S MORE TO TEACHING YOUR KIDS ABOUT SEX THAN A NERVOUS DISCUSSION OF THE BIRDS AND THE BEES.
Our children are inundated with messages and information about sex. Everywhere they turn-in our neighborhoods, in the schools, in the media-they are bombarded with discussions, stories, jokes, mixed messages, and debate about sexuality. How can parents have a significant input amid such a din-much of which seems beyond their control?
Stan and Brenna Jones suggest that sex education is really not so much a matter of providing information as it is a matter of deliberate character formation. How our children act in this critical area will not be affected by how much information they have stored away. It won't even be primarily affected by the Bible verses they have memorized, or the warnings we give them. First and foremost, their behavior will be determined by their character. What our children do will be determined by who they are at that particular moment in time.
How and When to Tell Your Kids About Sex will help you to move beyond the "sweaty palms and lump-in-the-throat" approach to discussing sex with your kids. It will give you the tools you need for building the kind of Christian character in your kids that will enable them to stand on their own and make the right choices.
