After being a teacher, speaker and coach in public and private school classrooms, auditoriums and gymnasiums over the past 35 years, I’ve observed a lot of teenage behavior and I’ve heard a lot of stories. Stories of heartache, loss, pain, regret, guilt, shame, condemnation, fear, anger, hatred, sexual sin & addiction, depression and suicide. It’s obvious to me that John 10:10 is at work: The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; the devil is working overtime to capture the attention of our children – your children. However, we know how the story ends! Jesus says, “I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” Amen!
It’s time to flip this thing! Your kids are good kids and Jesus loves them! You’re a good parent and He loves you too! It’s time for us to take back our responsibility and forget about relying on the school or the church to teach our children to honor themselves and each other. It’s time for us to parent for purity – to be on the offensive and to be an intentional parent for abstinence, relationship and sexuality education!
Wouldn’t it be awesome for your kids to grow up with godly guidance and a plan for their purity – something more than “hoping and praying” they make it through their teen years unscathed. When parents know “why” their teenager should wait for sex; when parents know “how” to help their teenager wait for sex; and when parents “support” their teenager for waiting, teenagers can do this – they can delay sex! The research says that 73% of 15-17 year olds have never had sex!! (Guttmacher Inst. 2/13. Check it out – that’s research from the safe sex folks!) Kids can do this!! They are doing it! Your teen can delay sex too! I can show you how!
Here’s an excerpt from a letter I just received from a Mom of 2 daughters, ages 13 & 15 after she and her husband attended a TALL Truth Parent Education Series:
My husband and I took your parent education sessions in April at the local Christian high school. I just want to validate that what you do is so meaningful and life changing and what you are committing your life to-it is beautiful! My daughters will be better off because of it and our family and the legacy of our family will benefit and be changed because of what you teach! Thank you!
In humility and with much respect,
What if you could teach your teen how to have the BEST sex…by waiting until marriage and raise the bar of sexual self-control for your teenager like Becky and her husband did? They’re parenting for purity on purpose and you can too!
