Find Out: What IS a Parent to Say?
“There is probably no more challenging task for a parent than guiding their son or daughter to a positive and right understanding of sexuality in a sex-saturated world. Indeed, how can we talk about sex in a way that conveys that it is much more than body parts and functions? Parents know that it is a topic that deserves more than ‘the talk’ and rules on what one should not do.But the ‘how to’ of putting sexuality in the context of one’s relationship with God, one’s own self respect, and respect for others is enough to tie a parent up in knots!”
So begins Family Honor’s book, Sex and Chastity: What’s a Parent to Say? Family Honor understands that, in the unrelentingly aggressive so-called ‘popular culture’ that we are living in, parents often need a ‘jump start’ to initiate these important conversations with their sons and daughters. That’s why we’re here – to encourage, equip and empower parents to be the primary people their children and teens come to, to discuss the ‘big issues’ in life. Our online course, our parent-child programs, our resources, our media interviews, and our special events and conferences are all designed, first and foremost, with parents in mind.
