A successful conversation with your kids about purity requires intentionality, being a good story teller and being vulnerable.

Talking Points:

  • Parents, create a conversational culture in your home so that you can have meaningful discussions about the stuff that matters-
  • like sex.
  • The “sex talk” shouldn’t be a one time deal. It should be an ongoing conversation that changes as your kids mature.
  • Three things that will help your conversation:
    • Be intentional. Be the person they feel comfortable coming to when they have questions or concerns about sex or anything else. 
    • Be persuasive.  Tell a better story than what our culture says about sex. Don’t be afraid to talk about how God designed sex to be fun and meant for a husband and wife. 
    • Be vulnerable. Don’t be afraid to share some of your own story. Your kids can learn a lot from hearing about what you learned from your mistakes.
