I used the product three different years for my girls and now my husband is taking our son. It is very helpful material for showing God's plan for our bodies and how we work. It helps preteens/teens set boundaries before they find themselves in difficult situations. Opens up dialogue and allows for a special bonding time between parent and adolescent. Parents must review and prepare object lessons before the weekend. Optional message isn't for everyone so know your material before you start the weekend.
This is an excellent program which allows kids to start THINKING in a non threatening way about how they will behave BEFORE the time when society thinks it is ok to date. It also bolsters the parent/child relationship in such a way as to prevent the youth from seeking a relationship to fill a need for love that is lacking in their life. If the kids KNOW you love them and most of all that Jesus loves them, that love will protect them from making unwise choices. Thanks Dennis and Barb Rainey so much for this wonderful opportunity to learn and grow with my preteen!
We had an awesome weekend with our oldest son. It really touched on everything I fell that is so very important for teenagers these days. It made it easy to talk about subjects that are not always easy to talk about. I would have loved to have experienced this program when I was a teenager. We have a great relationship with him already and I felt like it made us even closer. I would recommend this program to everyone with children. Thumbs up!!! :)) Can't wait for our 2nd sons weekend!!
It would have been nice if Dennis Rainey would have ordered the items at the cliff for parental reference. It may also have been more effective to view the program on DVD. He should also go to the "trouble" of saying he/she throughout, rather than gearing the program toward males. However, an exceptional resource that will serve in laying a much-needed (clear) foundation for morality in the lives of our preadolescents.
