Product Description

Sexuality is a precious gift from God; when handled responsibly, it is a source of blessing and delight. But how can parents encourage this outcome when so many forces push children to make bad choices about sex and when even from their earliest years children are bombarded by destructive, false messages about the nature of sexual intimacy? First messages are the most powerful; why wait until your child hears the wrong thing and then try to correct it? Sexuality is a beautiful gift; why not present it to children the way God intended? Why not establish yourself as the trusted expert to whom your children can turn to find out God's truth about sexuality?

This series helps parents shape their children's character, particularly in the area of sexuality. Sex education in the family is less about biological information and more about shaping your child's moral character. The earlier children learn to see themselves as God does---including their sexuality---the stronger they will be as they enter the turbulent teen years.

Third in the series, this book reinforces previous instruction on the basics of sexual intercourse and the fundamental goodness of our sexuality, continues the task of deliberately building your child's understanding of why God intends sex to be reserved for marriage, and helps you begin the process of "inoculating" your child against the negative moral messages of the world. The principle of inoculation suggests that while we should not allow our children to be inundated with the destructive messages of the world, we should deliberately expose them to the contrary moral messages that they will hear in order to build up their defenses against them. Content is presented in a question & answer format in which questions by "Sam" and "Amy" are followed by answers from "Mom" and "Dad." You can read this book with your child or have him/her read it and then discuss it with you. Each chapter is concluded with questions for discussion. Recommended for ages 8 to 11.

Q: How does the book explain homosexuality?

A:

This book explains homosexuality as sinful sexual behavior, which is outside of God's loving design for sex and briefly explains the fact that our bodies are not designed for it. People that practice it are held up as sinners in need of God's redemption, just like anyone else that chooses to disobey God's rules.
