How Do We Teach Our Kids Sexual Purity?

If you’re a parent and you need help talking with your kids about sexual purity, we’ve got help.  Dr. Greg Smalley, vice president of Marriage and Family Formation at Focus on the Family joins the team.  We talk about the purity culture movement from the 90s (the pledge to save sex for marriage) and how that largely failed, and why.  Greg shares his failure with the pledge and how he found redemption and healing.  We talk about what we need to teach our kids beyond just the message of “Don’t have sex before marriage.”  Perry shares his thoughts about how our kids can express their sexual desires in life giving ways.  And then, just being raw and real, what do we say to our kids about masturbation.  If this helps you, share it with anyone you think it’ll help!
