5 Things Every Parent Needs to Know About Their Kids & Sex

Real Help for the Toughest Talks  – Nervous about talking to your kids about sex? Anxiety over having “the talk” often means we avoid it as long as we can. While we’re waiting, our kids are getting their questions answered and their perceptions of sex and sexuality formed elsewhere–through online searches and a daily diet of mainstream and social media that may shock you.

Disclosure: I have not been compensated to share this post. The opinions on this blog are my own.

In this immensely practical and well-researched book, Anne Marie Miller equips parents to take control of the narrative their children are receiving about sex. She shows how to have meaningful and age-appropriate conversations about sex, pornography, and sexual abuse. She also shows how to keep the lines of communication open so that your kids know they can trust you with their fears, struggles, and mistakes. Most important, she offers hope that your children can grow up with a healthy biblical view of sex as a gift from God.

My View

While I don’t necessarily agree that children need complete sheltering from life, I do agree that perhaps we might consider talking to kids about the family values is important.  We must discuss the media’s influence and impact on our lives .. follow the steps to have a healthy view of sexuality.

Anne Marie Miller is the author of five books. She has been featured in numerous publications, including Cosmopolitan, Relevant Magazine, Leadership Journal, Christianity Today, and Youth Worker Journal. Miller speaks frequently at colleges, conferences, and churches in the United States and internationally. She and her husband, Tim, live in Iowa. Learn more at http://www.annemariemiller.com.

One thought on “5 Things Every Parent Needs to Know About Their Kids & Sex

  1. I don’t think you need to be religious to think about sex as a gift, I think you can kids who aren’t bouncing from partner to partner if they also have values. We’re not a religious family but I also believe kids see and learn from their environment, so if mom and dad are faithful to each other, that does help as well. NOT that I’m trying to step on toes of other family units, but I do believe that enviroment does have an impact too.
