How To Speak to your Children about Sex
“We should not be ashamed to discuss what God was not ashamed to create.”
Dr Howard Hendricks
It’s not always easy to talk to your children about sex. Depending on how you were raised,
your past experiences and your view about sex will all add up to how you address this topic.
Kids want to know about life. They have lots of questions. The difference is who will tell
them about what they want to know and how will they know if it’s to be trusted or not.
Every conversation with your child is an opportunity for discipleship.
Every interaction shapes them, guides them, and affirms them in who they are and who they will become. Just like you teach them about taking care of their bodies, how to brush their teeth, how to be a friend and more, you need to teach them about sex, using age-appropriate illustrations, questions, and words. God the Creator, invented sex; it was His idea. After He finished creating, He declared the whole of creation as ‘good,’ and that includes sex.
Through this e-book, you can overcome your fears and insecurities and start that conversation
with your children.
