“The Talk”- that conversation that so many parents dread. Jim Burns of the HomeWord Center for Youth and Family at Azusa Pacific University travels the world speaking to thousands of parents and children every year about tough topics, such as sexuality.
Jim shares with us on how parents should talk to their kids about this subject and how it is important for Christians to take back sexuality, something that God created after all, from our culture:
When God created Adam and Eve, he created sexuality as a gift for man and woman to enjoy together in marriage. It is a holy and wonderful thing that parents should not shy away from or feel awkward about, but rather share with children in a positive way.
Proverbs 22:6 says “Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.” As Christian parents, we should not default to the culture to teach this important subject to our kids. Pray to God and ask Him for wisdom as you train up your child in the way he should go!
