Passport to Purity
I am the mother of two young girls actually they are young women, currently 13 and 16 years old now. I have committed my life to preparing them for all the different stages they will go through. I taught them how to call home, self defense, anti-bullying, teamwork, phone courtesy, and on and on and on. I also have taught them to love themselves, respect themselves and honor themselves. I also have had MANY discussions about sex, yep sex. None of these discussions went poorly and I'm so glad that I had them when I did. The best sex talk I ever had was on our "Passport to Purity" weekend. I was really excited and pleased when Pastor Tammy recommended this material to myself and my husband. I jumped in with both feet and never looked back.I highly recommend you check this life changing material out for your pre-teen boy or girl.
Note from the publisher:
A life-changing getaway with your preteen. Your child begins the journey into adolescence in a world of sexting, bullying, online stalking and moral defiance. Innocence is under attack, and you cannot win the battle with a single awkward talk or a strict set of rules. The primary defense for your child is a strong relationship with you and with God.
FamilyLife has developed Passport2Purity® (P2P) to assist you in building heart-to-heart communication with your preteen while laying a foundation of purity that will prepare them for the turbulent years ahead. Through the shared listening experience, object lessons and guided conversations of a P2P weekend getaway, you can set your son or daughter on a journey of moral integrity—and strengthen the bond between you.
Passport2Purity® is designed to be used by a mother and daughter or a father and son when the child is a preteen. It is suggested that the materials be completed over a weekend away from home, as the child may be more open to discussing the topics away from his or her normal environment. If this isn’t possible, the material can be completed over a period of four or five weeks.
I hear frequently from other parents, "I don't have a clue on how to handle this stage?"
Well now we DO! Parent Cue is published by Orange and is a FREE App on Apple or Android devices. Visit the "Family Resources" to download yours today.
It's such a wonderful tool in helping me be the parent I want to be. From the time our children are born until the time they graduate we have only 936 weeks to be in their everyday lives. Let's make the best of this time by being intentional with our conversations, prayers, requests and redirections. Parent Cue will send you "cues" of ideas things to say, things to do, and things to think about. Every Cue fits with your child's developmental phase. I use these Cues weekly to connect with my girls, I hope you find it useful too!
