4 Reasons You MUST Talk to Your Kids about 50 Shades

  With the 50 Shades of Grey movie releasing soon (a worldwide release date of 13 February), our culture is ablaze with controversy and debate over sexual issues once again. But this one is a little different than controversies of the past. 50 Shades takes pornography – particularly a violent and abusive form of sex – and glorifies it. People (women in particular) are falling for it on an alarming scale. Even Christians are succumbing to the enticement of 50 Shades. In short, it, and the topic of BDSM, is in our faces now like never before. “BDSM is an acronym for Bondage, Dominance, Sadism, and Masochism. In psychiatry, the terms sadism and masochism describe a personality type characterized by a person deriving pleasure and gratification from inflicting physical pain and humiliation. The terms specifically refer to one who either enjoys giving pain (sadist) or one who enjoys receiving pain (masochist).” This definition is from Pulling Back the

Missing something?

Ready to go back to school? As the school year quickly approaches, I find myself going over endless mental checklists. Do I have the right math workbook for the 6 year old? Does my 6 year old remember the math facts we learned last year? What about my middle school child? Will they be able to stand against the pressures of their peer group? What about gym shoes? Does everyone have clothes that fit? The list goes on and on, yet in the midst of all the planning and schedule, there are a handful of key things I feel sometimes get overlooked when we start to plan our school years. It’s not just about academics – We go through so much turmoil trying to figure out the proper academic course for our kids. But fast forward twenty years from now, and let’s say your son is married, has 2 children,

Moms, Daughters and Periods

It’s that moment all women remember. For some of us, it was the panic of thinking we were dying at the first sign of blood. For others, it started horrifically at the wrong time; like a pool party with your cute new suit. Maybe your mom said something to you like “welcome to the curse honey”. Maybe you read in a book that women are indeed cursed (thanks to Eve). When bloating, PMS and cramps set in, you might have even started to believe that too. But the reality is, that God designed our bodies the way He did. He called us “fearfully and wonderfully made” (Psalm 139:14). Our bodies are specially designed. Now like anyone, there are days I don’t feel like this. We’re constantly being bombarded with extreme messages from the feminist movement, telling us that everything about our bodies is wrong. Some days it’s harder than others

Periods gone right: why you don’t want to miss the God-factor

I was in a dilemma. I was getting my hair done, and my stylist shared how girl’s on average start their periods two years younger than their mothers did. I was shocked, whipped my head around and…..went home with a completely different hair cut than I had planned. My oldest daughter was 8 at the time. If I started my period at 11, that meant she could start in a year. I couldn’t imagine breaking into my sweet, innocent 8 year olds world, and giving her the adult details on body changes, periods, and babies. I remember being completely overwhelmed when I learned all the ‘facts of life’, and I wasn’t about to do the same to my baby. After some thought and prayer, I came to the conclusion maybe I should just talk to her about body changes and starting her period, and leave out some significant details about

Periods and sex: how to tell your daughter (without her running in terror)

Have you ever noticed that normally the conversation “sweetheart, let me tell you what a period is” goes hand in hand with the “sweetheart, this is how (gulp), um, babies are made”? About the time I learned girls start their periods two years earlier than their moms did (on average), I was convinced my 8 year old daughter needed to know what was ahead as her body developed. I wasn’t convinced however, of her needing to know all the details about sex along with the information on her body changes. Oh sure, I wanted to give her some information – just not all of it (CLICK HERE to find out what “some information” can look like for an 8 year-old).  When I sat down with my girlfriends to write the books we couldn’t find, The Beautifully Made Series for moms and daughters (ages 8+), some topics discussed were how early

The easiest way to explain sex to your kids

Here is an excerpt from our Help Page: What exactly is “age appropriate” information about sex? Your guide to avoiding TMI “When it comes to starting this conversation, the easiest thing to do is read your child a book. At Generations of Virtue, we’ve done some massive amounts of searching and reading to find books that best help parents in this area. It takes the pressure off of you to come up with exactly the right words, and conveniently many of these books are in story format. There are several series that we recommend, with suggested ages to give you a general compass. Your best bet though, is always to read them before you sit with your kids. Every child matures differently, and also depending on environments, some kids will be ready for more information than their peers of the same age.” So here are a few of our favorites: 1. The Miracle
