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

Dateless on Valentine’s?

Is your tween or teen dateless this Valentine’s Day? Perhaps you are witnessing them struggle as their peers make Valentine’s Day plans. In the face of our present culture, a dateless Valentine’s Day can leave one feeling unwanted and somewhat miserable. Your tweens and teens need to know that love is a good thing. Truthfully, it’s a wonderful thing. It’s good because God made it and, in fact, Scripture says God is love (1 John 4:16). Your tweens and teens should look forward to a relationship with their spouse. But just because their significant other isn’t on their arm at the moment, that doesn’t mean there is something lacking in their lives or they are less of a person. This may take some convincing, Mom and Dad, and you’re going to want to really pray for backup, too, because you’ll be going head-to-head with a lot of Hollywood’s messages. The

How do I talk to my daughter about the Grammy’s?

By:  Dannah Gresh | Published:  January 29, 2014   Hopefully, you’re daughter was all tucked into bed when the Grammy’s started out with grinding Sunday night, but it’s likely that some girls her age—perhaps friends at school—were glued to the television. Pre-show media touted the 2014 Grammy Awards as a family affair. Huffington Post even offered a table talk guide and ideas to help kids ”cultivate the understanding, appreciation and advancement of the contribution of recorded music to American culture.” But what the world saw—from grinding to explicit lyrics to darkly themed performances to a “church” service— was not appropriate for young viewers, and you may need help navigating post-show conversations with your kids whether they saw the show or are just hearing about it from friends. And—whether you realize it or not—there really is something worth talking about. Her name is Natalie Grant. Grammy-nominated, five-time Dove Award winning recording artist Natalie Grant

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

Won’t they come to me to learn about sex?

Won’t my child come to me when he’s ready to know about sex? Not always. If you expect your child to do the initiating on the birds and bees topic, he’ll most likely come after he’s already heard or read something (if he comes at all). The “first person who talks to your kids about sex, is like them leaving their footprints in wet cement”1. Do you want to risk your child hearing about sex from the media, their friends, or google? The likelihood of the information they hear being from a Biblical perspective is very slim. The only way you can be sure that they hear about sex in its proper, beautiful context, is by telling them yourself.
