Discussing Christian Sexuality
An often difficult subject for parents is their children's understanding of sexuality. Parents want to keep kids pure and innocent for as long as they can. It's hard to know how to talk about sexuality with them when the time comes, especially from a Christian point of view. Parents are often unsure: when is the right time? How should I begin? What if they don't listen? What does God say?
Because We Love Them: Fostering Christian Sexuality in our Children
by Sheree Havlik
Drawing from years of experience as both a parent and teen counselor, Sheree Havlik can help. She reminds parents that they must raise their children to share their Christian approach to sexuality and all that this encompasses. In a friendly, conversational style, Havlik shows parents that they can be their children's primary source of information on sexuality. With understanding, Havlik helps parents relax and find their own answers to questions of when and how. Parents already know why: because we love them.
Chastity Seminars with Parents and Youth
The Speakers Bureau offers Chastity Seminars which not only deliver the message of chastity to youth, but also open the door for parents to communicate with their son or daughter on the subject of their sexuality. The true, long-lasting impact on moral issues comes from our upbringing – through our parents. The goal of the seminar is to inspire everyone to a lifetime of chastity through family communication and commitment. Creating an understanding that our sexuality is a gift from God emphasizes both the holiness of each individual’s sexuality and the holiness of the act, which is reserved for marriage only. Everyone should come away understanding that chastity is not just for today, but for a lifetime.
How to schedule/attend a Chasity Seminar:
- Parents: Ask the principal at your child's school or the Youth Minister or Director of Religious Education at your parish to contact the CPLC Speakers Bureau about scheduling a seminar.
- School or Parish Staff: Invite the CPLC Speakers Bureau to come to your school or parish to present how to talk to your youth about sexuality.
Email or call the Speakers Bureau about a chastity seminar or any other presentations.
