Thoughts for Today
Encourage sexual purity. Virginity can only be lost once. Even if the loss is regretted, it can never be recovered. After covering yourself with prayer, discuss with your teen God's reasons for delaying sexual activity until marriage. Talk about the dangers of promiscuity, even with protected sex.
Father, I pray you will guard my child's mind, heart, and emotions. Provide friends and occasions that encourage moral purity. Prevent friendships with ungodly, rebellious teenagers. Place in my teen's heart a desire for a godly mate. In Jesus' name . . .

Godly Parenting: Parenting Skills at Each Stage of Growth by N. Elizabeth Holland, M.D. This study addresses parenting skills from the time of conception until the child has reached adulthood. It suggests methods for raising healthy, godly children in an increasingly secular society. Specific emphasis is placed on communication and teaching skills, discipline, protection and sexual issues at each age. Note: This curriculum was written especially for small groups, and we encourage people to use it that way. However, it can also be used effectively as a personal study for individuals or couples.
