You don't want to make a big deal out of it. Isn't everyone else already talking about sex? Yes, they are talking, and their words are shaping your child's understanding right now. In a culture that glorifies casual sex, kids will only learn to think biblically about it when parents speak up.
William P. Smith shares a practical, non-threatening model that will connect your child to God's perspective on sex and intimacy. As you initiate intentional conversations, you will create a safe and God-honoring space for your child to ask questions about sex and receive biblical answers.
