Research demonstrates that teaching abstinence works! In survey after survey, students say that abstinence is what they want to learn. Self-control, self-respect, delayed gratification, planning for the future, and building healthy friendships are values that are essential for every aspect of successful living—not just in delay of sexual activity.“My daughter had one choice. Either she was going down the aisle a virgin, or she was going down the aisle in a coffin,” says the author in pure hyperbole. Her point is this: Kids need clear sexual boundaries. The media, the classroom, and other voices send conflicting messages to our teenagers. Society teaches youth how to say no to drugs and alcohol, but not to sex. Parents, pastors, teachers, and youth workers must speak the same message: Sexual activity outside of marriage is unacceptable! Author La Verne Tolbert brings a down-to-earth approach to teaching children and teens the importance of sexual purity. Using stories from everyday life, research examples, and Bible-based principles, she helps adults understand the why of the abstinence message and how to communicate that message effectively at home, how to monitor the message at school, and how to reinforce the message in our churches and in our communities. Keeping Your Kids Sexually Pure gives those who care about kids the power to lay a firm foundation of sexual purity. With the sometimes fatal consequences of non-marital sex gripping our world today, here is a message whose time has come.
