My Body is a Gift Discussions: Pages 14-15

If you’ve taken the time to introduce the connection between the body and the soul inside on the last 2 pages, then these pages can continue that line of discussion.  These pages address healthy sexuality at some of the deepest levels: our thoughts and words.

Thus far the questions I have listed have been more directed toward younger age children since these concepts are generally taught to this age group.  Older children see these pages as more of a review, though many of the discussion questions can be easily adapted to them (discussions on healthy food, frequency of bathing, the dentist’s latest evaluation of their brushing, etc).

The book, “My Body is a Gift from God: Introducing Conversations to SafPageflex Persona [document: PRS0000444_00047]eguard Children” is an excellent way to begin a pattern of ongoing conversations about healthy sexuality with your children.

There are an unlimited number of such conversations that can begin with the pages of this book, based on the individual experiences of children and families.

Let’s get started!

Lies About Sex: Introduction

I’m planning a number of short posts that are great small-conversation starters with children ages 9+.  These conversations are follow-up conversations, once you have had talks about the process of sex.  I tell parents it is helpful to say, “now we have talked about what is real.  Let’s talk about the destructive, unhealthy, inaccurate messages you will see in the media, maybe from friends, or other places.  These messages are lies.  I want to tell you about them so you will know ahead of time and can spot them quickly.  When you see or hear one, come talk to me and tell me about it.  I’ll be proud of you for spotting them.”  To prepare for these mini-conversations you can look for posts entitled “Lies About Sex” and can also find your own lies you want to discuss.  Sometimes your kids will even find one on their own!
