      Aww, thank you Tammy! I’ve had “the talk” with probably over 20 children – none of them my own! Thank you for wonderful support. God bless!

      Thank you so much for your kinds words, Donna. God continues to place people and situations in my life so that I can hopefully broaden the reach to others as well. Thank you for stopping by and showing support. God bless!

  1. It’s vital for Christian parents to give guidance in the most difficult area of life, while their kids are young enough to take their parents’ advice and before the hormones hit. If they have no guidance, they are highly likely to shipwreck this area.

      Great points Susan! We can only control what goes on in our own home so we need to be proactive. Thank you for sharing your insights. God bless!

  2. This is very informative. I believe that it is our job as parents to teach our children all about sex from a biblical stand put. We need to be open and honest with them, especially this day and time.

      So true. We need to let them know the beauty and wonder that God created sexual intimacy to be as well as the negative that others have made it. Thank you for stopping by and commenting! God bless!

      I’m glad the post was beneficial. I hope that it helps to provide you an outline on how to talk with your children. Thank you for stopping by and sharing your experiences. God bless!

  3. Love the memory of your grandparents and having to eat liver and onions!

    I’ve used a Christian sex series with my 2 older ones and I will read them to the next 3 also!

      That’s great that you’ve found material that has worked for you and for your children. (Thankfully my grandma didn’t make me eat the liver!) Thank you for reading and sharing! God bless!

    Such great advise here! I bet a lot of moms/dads appreciate this one! I am sure it’s not easy giving the “sex” talk. I also can’t believe girls are now having their periods even younger- it’s crazy!

      I’ve given “the talk” probably over twenty times. Not much embarrasses me anymore pertaining to anatomy! Kids come up with some pretty interesting questions. Thank you for stopping by and commenting! God bless!

  5. I think you did a great job tying in Biblical truths with biological facts! Side note…man did I laugh at your grandfather’s dinner choice!

    • melissa

      Thank Aly! It’s definitely funny now but it wasn’t so funny at the time! Man liver smells terrible! Thank you for stopping by and commenting. God bless!

  6. This is really a great guide and a helpful tool. We’ve used a similar framework with our children, but I’ve also tried to create an environment where sexuality is not a forbidden topic–that we can answer honest questions honestly as our children ask them. And we seize those teachable moments to reinforce what we’ve already taught. Pinning this as a resource for later.

      That’s great Leigh that your children know they can go to you for any of their questions. Too often children worry their parents will be mad or they are too uncomfortable to ask. Thank you for stopping by and sharing your insights. God bless!

    This is a tough subject for many parents. We have 5 kids and we want them to guard their heart and so don’t overshare but at the same time share what they understand at their age. I remember how I found out and don’t want my children finding out the same way.

    • melissa

      It is a balance. Thankfully sharing God’s design keeps our children’s hearts intact! Thank you for sharing your insights. God bless!

  8. Wow melissa… I am so grateful to God for giving you such revelation that can be made practical .. one of best articles that i Have loved. creating a balance in this topic with our children gives them such an immense confidence.

    • melissa

      Thank you for such kind words. This is a topic that doesn’t get a lot of attention because of embarrassment. But that is such a disservice to God as sexual intimacy is His creation. Thank you for reading and again for your kind words. God bless!
