“Let’s start at the very beginning, a very good place to start.” That’s a famous line from Julie Andrews in the Sound of Music and it can help this conversation with our kids. Instead of starting with sex, let’s start from the beginning and how God made our bodies.
Today Kate and I discuss a great book that walks your child through their changing body and body parts. My daughter was eager to read each chapter and asked so many questions. It naturally opened up conversations that gave me the opportunity to speak into her body and how God created it.
The way God created our bodies gives purpose to sex and intimacy in marriage. You can do this, MAMA! Imagine it like a faucet dripping water in your sink. Overtime the sink fills up. You can drip truth about your chid’s body and sex consistently into life and conversation. Overtime their hearts will become full of understanding and God’s truth.
