    • Some messages
      from the
      Coming of Age Series
      follow
    • “The talk” is an old-school idea. You need to engage in ongoing conversations about sex with your kids.
    • The most powerful
      and important sex organ
      is the brain;
      use it.
    • Healthy sexuality is learned.
    • We are not victims of our biology; we are thinking beings.
      We control our actions.
    • It’s time to break the silence. Sexuality is too important; don’t let your kids simply pick up the values of the culture.
    • Kids will fill-in-the-blanks about sex with whatever information is available to them.
    • The desire for intimacy is universal.
    • Strong and loving family relationships shape children for life.
    • Early dating is a risk factor for early sexual exploration.
    • Parents, you have more influence over your teen than he or she will ever let you know. Never give up.
    • Your teen will push against you and act bored. Get used to it.
    • Sexual expression is a very personal and intimate way of sharing.
      It is meant to be good and beautiful.
    • Forgive yourself for your parenting failures.
      We all have them.
    • We can accomplish great things when we work together.
    • The desire to engage in sexual activity with another person is a normal drive. It’s your job to channel that drive and to use your sexual power in a responsible and respectful way.
    • Give your child strong roots to grow, then wings to fly.
    • To bring these events to
      your community
