  • Have frequent discussions and give gentle reminders to your children about how sex was created by God for marriage
  • Nurture a culture of openness in your home where they can feel comfortable coming to you with questions about their developing sexuality
  • Filter out any publications or media that treat women like sex objects or glorify promisquity
  • Go through an age-appropriate program on abstinence education with your pre-teen and/or teenager
  • Encourage group activities versus couples dating
