We had the “talk” with our sons tonight. After it was over, my husband said he learned some things…after 5 kids I thought we would have had all the bases covered. 😉 LOL!
It was awesome sharing what the Lord has stored up for them. Even though they didn’t understand everything, we were genuine and were able to discuss what things were meant for and how God intended them to be enjoyed between a husband and wife.
We also shared how certain temptations are going to creep up on them and how they can respond to it. Some things were just so basic and yet so liberating to us, probably more than them.
We want our children to know that God puts certain desires in us for a reason and it is a good thang!
My boys now know they can come to us with absolutely everything. I’d rather they come to us with questions and not worry about being embarrassed than experimenting with strangers.
We felt waiting to tell our child before their wedding night or even middle school was probably too late. Provocative images are everywhere rather we like it or not.
We also used the correct linguistics. It truly helped not be confusing and made it a more mature conversation.
My hubs wasn’t totally comfortable with having the talk but afterwards he was so thankful. It was easier than he thought not to mention totally lighthearted.
