Parents, how did you learn about dating, boundaries, and intimacy? Remember how most our parents stayed away from such talks? Remember all the horrible dating advice your friends gave you? The odd part is most of us actually did or tried at least some of what our friends suggested.
Now picture your teenager alone in an intimate situation on either a date or at a party. We need to be blunt here: sexual dangers are monumental for today’s teenagers. With TV, teen magazines, music, internet pornography, and movies promoting sexual activity among teens, your kids are exposed to images making sexual activity look exciting and even popular. Think of all the kids at school talking about how “far” they went on a date last weekend or even last night.
The pressure for your teen to be more sexual, including engaging in sexual activity, is stronger than ever. With all the talk of sexting, fondling, oral sex, and intercourse among today’s teenagers, how do you protect your daughter or son? You know the old parenting tactics of the past will not work with your children. Letting them find out on their own is way too dangerous and scary! With parenting magazines and websites typically geared at parents of kids under 10 years old, where do you find advice for talking to you teen? Have you tried talking to your teen about dating, sex, and intimacy? Isn’t it amazing how teenagers don’t believe you can possibly understand the feelings they are going through?
Picture having an in-depth conversation about dating and sex with your teenager and then hearing him or her genuinely say, “Thanks for sharing with me. This was actually fun.” Imagine hearing your son or daughter telling you how (s)he let the guy or girl know how (s)he expects to be treated. Wouldn’t you be proud knowing your teenager was making safe, positive choices – thanks to a specific approach you recently discovered?
