More often than not, we parents are caught off guard when our children come to us with questions about sex. And if we're unprepared, chances are we'll give awkward, embarrassed, incomplete answers. Too often we don't know how to talk to our kids about sex or when we should do it.

It doesn't have to be that way. As Christian parents we can do much more than merely pass on information about reproduction. We have the opportunity of shaping the sexual character of our children.

Our children are inundated with messages and information about sex. Everywhere they turn - in our neighborhoods, in their schools, in the media - they are bombarded with discussions, stories, jokes, mixed messages, and debate about sexuality. How can parents have a significant input amid such a din, much of which seems beyond their control?

Stan & Brenna Jones suggest that sex education is really not so much a matter of providing information as it is a matter of deliberate character formation. How our children act in this critical area will not be affected by what they know about sex. It won't even be primarily affected by the Bible verses they have memorized or the warnings we give them. First and foremost, their behavior will be determined by their character. What our children do will be determined by who they are at that particular moment in time.

In How and When to Tell Your Kids About Sex, Stan and Brenna Jones offer help for establishing a biblical view of sexuality and talk about why that is so important in today's "value-neutral" society. Building on a biblical foundation, they discuss how to talk with your children about sexual issues and when it's appropriate to tell them what. You'll find important, helpful information on concerns your children face from infancy through adolescence. With stark honesty and practical suggestions, they address:

  • Building a Christian understanding of sex and sexuality
  • Handling sexual curiosity and sexual play (infancy through kindergarten)
  • Inoculating your child against destructive moral messages (pre-puberty)
  • How and when to explain sexual intercourse (pre-puberty)
  • Preparing for the physical changes of puberty (pre-puberty)
  • Preparing for dating: dealing with romance and sexual attraction (puberty)
  • Building moral discernment about petting (adolescence)
  • Encouraging a commitment to chastity (adolescence)
  • What to tell your child about contraception (adolescence)
  • What to do if you're getting a late start telling your kids about sex
