For Mothers with Daughters

Listening to this half hour show today:

WOMANTalk: Are You Your Daughter's Ally?, from Changing Worldviews

"With Sharon Hersh & Debra Rae
"Today girls think sex is a natural part of teen relationships. College girls sell their decency for $100 and a T-shirt, and many young women live lives of "desperate housewives." How can you help your daughter navigate safely through these waters?"

Based on the ideas in:
"Mom, sex is NO big deal! :
Becoming your daughter's ally in developing a healthy sexual identity" by Sharon Hersh

" “But Mom, it’s not the same as when you were a teenager….” Your daughter is right. Never before have teenage girls been so inundated with the idea that sex is a natural part of teenage relationships. The media, the Internet, and your daughter’s peers reinforce this myth daily. And never before has the price tag of teen sexual behavior been so high–disease, depression, and a distorted view of self. The good news is that you can use the challenges your daughter faces today as catalysts to help her develop a sacred view of sex and of herself. “Mom, Sex Is NO Big Deal!” will arm you with information and strategies to help your daughter arrive at a place of wholeness as she makes decisions about how she will behave sexually during the most vulnerable period of her life."
Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love. Ephesians 4:15-16
