As our youth pastor was preaching this morning about how to best help the faith of your children to grow, he mentioned overhearing some middle schoolers discussing s*x. He decided to ask them where they went when they had questions about s*x. Many of us thought the answer would be “friends.” You could hear an audible gasp as he told us the answer was “Google.” YIKES!
You could sense his passion about moving us to discuss difficult topics with our children when he very loudly proclaimed, “And parents, this should GREATLY disturb you!!!” After all, we don’t know what kinds of images Google will imprint on their minds and in their hearts.
So if you are a parent who has put off discussing those difficult subjects with your children, please let this be a motivator to you to start talking with them!!! That song from childhood, “Oh be careful little eyes what you see” is still applicable with our children, even when they are teens.
