By Mark Oestreicher and Joel Mayward
Helping your child make wise choices about sex and dating requires more than just one chat. It’s about building bridges of ongoing dialogue throughout the teenage years.
But youth workers Mark Oestreicher and Joel Mayward realize many parents don't feel comfortable or prepared to have these kinds of conversations. That's why they wrote A Parent's Guide to Understanding Sex and Dating—a Christian book on sex and dating. This youth resource will equip you to initiate healthy, honest discussions with your teenagers. When you read this Christian book on parenting, you will also understand some of the relevant trends and issues in today's youth culture.
Your role as a parent is to do more than provide your teenager with information about sex and dating. You have the opportunity and the calling to help your child live wisely and honor God in this sometimes tricky, occasionally awkward, and always vital area of life.
