If you’re like me, you have an awkward memory of “the talk”. Ambiguity and confusion marked that particular moment in my life. While what was being told to me was important I can’t say that the communication was as clear as my parents would have liked. So while “the talk” doesn’t stick out to me when I think about purity the conversations with my parents throughout my teen years do.
Passport to Purity is an awesome program that gives you (parent, caregiver, etc) all the tools you need to discuss a lifestyle of purity that goes far beyond a purity ring and a curfew.
As a children’s pastor and #kidmin consultant I am a huge fan of this program. Countless parents I know have done this program with their kids with outstanding results. It provides a beautiful opportunity to have intentional time with your kiddo to talk about purity. The getaway kit is designed for a weekend getaway with your child but it can be broken up into different periods as well.
The getaway kit includes:
Your child begins the journey into adolescence in a world of sexting, bullying, online stalking and moral defiance. Innocence is under attack, and you cannot win the battle with a single awkward talk or a strict set of rules. The primary defense for your child is a strong relationship with you and with God. FamilyLife developed Passport2Purity (
P2P) to assist you in building heart-to-heart communication with your preteen while laying a foundation of purity that will prepare him or her for the turbulent years ahead.
Through the shared listening experience, object lessons and guided conversations of a P2P weekend getaway, you can set your son or daughter on a journey of moral integrity – and strengthen the bond between you. It is designed to be used by a mother and daughter or a father and son when the child is a preteen. It is suggested that the materials be completed over a weekend away from home, as the child may be more open to discussing the topics away from his or her normal environment. If this isn’t possible, the material can be completed over a period of four or five weeks.
They have a great offer to receive 25% off the getaway kit by using the promo code PASSPORT on their website. This promo code is good through 8/31/15.
