I have six children, including 3 daughters, and I want to raise them well. I want to set them up for success in their future marriages. Research shows how we talk to our children, especially our daughters, about dating, sex, and relationships can affect the type of person they marry and how satisfied they’ll be in their marriage. After doing this interview you’re about to hear, I realize there are a few areas I can improve in..
Sheila Wray Gregoire is a friend of mine, as well as the author of several books on the topic of sex and marriage. Her books are awesome for those seeking helpful and accurate information from a Christian perspective. She’s funny too. She has two daughters and an angel son and two grandchildren.
I didn’t know this until this interview, but according to Sheila Wray Gregoire’s research, my generation – the millennials – grew up with the least comprehensive sex education compared to Gen X and Baby Boomer generations.
I learned that the most important thing is to have a great relationship with your children. There are also things to consider about how we talk about modesty, agency, arousal, consent, and self-definition to our children, especially our daughters.
