...or, let's avoid the subject, call it God Magic, go get a Slurpee, and call it a day.
If that's your first reaction regarding the of education your children about sex, join the club. We have t-shirts.
The whole subject scared the fire outta me and made me want to hide under the covers, rocking in fetal position, for the next 10 years.
And then I met Mary Flo. Actually, I didn't meet her, I heard her speak and her words were like sweet, sweet, comfort to my petrified soul.
For years, Mary Flo Ridley has been helping parents just like you and me navigate the waters of talking about sex with your children. She does it with grace, humor, and honesty and encourages you, as the authority in your children's lives, to do the same.
Being in Dallas, we have the privilege of hearing from Mary Flo more often than most. In fact, she's speaking at Covenant's Parent Forum on Monday Night.
She has recently published a book called Simple Truths where she walks parents step-by-step through the process of establishing healthy values in the home, and answering tough questions that young children have about sex.
It's amazing, a must have for parents, and a whole lot better than hiding under the covers.
Trust me. I've tried.
Mary Flo has given me a copy of her book to give away. Just leave me a comment and I'll pick a winner randomly on Wednesday, March 3rd!
In the meantime, check out her great blog, "Sooner Than You Think". She's a fantastic writer with great tips for parents. And I'm not just saying that because one time she baked her famous Ridley Pumpkin Cake for our family. For that, I just kissed her feet.
