What Can Parents Do?
Be Your Child's Primary Sex Educator
We recommend reading with your child a series of four age-appropriate books, God’s Design for Sex. These books were written to help guide the conversations with your children, deepen your impact on them in the area of sexuality and help shape your child’s character.
“Why start early? Because if you as a parent are not teaching your kids about sexuality, they are learning distorted lessons about it from television, the Internet, and playground conversations…If you start now in teaching godly, truthful, tactful, and appropriate lessons about sexuality, your children will trust you more and see you as a mother or father who tells the truth!”
The above information are excerpts taken from the introduction of God’s Design for Sex series.
Book 1 Ages 3-5 The Story of Me
Book 2 Ages 5-8 Before I was Born
Book 3 Ages 8-11 What’s the Big Deal?
Book 4 Ages 11-14 Facing the Facts
Authors: Stan and Brenna Jones

We believe parents need to be their child's primary sex educator. "First messages are the most powerful…Why not establish yourself as the trusted expert to whom your children can turn to find out God’s truth about sexuality.”
Today, more than ever before, parents with children in public schools need to be involved and equipped with information they need to understand and to confront the ideology being promoted through our schools. The Back to School for Parent's guide is a valuable and much needed resource for every parent.

Protecting Your Child in a Dark Culture
Host: Dr. James Dobson Guest: Rebecca Hagelin
When Rebecca Hagelin took her 13-year-old daughter, Kristen, for a sports physical, the female pediatrician insisted that she have a private chat with the youngster. Rebecca, the author of 30 Ways in 30 Days to Strengthen Your Family, was matter of fact, declaring, "She's a minor. I'm her mother, and I'm staying!" When the doctor told Kristen, just "do what's comfortable for you" sexually, Rebecca explained that her daughter understood that sex is only for marriage. The lesson? God gave your kids to you, Mom and Dad. Never give away your authority!
Two educators in Grants Pass (Oregon) are on leave after they started an online campaign pushing back against efforts to accommodate transgender students. North Middle School Assistant Principal Rachel Damiano and seventh-grade science teacher Katie Medart are promoting a resolution in response to an Oregon bill that would require the state to create an education plan for students who identify as LGBTQ.

Private schools are free to choose their own curriculum and set their own educational guidelines as long as they conform to a very broad set of standards issued by the state to qualify us as an educational institution.
