Teens & Sex—A Discussion for Parents

Teens & Sex—A Discussion for Parents

This five-session course provides a discussion on sex for parents.

Few topics are more terrifying to the Christian parent than sex, since we know that we must teach our teens to go against the flow of society in this extremely tempting area. To assist you in this, we have created a five-session course, which helps you not only talk to your teens about sex, but also to mentor them in Christ and boost their confidence in him. We have also created a companion series for your teen to work through on the same topics.

Session One

Mentor Your Teens
Lay tracks to avoid the runaway train of adolescence.
Deuteronomy 6:1–9; Philippians 2:1–11; 2 Timothy 3:10–15

It's encouraging to know that adolescence doesn't have to be a runaway train, but a discipleship adventure for which you can lay tracks now. This study will explore biblical principles for mentoring teens.

Session Two

Christian Teens and Sex
How we can help our teens deal with the temptations of sex?
John 8:3–11; 1 Corinthians 6:13b, 18–20; 10:13; Galatians 5:22–25

As much as we would like to believe that Christian teens are immune to sexual pressure, the evidence suggests that simply isn't true. So let's talk about how to "Just Say No" when sexual temptation calls.

Session Three

Sex Excess
Our society's obsession with sexuality may be a thirst only God can quench. 2 Samuel 11:2–4; 12:9, 13; 1 Kings 11:1–4; Psalm 51:1–10

Sex appears to be everywhere we look. Ads constantly bombard us with the notion that we will be irresistible if we purchase the product being promoted. But are our sexual desires a thirst that can be quenched only by Jesus?

Session Four

Too Intimate Too Soon
The adult search for intimacy is trickling down to our children, but they cannot cope with it.
Deuteronomy 6:6–9; Proverbs 22:6; Matthew 18:2–6; Mark 10:2–9

Most people have a desire for intimacy, yet the divorce rate alone shows that intimacy is not easy for adults. How has today's sexual ethic affected teenagers? And how can the church counteract these effects?

Session Five

Model Self-Confidence for Your Teens
Move your teens from being self-focused to being God-focused.
Luke 11:1–13; Acts 2:41–47; Philippians 2:3–11

Our culture has perfected the put-down. This study will explore how to foster a God-centered self-concept in our teens.
