Parenting and Protecting Daughters in America’s Sexual Culture

An excerpt from Girls Uncovered, a new book I helped write.

While it can be unnerving to watch your little girl grow up in America’s sexual culture, take heart and remember that when it comes to influencing children, you have the advantage. Teachers, youth workers, media, peers, church-none of these can rival the influence that is given to parents who are with their children year after year. In one sense, this long-term relationship earns parents the right to communicate values to their children. Further, parents can take into account their adolescent’s particular personality and sensitivities, as well as maturity-socially, emotionally, physically, and morally.

You can also find this excerpt at The Christian Post.
