Thomas Nelson Teaching True Love to a Sex-at-13 Generation

Despite promise rings, abstinence commitments, and youth group purity pep talks, many of today's Christian kids are living double lives of sexual experimentation and compromise while moms and dads blithely assume all is well. It's not. From their unique "insider perspective," bestselling authors Eric and Leslie Ludy prove that it's not enough to merely tell kids to "wait." We must give them a vision of something worth waiting for. The Ludys teach parents how to impart to their teens and preteens a whole new pattern for relational success. This poignant and practical book equips parents to motivate their kids to pursue something better than the culture's version of love, prepare their kids even now for a romance that will last a lifetime and provide their kids with a training ground for future marriage successes.

I wish that all parents would know that this book exists and that they would read it and put it to practice. Both my husband and I have a whole new perspective on how to guide our children to the Lord. We should all long to let our Creator hold the pen to our life...especially our love life. Super easy to read and understand.

We're Youth Pastor's, and began reading this for our 'Relationship' series. As a parent of a teenager as well, this book is candid, and it gives us 'Christian Parents' the reality that we may not 'know the signs' of our own teen regarding relationships. I asked my Freshman some questions, and realized my own daughter is bombarded with sexual talk constantly. This book supplies us with a road map. I've read many books on Dating, but this gives a WHOLE NEW PERSPECTIVE! And our generation needs 'a new way of doing things'.

I found this book a shocking but amazing look at the world today that our kids are walking through. I am a Pastor's wife and deal with young people and wanted to be aware of what is REALLY going on in their world. And this book is IT. Anyone who counsels young people or works with 11 yrs old and up should READ THIS BOOK.

As a grandmother seeking info for grandchildren, the beginning of this book shocked me. If my grandchildren are having experiences similar to what was talked about I guess it could teach them a better way. If not it might teach them to be promiscuous.

I'm not an avid reader but I must say this book is AMAZING! My husband and I are youth pastors and this teen is a MUST READ! It is very practical and has great ways to teach your child the right way to view dating and marriage. It's a big scary to start as it gives us a glimpse of reality and what is going on but as you read you will get so encouraged and excited about the future God has for your child. If you have a child 10yrs of age or older you NEED to read this book! It's my absolute favorite!!

This is such an accurate depiction of the reality of the dangers that students face everyday in their school/play environments concerning sexuality. It is so important for parents to educate their children/students now so that they can continue to be strong in their faith and remain pure until they find their future spouse. This book not only reveals the true situations, issues, and problems that today's teens face but it also provides excellent tools and practical ideas on how to teach their children how God intended for love and sex to be between a man and a woman and how to stay pure in this culture of sexual temptation. It is for both girls and boys. This is a must read for every parent!
