What the Culture is NOT Telling Your Daughter About Sex

Yesterday, my 13-year-old daughter, Kaylee, and I were at a store buying some essentials to put into a care package for my husband (who is in Afghanistan). While we were there, I stopped by the large magazine rack to see if there were any fitness magazines that he might want or need (he is about to launch a fitness blog). Kaylee asked if she could get a fashion magazine. She is extremely interested in fashion and has even made noises about maybe becoming a fashion designer (the fashion industry could really use a Christian influence – heh.) Before I realized it, she had a copy of Cosmopolitan in her hand. Right on the front cover was: The Sex Quiz You Must Take.

The Culture’s Message: Sex is Great! Why Wait?

Shopping at the mall Thanksgiving weekend, I saw a sight that broke my heart. A little girl of approximately six or seven years old in pigtails and Mary Janes was sitting on the ledge of a store’s window front. She was all innocence and bubblegum bubbles, and was laughing at a baby in a stroller. In the window above her head was a Victoria’s Secret model, looking up with a seductive look at the camera above her, that looked down the exposed cleavage of the barely covered up breasts, her torso bare down to a very skimpy pair of panties.

Seeds of Faith: Boy, Oh Boys!

This past week, in public school, my 8th grade daughter learned how to properly put a condom on a partner and was given instructions on how to choose a good brand. Did I mention that this was done in a co-ed class environment?

Seeds of Faith: The Friendship Factor

Posted by Hallee on Nov 6, 2010 in Christian Faith, converstations, Parenting, Raising girls, Raising teens

Most of us go into parenting completely oblivious to what is ahead. We think that we will be the best parents on the planet – the ones who always know where their children are and who they’re with. We look at child abductions and crimes against children, drug and alcohol abuse by children, pregnant teens, eating disorders, and think, “Not MY child.”

Seeds of Faith: Girlhood Interrupted

Posted by Hallee on Oct 16, 2010 in Christian Faith, converstations, Parenting, Raising girls, Raising teens

We exist in a culture that seems to set out to make our children into adults earlier and earlier in their life. They are bombarded with messages and images that cry out to them to leave childhood behind and make adult decisions, to dress like adults, to act like adults.

Seeds of Faith: Redefining Beauty

Posted by Hallee on Oct 2, 2010 in Christian Faith, converstations, Parenting, Raising girls, Raising teens

My husband and I went through a spiritual revival about 18 months ago. Part of that revival was cleaning out what we take in. I don’t mean food. I mean all of our sensory input: television, movies, games, music, internet, radio, etc. We stopped consuming sin, in a way to quit condoning so much sin in our culture.

Seeds of Faith: The Media

Posted by Hallee on Sep 19, 2010 in Biblical womanhood, Christian Faith, converstations

This chapter thoroughly touches on all areas of media, from magazine articles to lyrics in music, to television shows and commercials, and how these areas in our lives continually and constantly sexually objectify women. You can’t watch a college football game without a scantily clad model touting a beer brand. You can’t watch a crime show on television without a scene in a bar with naked pole dancers kissing each other.
