I'm not breaking up this link, this 'product' is such crap!

http://www.familylife.com/site/c.dnJHKL ... Purity.htm

From the site:

How do I talk to my kids about purity if I was sexually active as a teenager?

If your child does ask a pointed question, we recommend that you not give a complete answer—at least for now. Here's a suggested response: "That's a good question and someday when you are an adult and more mature, I want to answer you more fully. But for now, that information is off limits."

If your child is not satisfied and persists, you may want to admit that "I made some mistakes I really regret"—but not share further details. It's better if children do not know that much about the failures of their parents when they are young. Continue to hold up a high standard and don't be a stumbling block. (See Romans 14:13.)

In other words, the makers of passport2purity believe that children age 10-15 are dumb, and can't read between the lines when parents give an evasive answer.

My favorite part? Take your kid away for the weekend so they can't escape the indoctrination.

Dennis and Barbara Rainey are the twits peddling this product. Purity ring is not included. I googled Dennis and Barb, as the names rang a bell. http:// www. familylife dot com

In other words, Passport2Purity recommends the parents lie. This is not a good way to have a relationship with your child. Kids are not stupid and they know when they're being fed a line.

Oh for crying out loud. If the kid is old enough to have the mind to 'ask a pointed question', s/he is old enough to need to know the answer--and to know when the parent is avoiding the question.

Little Rock has been infiltrated by Family Life for a number of years now, when they opened their HQ there. They have utterly spoiled the homeschooling atmosphere there with this bullshit.

My kids will not get an evasive answer from me. I don't believe my sexual history is something to be ashamed of.

Yes, because heaven forbid you be honest with your children.

Seriously, what's wrong with these people? Okay, I don't really look forward to telling my daughters that I was pressured into sex at 16 by a boyfriend who was a physical and emotional bully, but if it helps them avoid the same mistakes? You better believe I'll let them know.

Though I suppose they're very invested in the idea that Mommy and Daddy are perfect, since the parents are to control every aspect of the kids' lives.

      Planning on scheduling my ankle surgery around Trump's Georgia trial - if I'm forced to be off my feet, I might as well be entertained.

      Stupid loneliness!
      Kid 1 went back to college (yeah! But sad foe me, she stayed with me all summer. It was nice to start a new phase in our mother/daughter relationship)
      Zero prospects on dates. (Not that I have tried online dating, scared of that but I have reached put to a new group at church, etc.
      I asked a friend to go to dinner the other night so I wasn't eating alone, again. The friend had plans, all my friends always have plans. I see stuff on social media, I'm never invited. I'm single, I'm the 3rd or 5th wheel.
      My one parent friend at kid 2's fall sport won't be there because their daughter made varsity (Yeah for her!!! Seriously happy for her. Sad for me for another sport I basically sit alone, did that majority of spring and summer sporting events.)
      And now I'm crying as my mom told me 2 different funny stores that former teachers remembered about my twin. Both stories were about how they got a crack out of my twin's antics (my parents went to a funeral today and saw former colleagues). Teachers remember me (after all I was a twin and teachers' kid) but none would have memorable stories of me. 
      I feel invisible. 
      Don't worry, this will pass,  it always does. I just need a pity party for a few days. I'm not in anyway going to harm myself. As lonely as I am, I have a very full life I (usually) love. I just needed to vent and cry for a moment. 
      If you are still reading this, thanks Fjer. 😊

      Absolutely awful about the fires on Maui. In 2019, I stayed in Lahaina. I liked to sit on the sea wall, which is the only structure left now, and watch the water. People are receiving help, but many had to leave pets. Please donate to the Maui Humane Society, which is leading efforts to find, treat, and reunite pets.

      Nebraska’s new football coach, who is involved in an organization called Man Up Ministries, labels certain players “Alphas” and sometimes “extreme Alphas” and the local paper has a nice piece on why people objecting to the term “alpha male” are wrong and it has a “nice ring”. 🤮🤮🤮🤮
