Review: Passport 2 Purity

July 27, 2015

Having "the talk" can make parents cringe, or at the least shy away from discussing sensitive issues with their kids. If left to the schools, other parents, or peers, our children can learn societal norms rather than biblical truths. Here is a great way to connect with our kids AND have that talk, without being left with questions about how to approach the conversation or fearing we'll say the something wrong.

Your child begins the journey into adolescence in a world of sexting, bullying, online stalking and moral defiance.  Innocence is under attack, and you cannot win the battle with a single awkward talk or a strict set of rules.  The primary defense for your child is a strong relationship with you and with God.  FamilyLife developed Passport2Purity (P2P) to assist you in building heart-to-heart communication with your preteen while laying a foundation of purity that will prepare him or her for the turbulent years ahead.  Through the shared listening experience, object lessons and guided conversations of a P2P weekend getaway, you can set your son or daughter on a journey of moral integrity - and strengthen the bond between you.  It is designed to be used by a mother and daughter or a father and son when the child is a preteen.  It is suggested that the materials be completed over a weekend away from home, as the child may be more open to discussing the topics away from his or her normal environment.  If this isn't possible, the material can be completed over a period of four or five weeks.
While the materials kit doesn't specify age, I recommend presenting P2P when your son or daughter has reached 11-12 years old, depending on their maturity. Since my children are younger than that, we will wait another year. In our family, we have already begun telling our kids about modesty, influences of media, and peer pressure. We believe that we needed to start very early reinforcing biblical truths about why we do or don't do certain things.

The kit suggests a weekend getaway between father and son, or mother and daughter. If this works out for your family, that's wonderful. If you haven't begun to set the foundation of purity already, this material may come as a shock to some children. It's important to incorporate LOTS of fun activities during the weekend to help combat any awkwardness for them.
