Protecting the Innocence of Childhood
Safeguarding Children From Sexual Knowledge Overload
This new edition (formerly Reflections of Moral Innocence) was produced specifically for those parents who are unwilling to allow outside voices the freedom to dictate what sexual knowledge their children will hear, how they will hear it, and when they hear it. Any strategy to help children develop healthy and protective attitudes relating to their future generative powers, requires sexual knowledge to be transferred:
- Sequentially, (line upon line, precept upon precept)
- Subject to the child’s moral, emotional and intellectual age and capacity.
These are three good reasons why this specific area of training cannot be satisfied by a book, given over to the schools or transferred to youth-group leader. Only parents can create the right home environment conducive to satisfying the three learning criteria.
Protecting the Innocence of Childhood is a four part DVD series that can help any parent effectively communicate sexual knowledge to their children, in a timely manner, without overwhelming a child’s senses, or undervaluing his or her emotions. (Continue to monitor this page for updates.)
