The 4th episode of the Ownership Road Podcast is out and it is a doozy. My conversation is with Tal Prince, a Christian counselor and expert on sex addition. For almost an hour, we talk about everything from defining sex addition to how parents can talk about issues of sex to their children. I think the best quote (and there were many) from Tal, was this:
“Parents must be the first and primary source that kids come to for information, particularly about sex and sexuality…and if you lie to them…they are going to find out the truth…then, they are going to go to Google, and Google is not going to tell them, Google is going to show them.”
This sums it up for us as parents. As hard and uncomfortable as it might be, we must be the ones to talk about sex and sexuality with our kids, because if we do not, Google will. And we don’t want that.
