"John's suggested activities and approaches really helped us get our son (age 12) to open up. I've had the best conversations ever with my son since we started. My relationship with my son is now deeper than it's ever been."
While there are several books on parenting for purity, few if any can cover the scope of issues parents in today’s hyper-sexualized culture face. Very young children are being exposed to hard-core video pornography, even when parents do all they can to prevent exposure. Sexualized messages are everywhere. The main comment I hear from parents, especially dads, is “I don’t know what to say to my child.”
Consulting is not just for when problems arise. Consulting also helps prevent problems in the first place by training parents how to best work with their individual child.
Direct consulting helps with this problem by offering very personalized guidance for each family situation. Parent groups offer another way for parents to come up with their own strategies while hearing from other parents in similar situations.
