Ep. 186 Preparing our boys for dating and future relationships
Highlights from Boy Mom Chapter 12: Young Love: Relationships and Dating.
In this episode we are talking about how we can approach the topic of dating and relationships as our sons grow up. I talk about how we have handled things with our sons, focusing on Biblical values and wisdom principles, not a set of rules. I share some resources we use for teaching our kids about sexuality, and the importance of having many conversations about even the awkward topics as our kids grow up.
Many more highlights found in this episode and in Chapter 12 of Boy Mom. Be sure to get the free printable download: “Before He Asks Her Out” (a list of questions to go over with your son when he feels he is ready to date) below!
