In this episode, Matt and Jenn offer advice to a listener about talking to children about the awkward topic of masturbation.

  1. Understandably, as parents, it is confusing and challenging for us to know how to guide our kids when it comes to teaching them about their sexuality and, specifically, about masturbation.
  2. To be clear, the Bible does not speak specifically about solo masturbation so, this is not a simple “yes” or “no.” conversation with our kids. Therefore, it is most important to teach about the principles that might guide thoughts and behaviors related to masturbation, such as sexual lust.
  3. We must teach our children to understand their sexuality through a holy lens and equip them with tools to productively channel their sexual energy, desires, and curiosities.

Also in this episode, we referenced some books to help prepare kids for the inevitable exposure to pornography:

  • Good Pictures Bad Pictures: Porn-Proofing Today's Young Kids
    by Kristen A. Jenson (Author), Debbie Fox (Illustrator)
  • Good Pictures Bad Pictures Jr.: A Simple Plan to Protect Young Minds
    by Kristen A. Jenson (Author) & Debbie Fox (Illustrator)
