Successful abstinence education begins with establishing and reiterating every child’s invaluable self-worth.

Excerpts:

…Many Young People Are Learning the Hard Way

My conversation with Kimberly comes at a time where abstinence-until-marriage curricula are being dragged through the media as an archaic form of moralistic sexual repression reserved exclusively for only the most backwards cities and states.

The Trump administration was chastised for its hire of pro-abstinence education leader Valerie Huber, and more recently for ending federal funding for a number of “teen pregnancy prevention” programs under the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

It should be noted that “teen pregnancy prevention” is a remarkably pliable term and can include harmful curricula that don’t focus on self-worth or developing healthy boundaries.

If teens aren’t learning that mistakes have consequences, how are they to truly comprehend deciding to have sex this weekend at a party can affect their health, future fertility, and future families?

…Lost amid this battle is the one message teenagers need above all: that they are worthy of a love that is unconditional and comes without the cost of their body.

What Does Affirming Sex Ed Look Like?

Successful abstinence education begins at the root, establishing and reiterating the child’s invaluable self-worth. If the child isn’t aware of how incredibly worthy he or she is as a person, regardless of what his or her life has been like, then the message may be lost.

Once young people understand their self-worth then naturally their standards for choosing a partner must rise. No longer will just anyone suffice. No longer will the student be readily willing to give up his or her body to just anyone.

Now there is worth, purpose, and dignity. These very factors also help them develop healthy relationships.

… Many of my students thank me for telling them that abstinence is an option, that they don’t have to have sex to be loved, and that they can wait for the right person, their future husband or wife!
