Gender Identity. Pornography. Hook-up culture. Same-Sex Attraction. Masturbation. Abuse.
These issues are the tip of the iceberg when it comes to what our children are being forced to
navigate at increasingly younger ages. As a parent, are you leading your family in conversations, so that your voice is the first one they hear on these sensitive issues? Do you
know what the Bible says–and doesn’t say–on the issues surrounding sexuality and gender?
Do your children know what you believe and why you believe it?
You are not alone if you feel as though you don’t know how and when to have these
conversations. Many parents worry about having “The Talk” with their children because they
are concerned about bringing it up too early, they are uncomfortable talking about sex, or they
feel unprepared to answer questions that their child might ask. In I Can’t Say That!, Dr. Gilbert
walks parents through age-appropriate conversations and teaches parents how to create a
culture of conversation through micro-conversations.
In his roles as a counselor and professor, Dr. Gilbert has heard repeatedly from young adults
that they never had conversations about the complicated issues surrounding sexuality with
their parents and they wish that they had. His motivation in I Can’t Say That! is to equip
parents with the information they need so that they can in turn equip their children to make
choices from a biblical sexual ethic.
