Who Is Teaching Your Kids Morals?


When children reach the age of two, most parents start potty training them. They also teach them how to work, how to eat with a spoon, how to ride a bike, how to study, and how to solve problems. When it comes to teaching kids about sex many parents shy away. Whose responsibility is it to teach kids about sex and morals?

Do Not Rely On the Schools and Magazines
We all know that there is right conduct and there is wrong conduct (morals). Many people find these morals in the bible. That's the number one place to find them. Teaching kids morals helps them to avoid making lots of mistakes in life. They'll make better choices.

Sure the schools try to teach kids about sex. Yet they do not teach them right from wrong. They pass out condoms (this encourages safe sex). The media teaches it (anything goes). Many teen magazines and books encourage safe sex as well. Most times when I see a teen magazine, I see some type of sexy picture on the front of the cover, and some of the topics encourage dating and flirting.

Find Reliable Resources
Just as parents are responsible for teaching their kids how to walk, use the potty and eat with a spoon, they're also responsible for teaching them about morals (sex). Even if the parents were not raised with morals, they can still try their best to instill morals in their children. The key here is to find reliable resources that you agree with. Not all resources are reliable and agreeable. You can never go wrong with the Bible.

Don't Wait Until They're Teenagers
It's best to instill morals in our children at an early age. It can be hard if we wait until they're teenagers. Another thing we want to keep in mind is, we teach by example. It can be rather hard if we're telling our kids one thing yet we're doing another. They'll look at us as being hypocritical. I always ask my kids, "Do you see me doing that?" My family relies on the Bible. When my kids were younger, I'd purchase fun books for them to read. These books also taught them good behavior. We found a lot of the stories to be funny!

So parents start now teaching your kids morals. Those morals will stay with them for the rest of their lives. Even if they don't apply them, they'll remember them. They just may pass them on to their kids. The worst we can do is leave it up to others to teach them.

Thanks for reading!

  6. Wow. This is an excellent article. I understand that parents, especially Asian parents tend to shy away from sex-related topics. It's like some sort of taboo to us.

    Such mentality can actually have severe consequences on the youngsters. I know this because I'm one of the many youths that learn about sex, first hand, from porn.

    You have no idea how many of my fellow schoolmates ended up being 'unwilling parents', often going for abortion or just killing off their newborn babies, just so that they could have sex over and over again.
