Absolutely lds dating
Talking about sex isn’t something we’ve reserved for a one-time Big Talk, but rather is an ongoing discussion.
I think this helped our teen come to us when they found themselves viewing something they knew was wrong.
We sat down and explained to our teens that porn is designed to capitalize on and exploit normal, healthy sexual feelings and that having a physical response to these images doesn’t mean anything on its own.
We talked with them about open and honest communication regarding boundaries in dating, and that if you are too embarrassed to have these conversations, you are not ready to proceed.
We told them they absolutely did not need to speak to anyone at church.
We explained that as their parents, talking to us was the right thing to do.
I have observed their lives and struggles, and I feel like I have come to know and understand the unique challenges they and their families face as Mormons.
Because of this experience and the relationships I have with my LGBT family and friends, I felt compelled to write this article.
