Recently, Albert Mohler aired a show on his radio program focusing on a secular study of pre-marital sex in young people. I listened to this on my ipod and I stronly encourage it for any parent. The synopsis from his own website says this:
The media has been abuzz about new research suggesting that abstinence pledges have little impact on the actual behavior of teenagers. However, a number of commentators have recently pointed out that much of the reporting missed one critical point: teenagers from conservative religious families clearly do delay sexual activity. On today’s program, Dr. Mohler discusses the research and how Christian parent should guide and instruct their children on this subject.
Most exciting and interesting for me was the discovery from this study that teenagers with parents who were actively involved in their lives were much more likely to keep themselves sexually pure.
