i'm Andrew, Lauras' son and i think its a good idea. I believe that god made sex sacred not an idea that should be tossed around and disgraced by porn and prostitution.Plus there are so many diseases out there that someone may die from and never get the chance to experience true love.

Andrew, I think it is very admirable of you. If you can copy and paste pics of what purity rings look like and give the origin of it for parents/children/young adults that would be great! :) Your mom brought you up with morals.

Andrew, so people don't confuse you with Laura1967 you should create your own profile. Saving your self for marriage is very admirable, I hope you stick to your commitment.

My daughter is still in the "Ewww Gross!" stage of things. So while we have a general or minor talk about sex each and every year, and periodically in between I'll feel out the subject of whether or not she's got a boyfriend or a crush or the like to see if I need to have to have the major talk in-between the minor talks. So far, she's still grossed out though. "Ewww!! Boys are Gross! No Mom! I don't like any of them and I don't like any girls that way either!!! Ewww!" That's the typical conversation on her end when it comes up. lol

My son is 18, and he knows that's how his dad and I led our lives, and he is thusfar leading his life the same way. He's had girlfriends, but more importantly he's got friends who are both male and female, who respect each other, not "use" each other. Now that he's in college, he sees lots of kids who were brought up with different values. I hope that he continues to make good decisions, but now he's technically an adult and I know I can't make decisions for him. My point is that learning begins with what parents teach young children at home, and actions speak louder than words. By the time kids are teens, they're going to be exposed to a lot of other influences, including drinking, drugs, etc. and they need to have a good moral foundation in place. (And it doesn't hurt to remind kids that what they see on TV or elsewhere isn't always "real" life.) Teens have to understand that you can't control what other people do, but you CAN control what you do.
