- Publisher Statistics show the alarming incidence of sexual promiscuity in our society and it's devastating consequences. Seventy percent of all American teens have had sex by age eighteen. On the whole, young people in the church show the some trends as unchurched kids. But statistics also show that parents are in the best position to help children establish and cultivate an internal counterpressure to resist sexual temptation. Authors Richard and Renee Durfield show how it is possible for parents to plant within their children a vision of sexual wholeness and purity that will strengthen their resolve to live with integrity-to say no to the world's view of morality and be happy about it. As the parents of four children, the Durfields developed the concept of a "key talk" between parent and child. With the parent's encouragement, the young person covenants with God to remain chaste until marriage, and the parent gives the child a ring or similar object as a token and constant reminder of the commitment. How to prepare for this talk, how to hold it successfully, and how to follow-up on it for maximum effectiveness are combined to make this a strategy that already has proven effective for many families who have been taught and counseled by the Durfields.

- Publisher Offers parents a practical strategy for supporting their teens commitment to remain chaste until marriage. The "key talk" is central.
