Biblical Principles for Young Children
This biblical material has practical implications for shaping the sexual character of our children in the early years. Earlier, we said that since the Bible starts with Creation, we should start there too. In these cornerstone years from infancy to kindergarten, we major on themes based on a creational understanding of our sexuality; namely, we:
- Establish that our children are loved beyond measure by you the parent and by God, their heavenly Father.
- Teach them that God intended the family to be the primary arena for the experience of life-devotion, love, and unity.
- Develop their trust in God’s Law as reliable and good.
- Convince them that their physical bodies, their sexual natures, and their capacity for sexual pleasure are all good blessings from God.
