155. Interpreting the World's Messages for Your Child - a Guarding Their Hearts
Show Notes

The world is sending SO MANY messages to our hearts.  As adults, we know to filter those messages and to guard our minds, but kids have a harder time doing that.  In episode 155 of the Practically Speaking MOM Podcast, I am introducing a new series - a series in which we will look at many of the world's messages and identify how to talk with our children about them.  Episode 155 is about being an INTERPRETER of the world's messages to our kids about their hearts and bodies and romantic relationships.  The series that I am introducing is three weeks of mother/daughter conversations that begin next week about our TOP THREE BOOKS for teens to guard their hearts.  These are books that I had my daughter read beginning in upper middle school but they are not kids books. They are for teens and young adults to help make decisions about standards regarding treasuring purity, honoring marriage, and so much more.  The three weeks that we talk about these books are very lively discussion. This week is setting the stage for those three weeks.  This week is about being an interpreter for our kids about the messages of the world.

Guarding your child's heart and equipping them to do the same is one of the reoccurring themes on the Practically Speaking MOM Podcast. For more on this topic, be sure to take a look at the following episodes.  Just click on the green links below to listen:
