Teach children and youth the eternal truths about sexual intimacy in a world of shifting values and ideas. With expert advice and anecdotal examples from a licensed marriage and family therapist, learn how to teach the importance of the proper time for intimacy using the unique analogy of ice cream. Just as premature exposure to ice cream in infancy can have long-term effects, so can pre-marital sexual experience have long-term consequences. Timely and informative, this book is a must-read for parents, teachers, and leaders.
