During this episode of Moments with Lori and Lee Ann, both ladies dive into the difficult ideologies and viewpoints that kids face today in this crazy confusing culture. They share advice on how parents can help their children understand the difference between what is true and false regarding gender dysphoria.
- Parents need to define what truth is – it is an objective fact; it is not a feeling – feelings are subjective.
- We need to teach our children to embrace the differences in each gender – male and female, rather than becoming intolerant of those differences.
- What to do if your child comes home and says they want to change their gender or they don’t feel comfortable in their own skin anymore – the more questions you ask them about it, the more you can minimize the myth of what goes along with gender confusion.
- It is important for the parent not to freak out when a child is questioning their gender or interests – spark the conversation about their interests and preferences instead of the conversation of them wanting to change their gender.
- Celebrate their identity and gender – take the opportunity to affirm them often and early on.
- It is essential to teach children about the two worldviews before they go off to school so that they are prepared to protect their biblical worldview against the secular worldview.
- Everybody has a sin propensity, and we can teach our children to have grace and humility early on so that they understand everyone has something to work on and nobody is perfect.
- Our job is to point our children to the Lord and teach them to point others to the Lord as well; we are not to teach our children to condemn people or celebrate them when they are sinful – help them to have a balance of grace and truth.
