Every parent fears having “the talk.”
What many parents fail to realize is that one conversation isn’t enough. Our kids desperately need help and guidance to successfully navigate the sexually-charged culture in which they live. If they are going to make wise choices, our kids must be equipped and prepared. This is a job that belongs to parents. We must learn to talk comfortably and honestly with them about sex, relationships, and so much more.

Providing guidance for parents of both younger children and teenagers, The Talk(s) will help you and your kids to develop a plan for making wise choices.
Most parents have a sense that something isn’t right about the morally neutral sexual climate in which their kids are growing up. But they don’t know how to help them. The Talk(s) will change that.

Here's what others are saying about The Talk(s):
“Caught between a world that says ‘Do it!’ and a church that says ‘Don't do it!’ without explaining why, our kids are floundering. They need more than just the purity talk. The Talk(s) gives you just the blueprint you need to start a lifelong conversation with your kids about intimacy, relationships, and even great sex!”
Sheila Wray Gregoire, Author of The Good Girl's Guide to Great Sex

“Do you want your children to avoid the sexual and relationship mistakes you made when you were young? It won't happen by accident. It won't happen with wishful thinking. You need a plan! Barrett Johnson's The Talk(s) will help you engage your children with loving, practical, and biblical conversations – not just to guide them away from the disastrous consequences of sexual sin and secrets – but to help prepare them NOW for a joyous and godly future marriage and family of their own.”

“With the tidal wave of secular mainstream culture constantly pressing in on our teens and pre-teens, The Talk(s) equips parents with the tools they need to fight this battle, and win. Barrett (and Jenifer) Johnson boldly and confidently address the conversations parents need to have with their children, sooner rather than later. I recommend it highly.”

“Passing our faith and values down to our kids and setting them up for a successful future is a daunting task in today's culture. It doesn't happen by accident. We must be intentional in our parenting, yet many moms and dads struggle with how to do it--especially in the areas of dating and sex. The Talk(s)is a solid, simple and straightforward guide that will assist even the most apprehensive of parents.
Pastor Mark Gungor, Author of Laugh Your Way to a Better Marriage
"For over 22 years, I have coached ambitious individuals to maximize their God-given potential by living prayerfully and purposefully with a clear action plan.Unfortunately, few parents have given much thought to intentionally coaching their kids to navigate their sexuality. This omission has far-reaching consequences. Now there is a solution. The Talks provides the ‘what to do’ and ‘how to do it’ so we can effectively equip our kids to make wise choices in a sexually-charged world.”
Tommy Newberry, Author of The New York Times bestseller, The 4:8 Principle
“Even though our culture is becoming more open sexually, many parents are burying their heads in the sand and becoming increasingly passive. Barrett’s book challenges and equips parents to get comfortable talking with their kids about making wise choices. And it points parents and kids to Jesus Christ as the ultimate source of healing and restoration for past mistakes and regrets. And best of all, Barrett and Jenifer live out what they teach in their home and their ministry to families.”
