Essential Resources for Your Family - On Sale Now!
The world that our kids are growing up in is radically different than the one that most parents knew. Rapid changes in technology (and the smartphones in most of our kids’ pockets) have introduced an entire generation to a variety of perspectives on sexuality and relationships.
According to Chap Clark of the Fuller Youth Institute, 60% of our teenagers are addicted to porn. More than a third of them have “sexted.” With the average age of exposure to hard-core porn now at around 10 years old, we cannot afford to be silent on issues of a sexual nature. And in a post-Harvey Weinstien world, the stakes are higher than ever before.
Twenty years ago, it was parents who were trying to protect their kids from explicit content. Unfortunately, in our world today, it is typically teenagers who are trying to protect their parents from seeing the things they are seeing. The world has truly changed.
All of this begs the question:
As a parent, what are you doing to help your kids to navigate our hyper-sexualized culture?
You probably sense that something is wrong, but you may not know what to do about it. How do you have these critical conversations with your kids? And when? And how do you help the talks to not to be so awkward? Parents like you need help. Thankfully, we are committed to equipping you to step boldly into some talks that you have probably been putting off for a while.
At I.N.F.O. for Families, we are experts on getting parents and teens comfortable talking about uncomfortable topics. We create the exact resources you have been looking for.
And right now, EVERYTHING IS ON SALE!
Our ground-breaking book, The Talks, has helped more than 25,000 parents equip their kids to develop a healthy view of sex and relationships.
Perfect for parents with kids aged everywhere from 4-18, it provides biblical and practical help for getting families comfortable talking about the birds and the bees, social media, dating, porn, sexual abuse, and even marriage. It covers absolutely EVERYTHING.
“The Talk(s) 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”
Our innovative resource for teen boys, The Young Man’s Guide to Awesomeness, has given thousands of guys the tools they need to make wise choices about porn, girls, and the direction of their lives.
It is also the perfect way to “tee up” these important (but sometimes awkward) conversations in your home. The “guide” covers three main themes: how to guard your heart (sexual purity), get the girl (principles for relating to the opposite sex), and save the world (keys to building a life of significance).
The book has an easy-to-read format, lots of art, and 25 QR codes that connect to videos that will enhance your son’s reading experience. There are also great discussion questions as the end of every chapter so that parents can engage in the process.Now,
“Real transformation in our kids often comes from shared experiences with meaningful conversations. This incredible resource gets fathers and sons talking.” - David Robbins, President of FamilyLife
Reading it, my son said, "He really knows how to write!" What a compliment from a 17 year old guy!! Thank you for taking hard subjects and making them teen boy friendly. Don't buy this book--buy 10 and give one to every teen guy you know.” - Children’s Minister from Kentucky
Our newest book, Meet Me in the Middle, offers a God-focused perspective about 10 key issues that teen girls are facing.
And it does it in a format that invites a girl’s father into the conversation. Meet Me in the Middle is actually two-books-in-one. Start on one side and it’s a book for girls aged 12-19. It addresses 10 important issues like friends, beauty, guys, sex, porn, identity, and a girl's relationship with God.
If you flip the book over and start from the back side (half the book is upside-down), it’s a book for dads, covering the same topics from a different perspective. Ideally, father and daughter will read the book one chapter at a time, passing it back and forth to each other. Then, each chapter concludes with discussion questions and daddy-daughter date ideas designed to keep them talking.
Finally, the two books literally “meet in the middle” where dad and daughter will find a commitment they can make to stay close, even through the challenging years of her adolescence (and dad’s crazy middle-age).
