Free homeschool podcast about the purity movement.This week on the Best of Homeschooling IRL:  Sheila Gregoire is the author of the book, The Good Girl’s Guide To Great Sex. She is also a popular speaker and blogger at To Love Honor and Vacuum.

Sheila joins us in the studio again this week as we discuss the phenomenon that is the “purity culture” and its affect on the Christian homeschooling community.

How do we convey a Biblical view of sex and marriage to our kids without strapping them with the burden and bondage of religious behaviorism? How can we equip them to enter into marriage with a healthy, godly view of sex and what it contributes to a marriage?

Join us for a lively and helpful discussion on the purity culture.

Talking Sex With Sheila Gregoire – HIRL Episode 117

Free Homeschool podcast about sex and intimacy in your marriage.DISCLAIMER: WE DEAL WITH MATURE TOPICS ON THIS EPISODE; DECIDE IF YOUR LITTLE ONES SHOULD LISTEN ALONG.

In Episode 115, we answered a listener’s email and discussed sex education for parents with Barrett and Jenifer Johnson.  Your emails and comments started pouring in. We are realizing that there are many couples out there who just don’t know how to talk about sex in a healthy, informed way.

To that end, we are diving back into the topic of sex and marriage and asking ourselves a few more questions. We are joined in the studio by Sheila Gregoire: author, speaker, and blogger from the website To Love, Honor and Vacuum. Together we tackle some of the honest questions and issues our listeners asked for.

We know this won’t be the end, but we hope this show points you back to your spouse and opens the door for honest conversations that you can have out loud together about sex and intimacy.

Sex Ed For Parents, Part 1 – HIRL Episode 115

Free homeschool podcast about marriage and sexualityDISCLAIMER: WE DEAL WITH MATURE TOPICS ON THIS EPISODE; DECIDE IF YOUR LITTLE ONES SHOULD LISTEN ALONG.

On previous episodes we have encouraged you to talk with your kids about sex, but how do you have that conversation if you don’t know how to talk about it as a couple?

How do you have emotional conversations out loud with your spouse? How do you voice dissatisfaction or discouragement with your sex life? What do you do when you are too embarrassed to talk about intimate subjects with each other?

We tackle a troubling question from a listener who wants us to kickstart the conversation about talking to your spouse about sex. Joining us are some of our favorite guests, Barrett and Jenifer Johnson, authors of The Talks. They walk with us through this tricky topic and hopefully we will all find new tools for beginning a conversation about sex with your spouse.

When Your Kid Discovers Porn – HIRL Episode 114

Free homeschool podcast discussing what to do when your kid discovers pornography.DISCLAIMER: WE DEAL WITH MATURE TOPICS ON THIS EPISODE. DECIDE IF YOUR LITTLE ONES SHOULD LISTEN ALONG.

What do you do when your kid stumbles upon pornography?

Most of us homeschool for a reason, but we assume that the vast majority of us are homeschooling because we take our responsibility of shepherding our children very seriously. With all of the safe guards in place it is nearly impossible to protect your children from pornography in this sex saturated culture.

On this episode we tackle a question from a listener who wants us to talk about what to do when your young child accidentally discovers pornography.

We invited our favorite guests Barrett and Jenifer Johnson, author of The Talks, to walk through this topic with us. We answer the following questions: Should we have safeguards? What do we do when they fail? How do we recover? What about boys vs. girls? HIRLers you don’t want to miss this show! Real answers from real parents about really tricky topics.

MBFLP – Talking To Your Kids About Sex

It’s a difficult thing for most parents – gathering the courage to have “The Talk” with our children. Why can’t we just wait until they’re more grown up? Can’t we shield them from the sexualized culture so they can stay innocent until they’re adults? How in the world do we even start the conversation? This episode, Hal talks with Luke Gilkerson, the Educational Resource Director for Covenant Eyes, a ministry dedicated to teaching and protecting a Biblical view of sex, purity, and personal integrity. You won’t want to miss this one —

Let’s Talk Sex…Again – HIRL Episode 21

HIRL-Episode-21.jpgIt seems that we can’t stop talking about sex! This week’s episode is our response to Episode 16: How Do I Talk to My Kids About Sex?, where we heard from several young adults who shared how their parents failed or succeeded in teaching them about sex. This time we also respond to a few parents who wrote in to share their opinions on the subject.

We return to the phone line with our friend, Barrett Johnson from I.N.F.O for Families and get more of his insight from his book, The Talks: A Parents Guide to Critical Conversations About Sex, Dating and Other Unmentionables.

Lastly, Fletch interviews a public high school health teacher and learns something you might just find surprising.

Join us as we follow-up the discussion from Episode 16. We respond to your comments and interview Barrett Johnson again.

How Do I Talk To My Kids About Sex? – HIRL Episode 16

HIRL-Episode-16Sex. The one topic that seems to leave us questioning our parenting, pushing a lot of us into an embarrassing presentation of the basics with our kids.
We’ve discovered that so many of us don’t like the way our own parents talked to us about sex, or we feel like they gave us no boundaries at all, and now we’re just stymied. Most of us think, “I didn’t realize this was going to be so difficult.”
Join us as we interview more than a dozen young adults about how the topic of sex education was handled in their homes while growing up, and listen as return guest Barrett Johnson encourages us to raise kids with courage and boldness.
