Question for everyone. Please share your experiences of masturbation as a child and teenager. Did your parents ever talk to you about it? Did you feel guilty? Were there some times you felt it was done as a result of sinful lust, and other times it seemed ok?
As a parent, have you talked to your children about masturbation? Would your advice differ between a son and daughter?
From my own experiences as a young man growing up, I feel strongly that this is something parents should discuss with their kids. Letting your son or daughter “figure things out” with no guidance on the subject is setting them up the potential for years of unnecessary guilt or on the flipside, regretful addictions and struggles with porn, etc.
As a young father, I want to give my kids a Godly view of sexuality.
Thanks in advance for your thoughts!
