What if talking to your kids about SEX didn't need to be so AWKWARD?

Introducing The Whole Story: your guide to talking to your kids about sex, puberty, and growing up.

Do you find talking to your kids about sex, puberty, and relationships to be one of the scariest parts of parenting?

You’re in the right place!

We’ve created a course that can help YOU have those conversations with your kids–without it being so scary.

The Whole Story for Boys officially launches October 29th!

But we’re putting BOTH versions of The Whole Story on sale NOW only during the pre-launch period!

Order during our pre-launch phase and you’ll get a great price and the chance to further shape the parenting materials to be exactly what you need help with.

I am so happy because I was extremely uncomfortable talking about these things as a child/teen and I too want better for my daughter. The course really helped us to make open and honest discussions on these subjects a part of our relationship.

The Whole Story for Girls

Most parents feel woefully unprepared to talk to their children about sex.

Nervous Woman - The Whole Story: A Puberty Course for Parents and Teens

What if I say something wrong?

How do I even get the conversation started?

I just find it really uncomfortable!

man scared - The Whole Story: A Puberty Course for Parents and Teens

And because we feel so scared, too often we make it uncomfortable for our kids, too!

But what if you had HELP starting that conversation?

What if your GIRLS could hear about the hard stuff from “funny big sisters?”

And what if your BOYS had a cool and trustworthy young man who wasn’t afraid to talk about the hard stuff?

What if all you had to do was CONTINUE the conversation, when the hard part was already taken care of?

This video-based course features trustworthy, Christian young people teaching your children about everything they need to know about sex, puberty and growing up.

And then has discussion questions, checklists, and parent-child activities so that you can keep that conversation going!

Because this is too important of a conversation to leave up to chance.

The Whole Story - For Girls

The Whole Story is available for girls and boys and is split into two age groups.

Do you find yourself asking…

  • WHEN do I tell my kid WHAT? What’s age appropriate?
  • How do I even start the hard conversations about puberty or sex–let alone say words like “menstruation” or “penis”?
  • How can I make sure they know everything they need to?
  • What do I do when my KID seems embarrassed to talk about things?

Or worst of all

What if my kids realize that their parents are “doing it”?!

The younger version of the course

covers all of this!

Or do you find yourself asking:

  • How can I teach my children the real meaning behind sex?
  • How can I help them withstand peer pressure and deal with pornography and body image issues?
  • How can I help my kids have healthy worldviews towards dating and relationships?

And most of all…

How do I keep my kid talking to me at all?

The older version of the course

covers all of this!

For Boys Ages 10-13

The younger version teaches your son what to expect when it comes to physical changes, but also addresses social and spiritual development, too.

It includes everything your son needs to know about:

  • How his body is going to change and what he can do to prepare
  • What sex is and why God designed it the way he did
  • An introductory conversation about pornography
  • How to handle crushes and peer pressure in the Jr. High years
  • Inspiration to grow into a man of godly character
  • How he can take care of his body to manage all these changes

For Boys Ages 14-16

The older version gets more in-depth and talks about relationships, sex, and character on a deeper level as your son matures.

It includes everything your son needs to know about:

  • Puberty in the teenage and high school years
  • Navigating relationships with girls in the teenage years.
  • Discussions about how to handle social issues like when you discover a friend is having sex, bullying, and how to treat girls with respect.
  • Candid conversation about the highly sexualized world we live in and how to honor God in the midst of that.
  • Challenges to take charge of where your life is going–questions like “What kind of person am I becoming, and is that the person God made me to be?”

For Girls Ages 10-12

The younger version is information based about the changes her body is going through.

It includes everything your daughter needs to know about:

  • Her period, including why it happens, how to handle it, and how to make it most comfortable.
  • Other body changes she will be experiencing, including breast development, hair growth, and body odor.
  • What sex is and how babies are made.
  • How to handle boys and peer pressure in the preteen years.
  • How to take care of your body to manage all of these changes.

For Girls Ages 13-16

The older version is more world-view based about the social changes she’s going through.

It includes everything your daughter needs to know about:

  • How to troubleshoot issues with your period that aren’t often talked about.
  • Navigating relationships with guys in the teenage years.
  • Discussions about how to handle social issues like when friends make mistakes, bullying, and online peer pressure.
  • Candid conversation about the highly sexualized world we live in and how to honor God in the midst of that.
  • Learning the skill of styling yourself to send a message–a message that honors God and shows respect for yourself and others.

The course isn’t a REPLACEMENT for you.

It’s a RESOURCE for you to start those conversations in a natural, unintimidating way, so that you can continue them for years to come.

Massconcord - The Whole Story: A Puberty Course for Parents and Teens

I sure didn’t handle talking to my daughters about sex and puberty well!

I took Rebecca, my oldest, away on a weekend when she was 10 1/2 and listened to another course. Its emphasis was on teaching purity–getting girls to promise not to have sex until they were married.

She was so grossed out she would have promised never to look at a boy again in her life!

My youngest asked for details when she was 8, and I guess I didn’t explain it well, because the next day she hugged me and said, “I’m so sorry you had to go through that to get me, Mommy, but thank you.”

Whoops. 

I also forgot to teach her to shave. Forgot to get them emergency kits in case they “leaked”. Forgot to warn them about porn. Forgot to teach them what to do when their friends started getting into trouble.

I was teaching about sex from the stage, but it was so hard when it was my own daughters!

As they got to be older teenagers we all got much more comfortable, and we’re really open now.

But we wanted to create for you the course that I wish I had had when my girls were younger–

So that you can avoid all the mistakes that I made!

(and here we are joking about it)

And that’s how The Whole Story for Girls was born.

Thank you! My oldest is 14 and we’re just treading these waters. I grew up in a “sex is bad” house and it took me a long time and a some mistakes to get over it. Praise God for His grace! Anyway, this is exactly the message I want me kids to get. Sex is wonderful and beautiful in the right context.

But we were missing something:

The Whole Story for Boys. 

After a whole inbox filled with emails asking, “When is a boy’s version coming out?” we finally have it ready!

Sheldon Neil works in Christian media and is passionate about sharing a message of encouragement and hope for young people. With all the mixed messages being thrown at them, Sheldon had a vision for this course: to help boys discover for themselves what God has to say about who they are what who they could become.

The Whole Story for Boys will teach your son everything he needs to know about growing up–but more than that, it creates the space for you to have the hard-hitting conversations about character development and spiritual growth.

These are the conversations your son needs to have. And we want to help you have them.

I took my 10 year old daughter away for the weekend and did all 5 units of the curriculum. I skipped [the sex unit] at first because I wasn’t sure she was ready but then we did the dreaded unit 4 and survived. She hit the pause button right when Rebecca explained [sex] and said “what?! I didn’t know that’s how it happened! I thought God just made you pregnant!” There were some tears but it was great and she thanked me for telling her everything and for the weekend…I know this is just the beginning for us but it’s a good start.

We did units 1-4 yesterday. It was a challenging day, with lots of laughs, questions and a few tears as my daughter processed what the pending changes would be like. I’m so grateful for the way the course opens the door for conversation and creates a ‘safe place’ for any question to be asked. We went on a special date to our local board games cafe for dinner to celebrate! Thank you Lord for Sheila, Rebecca & Katie & the gifts You’ve given them & their willingness to serve in this way.

We have officially finished the first course!! I feel so encouraged!! Conversation flowed smoothly, and we got through it all really quick because most of it was simply reviewing what we had already talked about!! I can’t believe I was actually already doing this right!! It did fill in a few holes though and hearing things about proper hygiene from Katie and Rebecca that I have been talking about for the last couple if months seems to have finally gotten through to her!! Thank you so much for this resource!! We are excited to work through the second course in a year or so!!

Are You Ready to Tell Your Child The Whole Story?

Each unit includes ready-to-watch videos that you can start with no preparation–right away!

Grow your relationship with your children, while you know that they’re learning everything they need to know–with a biblical worldview.

I found it easier to tell my girls the basics about the facts of life than I did to add the personal element to it as they grew into teens.

I told them about their periods, but talking about porn? Masturbation? Peer pressure? I wasn’t as good at that.

And I was also really frustrated with the way that the resources that I did have available were slanting the whole conversation.

The guide I used when Rebecca hit puberty was all about purity–teaching her why sex was only for marriage. But at that age (she was 10), the thought of actually doing that wasn’t even on her radar.

She didn’t need to be convinced to wait until marriage. She needed to be convinced that it was a good thing at all!

And don’t get me started on how few resources are available to talk about healthy sexuality with boys–talking about porn, sexual attraction, and lust is difficult to do without inadvertently giving your children a lot of false guilt while still giving them the information they need. But it is possible to talk about these things in a healthy way that shows them a balanced, biblical truths about sex, porn, and even how God made sexuality.

That’s why we’ve arranged this course so that, for the younger kids, it’s more information based. We tell them what is happening and why, but we leave the emotional parts until the older version. That’s when we delve into those hard topics that affect teenagers.

I found that so many kids today hit puberty when they’re still really young and before sexual feelings really start. Yet often that’s the last time parents talk to their children–when they hit puberty.

And then, when they really need us, we’ve forgotten how to have those conversations.

With The Whole Story, you can keep having those conversations!

But we don’t aim to replace you. This is just a resource to START those conversations.

Rebecca, when writing her book Why I Didn’t Rebel, found again and again that it was parents’ expectations of their children that made the biggest difference. When parents were authentic with their kids about their faith, and expected their kids to be authentic, too, then kids tended to follow Jesus easily. But when parents expected the worst, or didn’t tell the kids what they expected at all, kids tended to flounder.

Our philosophy in this course is that we’ll tell your kids the information and in general terms what God wants, but then we have discussion guidelines, checklists, and activity ideas so that you can have the real heart-to-heart with your daughter, in a stress-free way, about what guidelines you want her to have.

It’s what YOU think about modesty that matters. It’s the guidelines YOU have about dating and sex that matter.

We’re not raising your children!

It’s YOUR values that matter.

So let us start those conversations at just the right ages, and then YOU can guide those conversations home.
