I wanted to share something with you. I'm pretty sure that Ridor will be angry at the Christians, excuse me: Xigans as he calls them, for all of this. But I wanted to be fair and let this be up to your own decisions about the nature of this information.
I got from a friend of mine: http://www.missionamerica.com/ . This web page explains about "The Day of Silence" and has links to a web page called "Day of Truth" : http://www.dayoftruth.org/main/default.aspx
Before we start going into an overkill of Bible stuff, I want parents to realize something. Before you start pushing your religion on your teenage kids' throats, I want you to put yourself in their shoes and walk MORE THAN A MILE IN IT! It's their life and it's their decision about what to do with their personal sex lives. Teens will want to hear both sides of the issues of about sex. From the school and from the parents / religious community.
But if you , Christian parents, keep on withyour "LISTEN TO US..WE KNOW WHAT IS BETTER FOR YOU THAN THE SCHOOL DOES!" mantra to their kids, then get ready for a life time of disappointment when the kids make a decision, rebellion is faster than microsecond of thinking.
This day in the public schools won't be just a "Day of Silence or Day of Truth". It should be called "Decision of the Student's PERSONAL LIFE DAY". That's what it's about. It's asking students to focus on God, being straight, and praying for marriage. It's also a decision day about accepting Christ as their savior or not. It's a day that makes a personal decision of what they want to be sexually. While the impacts are full of religious overtones, people need to be civil and be open minded on that very day.
I want to remind parents one thing: Do not take your kid out of public school that day unless you got a real and LEGAL reason for doing that. Schools will be watching attendance records from the prospective home rooms and I have absolutely no doubt that truant officers will be on duty full time that day. They don't need a black mark on their attendance record showing up on their future college applications.
So take some good advice parents: A week before this "Day of Silence or Day of Truth" happens in April, have a sit down family talk about SEX with your kids. Make it an open and honest discussion. But in saying that, let your kids take control of where the discussion goes about sex. Without forcing any religious doctrine on them (other than showing some bible verses if they want to see), I'll bet you that they will be listening carefully to what you say because they've watched you since the day they were born.
By the time the "day" rolls around in April, they'll be the ones to ask some important questions to their teachers in order to make their personal decisions with all the information that they hear for themselves.
So, to get this discussion going for the teens, Here's a chick tract that has some GREAT animations. The tract is called "This Was Your LIFE!". Worth to see it! Link: http://mychwc.org/ThisWasYourLife.html
