Setting A Paradigm For Purity by Julie Hiramine
"How in the world am I supposed to tell my kids about sex?!?" That seems to be the question (and fear) on every parent’s mind. We as parents realize that if we don’t talk to our kids, the media will.

Technology Overload: A Survival Guide for Parents by Julie Hiramine
Have teens or tweens? Then undoubtedly you have been asked “Can I have or use [insert newest gadget or program here]”. You have probably answered one of two ways to this question: “I guess” (Meaning: you aren’t sure what it can do, but other kids have it, so it must be okay, right?) Or “NO!” (Meaning: you have no idea what it does or how it works and don’t have time to figure it out, so just to be safe it is an absolute no.” Parents: the reality is that the teens and tweens in this generation can use modern technology in powerful ways to further the kingdom of God, but they must be trained to use it responsibly. Even if we don’t fully understand technology, it is still our responsibility to equip them to navigate this potentially treacherous aspect of our modern lives. Join the Generations Of Virtue Team as we reveal a tried and true course for your teen and tween’s safety, while still maintaining a pure heart, mind and body. Topics include: social media, internet filtering, cell phones, music, video games, TV and movies.
