How To Teach Your Children About Marriage’ Guide

“Why is this guide even necessary?” you may be thinking. “My children already know about marriage.”

We praise God if this, indeed, is the case.

However, we continue to hear from thousands of parents who have been confronted with the culture’s distorted views of sexuality ―and now marriage. So, we want to make sure you’re well-equipped to answer the tough questions about intimacy, as well as to reiterate the truth about God’s design for marriage.

Now, more than ever, Christians must be committed to the health of our own marriages and intentional about raising our children to understand and honor God’s design for marriage.


We’ve created “How To Teach Your Children About Marriage: Creative And Practical Ideas” to help you give your children a solid foundation about marriage—using both words and actions.

While there are numerous resources available to help parents talk to their children about the changes in their bodies as they go through puberty and about sex and abstinence until marriage, there are few resources for teaching children about God’s design for marriage.

From toddlers and preschoolers to younger elementary and from older elementary to middle school and beyond, this resource includes practical suggestions for imparting your values and equipping your kids to understand what marriage is and why it is so vitally important.

We hope these suggestions will inspire your own creativity, as you and your family learn and grow in your understanding of and respect for marriage.
