Above All Else, Guard Your Heart and the Future You Really Want! (A Sex- Ed Supplement)
This 3-lesson curriculum supplement encourages students to focus on their future. Despite recent trends, most young adults still want a happily-ever-after relationship (marriage), children-that-thrive and financial stability. Does what modern culture present as sexually permissible for teens, be beneficial for this future? Research reveals that certain choices and experiences strengthen or weakens the odds of getting to the future their heart desires. When beliefs are based on facts, not trends or feelings, students are better equipped to make future-focused decisions that guard their hearts for the future they really want. This program could be part of a comprehensive sex education, health, marriage & family life, child development or career development program or part of programming for youth development organizations such as FCCLA, Youth Group or 4-H.
