It's the summer before Junior High. Yes, we homeschool, but starting in August Funny Bunny will be in a co-op with other 7th graders and she will move up to Youth at church with 7th-12th graders. I want her to be prepared and equipped for whatever situations she may face.
I had been researching the best resource to use when I came across Passport2Purity by Family Life. Passport2Purity equips parents with a step-by-step God centered program that ensures a life-changing weekend with your preteen.
Now my daughter is very resistant to "growing up". She wants to stay young forever and still loves to "play" with her dolls. I'm very thankful for that! I recognize, however, that she is living in a very different world than I grew up in. Regardless of her resistance to hearing about how her body is changing, boys, dating, and peer pressure, she needs to know about it. We had already discussed a few things, but there were still some very important topics I had avoided until now.
Passport2Purity covers it all and takes the pressure off the parents.
The Getaway Kit includes:
* 1 Tour Guide for the parent
* 1 Travel Journal for the preteen including 25 follow-up devotions
* 8 CDs containing 5 sessions, scripture memory songs and downloadable MP3s
The Sessions are as follows:
* Session 1: Beginning the Journey - Challenges, Traps, and Choices
* Session 2: Running with the Herd - Friendships and Peer Pressure
* Session 3: Ready for an Upgrade? - Changes to Him, Changes to Her
* Session 4: Destination: Le Pure - Setting Boundaries
* Session 5: Crossing the Date Line - Seeing Dating Differently
A Friday night to Saturday night is recommended to complete the program, but due to our schedule, I planned our trip out a little differently. I booked one night at a nearby hotel and our trip lasted from a Wednesday afternoon to Thursday afternoon. We listened to the CDs together, she worked on her journal, we talked, completed the projects, and we shopped, ate dinner out, and spent a late night watching a movie and painting nails.
Below you can see Funny Bunny is coloring in her journal while we listen to the CDs. Notice the chocolate bar and Vitamin Water. Two of her favorite things! The morning concluded with breakfast and a Double Chocolaty Chip Frappuccino. :)
We had a fun time, but there was definitely some resistance, especially during Session 3. Once that was behind us though, it was smooth sailing. We had a lot of great conversation and it is a time that we will always remember.
