I liked the emphasis on respecting yourself and taking care of your body. It touched on a lot of topics that aren’t discussed openly.

There is a lot of great lessons this book has to offer. I think the most important one is to not follow the crowd. Be your own person, and do what you want to do not what everyone else wants to do.

It's so important to be your own person and make your own decision. Teens (and adults!) are often so influenced by their peers and don't always make the decisions that are right and appropriate for themselves personally.

For me, the most important lesson is talking about sex. Talking is the only way to teach children about something, and you do not need to be "pure" in order to be "good" or healthy. I honestly think the author is wrong about putting sex on a pedestal, but I appreciate that he also talks about the importance of teaching children about sex.

What stood out for me was not following the crowd. Most of the time, we follow what everyone else is doing because we are afraid to stand out/be on the sidelines. However, we have to stop being afraid of our own uniqueness and present ourselves to the world just as we are. Differences make the world go 'round. Do what feels right or makes sense for you.

How to communicate to children about sex was the most important lesson I took away. This is a persistent issue for the majority of parents. My parents didn't start talking to me about sex until I was preparing to leave for college. I believe I now know how to approach situations differently.

I love the lessons portrayed in the book. Being a unique individual is by far more important than fitting in and following the rest of the lemmings on this Earth!

My biggest takeaway from the book is the importance of sexual purity. I loved how the author explained sexual purity and it's benefits and draws readers towards agreeing with him.

I also believe it is the little things that define us, and also that that is what makes relationships work.
I definitely agree that not following the crowd is important. Society pushes so much on us that staying true to yourself is important.

Just because everyone is doing it doesn’t mean you should; this is one of the important lessons I took from this book. Another big lesson is on sexual purity and how we can maintain it in this present day.

I like how this book linked spirituality with sex. Most people have refused to agree that there's a bond between these terms and this has cost them a lot. I like this and I think this is the most important lesson in this book.

However, Mr Morris presented little details that makes the difference. This little things defines and creates happinesss in relationships. This is the most important lesson for me.

What’s the most important lesson for you.
For me it reaffirmed that we don’t want to do Santa with our kids, our little boy is 1 and will be 2 next Christmas. He’ll definitely have more of an understanding by then.
We've longed to see the roses, but never felt the thorns
And bought our pretty crowns, but never paid the price
Find me in the river, find me there
Find me on my knees with my soul laid bare

There are lots of lessons to learn from this book- both for the parent, the would be parent and the dependent one. I like the way parents are advices to normalize sex education with their children.

There were a whole lot of lessons I learned from this book. I learned about sexual purity. This was actually the most important lesson for me. Another lesson is how to respect one's self. If we don't respect ourselves, how would other people respect us? I learned a whole lot from this book, honestly.
