Many parents are uncomfortable with relationships teaching delivered from an overtly secular standpoint that promotes a strongly liberal morality.

This is a four-part interactive lesson resource for school years 5 and 6. Focusing on a couple who are engaging and relaxed as they discuss their marriage in a positive but realistic manner, it covers friendship, puberty, love, marriage and the facts of life from a Christian perspective. Though some teachers might be wary of references to God, these are not heavy because the resource is aimed at state schools. Developed by an experienced team, it contains everything needed for a lesson, including PowerPoint slides, video clips, lesson plans and worksheets. The video clips begin by exploring children's aspirations for adult relationships and are an excellent resource you might use outside school. While many children don't come from a stable home, there is no implied criticism of other backgrounds.

Clearly placing sex within the context of a positive view of marriage, this resource is high quality and of great value. We'll definitely be recommending it to our children's school!
