Why should your kids join the Purity Retreat?
According to the statistics:
- Two out of every three shows on TV include sexual content, an increase from about half of all shows during the 97/98 television season. The most widely viewed shows-those airing in primetime on the major networks are even more likely to include sexual content.
- In a study of 13-and 14-year-olds, heavy exposure to sexually oriented television increased acceptance of non-marital sex.
Guest speakers will be Dr. Reem Tadros for the girls, and Dr. Joe Hanna for the boys. They will speak to the children about this topic in a professional manner in a Coptic Orthodox environment. Retreat contents will be sent out before the retreat so that parents are aware of what will be shared.
