Anxiety among Catholic mothers is sky high. How do mothers teach their sons to be chaste when a sex-obsessed culture is ready to drag our boys into the pit at every turn? Mothers want to do is protect the innocence of their little ones and the honor of their teens, yet the snares of ubiquitous porn, hook-up sex, the LGBTQ juggernaut, and the devaluing of true manhood appear unavoidable. What’s a mother to do?
“With the candor of a close friend and the wisdom of an experienced mother, Leila Miller demystifies a subject that is overwhelming to many people.”
—Jennifer Fulwiler, Best-selling author; Host The Jennifer Fulwiler Show
