This year, LIFEYouth students explored current attitudes of sex and dating expressed in the movie: 50 Shades of Grey, a romantic movie, right? What kind of girls/guys do guys/girls like? Free choice makes it okay, right?
Isn’t sexual experimentation okay? What is healthy in a relationship? After reading a short, reality-based article about 50 Shades by Miriam Grossman, MD, I knew I had to act. I called the the Houston Center for Christian Counseling and spoke to Laura Braziel, M.M.F.T., LPC, LMFT, a young, professional counselor. I am so grateful that she has a heart and passion for youth and heard my plea. Our hope it this talk provides an opportunity for you and your young adult to discuss this current movie and life-changing subject matter.
