"Criminal silences exist as well as infamous words. Thus, to keep silent about the sexual problem is a crime; likewise, to mistakenly speak about the sexual problem constitutes another crime.

Consequently, if parents and teachers keep silent, and the sexual perverts speak, the victims are the inexperienced adolescents. If adolescents cannot consult their parents nor their teachers, then they will consult their classmates, who may already be deviated towards the mistaken path."

I understand this, but I do not feel qualified to discuss these matters with my child.

Although I understand some of the teachings on an intellectual level, I am still at the point where I am struggling to implement them in my own life, ie, eliminating lust, etc.

It seems inappropriate for someone at my level to attempt to guide someone else on the subject of sexuality--although there can be no doubt that the indoctrination children receive about sexuality from school, etc, is inappropriate as well.

The time is coming where my son should hear what the teachings have to say, and then make up his own mind...but I am uncertain how, or even if, I should proceed.

For thirty years I sought God. But when I looked carefully I found that in reality God was the seeker and I the sought. -Bayazid al-Bastami
