How do you convince someone who is not willing to hear you when you are trying to help them be smart about sex? They choose to go their own way.
That’s a great question. There will often be people who don’t agree with your stand on abstinence. You might share with them about the health benefits of abstinence, the physical and emotional consequences of sex, and even the freedom that comes from practicing abstinence.
This may help your friends realize the many benefits of abstinence. They may wonder however, if it’s too late for them to start practicing abstinence. The answer is “NO!” It is never too late to start over.
There’s always the chance that someone may still not listen. You can’t control the decisions of others, but you can control your own. Be an example by the way you live.
