How can we present the idea of abstinence to our daughters to make them even consider giving it a go? This is where The Cookie comes into play! Parents, this is an awesome icebreaker to segue into the big talk. The Cookie was written for girls who have the incredibly difficult decision of upholding traditional beliefs and value systems that have been passed down by older generations in the new era of being promiscuous and experimenting at an early age. In an ideal world, girls would remain virgins until they are mature enough to handle all that comes along with making such a life-changing decision. Needless to say, this is far-fetched in this day and time. No matter the path your children choose for themselves, reading the story of Lauren and Robbie is a great way to communicate, learn, and develop into an adolescent in a fun way!
