Family Life’s Passport2Purity Getaway Kit Third Edition Review

Your child begins the journey into adolescence in a world of sexting, bullying, online stalking and moral defiance.  Innocence is under attack, and you cannot win the battle with a single awkward talk or a strict set of rules.  The primary defense for your child is a strong relationship with you and with God.  FamilyLife developed Passport2Purity (P2P) to assist you in building heart-to-heart communication with your preteen while laying a foundation of purity that will prepare him or her for the turbulent years ahead.  Through the shared listening experience, object lessons and guided conversations of a P2P weekend getaway, you can set your son or daughter on a journey of moral integrity – and strengthen the bond between you.  It is designed to be used by a mother and daughter or a father and son when the child is a preteen.  It is suggested that the materials be completed over a weekend away from home, as the child may be more open to discussing the topics away from his or her normal environment.  If this isn’t possible, the material can be completed over a period of four or five weeks.
About the getaway kit:

The third edition of Passport2Purity (P2P Version 3) features new design, copy revisions, the addition of 25 student devotionals, and an accompanying project kit (sold separately). P2P is designed to help parents discuss love, sex, and relationships with their preteen children. The Passport2Purity kit includes a parent guide (Tour Guide), a student guide (Travel Journal), and five audio sessions on CD with special projects.

Session One: Beginning the Journey

Challenges, Traps, and Choices

This session lays the groundwork for the weekend. Discusses challenges adolescents may encounter and choices they will have to make.

Session Two: Running with the Herd

Friendships and Peer Pressure

Session two leads the child on an evaluation of their friendships and an evaluation of themselves as a friend. It asks them to consider the influence their peers are having on them and the influence they are having on their peers.

Session Three: Ready for an Upgrade?

Changes in Him, Changes in Her

Session three discusses the physical changes that are going to occur in the child’s life. It encourages him or her to treat the opposite sex with respect. Separate sections are addressed to the young men and young women. It also explains the act of sex and how it is a gift from God to be saved for marriage.

Session Four: Destination: Lé Pure

Setting Boundaries
Session four talks about setting boundaries both physically and emotionally and deciding beforehand how far you will go. Encourages parents to set boundaries on the front end with their child and discusses the consequences of not having boundaries.

Session Five: Crossing the Date Line

Seeing Dating Differently

Session five is a summation of the weekend. Parent and child hopefully will reach an agreement about when a child will date and what that will look like.

My Review
I had the opportunity to use this with one of my sons and I can honestly say that it was very beneficial.  Children growing up in today’s world face many challenges that we never faced as children.  It is truly a different world than the one I grew up in.  Being able to openly discuss with my child what challenges they are likely to face growing up helps me to to influence them in the right way instead of allowing worldly influences.  The material is honest, clear, and tastefully done.  Each session included teaching, stories and testimonies.    In addition, each topic for each session is reinforced using a hands-on visual project.  You end the journey with a weekend getaway.  This provides you with an opportunity for “invaluable, concentrated time of memories and conversations and can result in relational equity and closeness that can last a lifetime.”
    Passport to Purity is an excellent investment in the future of your child.  I wholeheartedly recommend this resource for anyone with children approaching adolescence.
Would like like a kit for yourself?  They are available for boys and girls.  Purchase it for $39.99 here.
