Teach Daughters Modesty and Teach Sons Against Lust

Parents need to explain to their daughters how easily a man is aroused sexually by a woman’s body.  They need to know, because many of them do not understand what happens to a man. … They also need to explain to their sons that although women’s clothes, or lack of them, can be a stumbling block to a male, it is not an excuse for them in relation to what their mind does with what they see.  Job had an answer for this problem:  “I made a covenant with my eyes not to look lustfully at a girl” (Job 31:1, NIV).  As Christians, males should have a covenant with their eyes and be reminded of this when lustful thoughts come as a result of what they see or hear.
