Modest Teens by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 10/12/11

“My daughter’s always been pretty modest. Now we’re in the pre-teen years. I look around at what teens are wearing, and I wonder if we’re going to have some issues.”

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: In our culture it can be a challenge to raise kids who have a heart for modesty. I would just encourage you to talk about this issue with your daughter. Don’t be afraid to be open.

Your daughter might not always agree with you, but remember you’re the mother. Your job is to train her to be godly and to give her specific, practical instruction about how to be modest in dress and behavior.

If possible, encourage your husband to develop a strong relationship with your daughter and talk with her about true beauty and modesty.

Finally, ask God to help you set a godly example, not only in the way you dress, but even more importantly, in your actions and in your heart attitudes.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love. — 1 John 4:18 (NKJV)
