Such an important issue! I believe that our youth are vastly unprepared for life outside of the Christian bubble. So often, we assume that just taking them to church and Sunday school will be enough, and we forget to follow it up with additional education and preparation. True Christian education must begin early and is all about communication and information. Establishing a true faith and understanding as soon as possible will help arm them with the armor of God that they will need to fend off the attacks of this scary secular world. Thank you for addressing this!

Secular colleges these days condone "occasions to sin" not only for young women, but also for young men. Unfortunately, the great majority of people, including professed Christians, hold to a double standard for men and women, which is one key reason why our society is in the mess it's in. This is why I pointed out the fact that it is wise for parents not to wait until college age to begin to think about this issue. Since, as Marlena pointed out, "Children can recite hyper-sexualized song lyrics, rehearse sexually explicit film dialogue, and even swap porn back and forth like trading cards via social media and their smart phones", parents need to consider the quality of education from preschool up. It is vitally important to establish children's hearts in God's Holy Word from a young age so they will know and understand right from wrong, not as a set of rules, but from God's perspective so they can understand the importance of making wise decisions.

In order to fore go further discussion (argument) on the issue of college for girls, this article will outline the principal reasons for shunning college for girls....here are the reasons to NOT send your daughter to college: 1. She will attract the wrong types of men. 2. She will be in a near occasion of sin. 3. She will not learn to be a wife and mother. 4. The cost of a degree is becoming more difficult to recoup. 5. You don’t have to prove anything to the world. 6. It could be a near occasion of sin for the parents. 7. She will regret it. 8. It could interfere with a religious vocation. Reading the full post will demonstrate that the idea of not sending your daughter to college is a good idea.

Aurdey Ruth - from the original article - "Probably the most controversial and rejected position we have at Fix the Family is that parents should not send their daughters to college. It is even more vehemently opposed than the submission of wives to their husbands. Both of these positions we have are a threat to the trophies of the feminist agenda, so the rejection we receive is always emotionally charged and ends up insulting, since once explained logically, the opposition runs out of substance and is only left to hurl insults and presume and misconstrue this practical wisdom into some chauvinistic evil. But to distinguish these 2 issues, we are NOT saying that sending a girl to college or women working is a sin. But after looking at the issues we raise, we would challenge anyone to convince us that college for girls is not a near occasion of sin. continued
