But you boys who are in high school don’t need this, and neither do the girls” (Ensign, Nov. The First Presidency has said, “Avoid going on frequent dates with the same person” (For the Strength of Youth, 25). We’re not going to do anything bad.” I’m going to use a set of magnets as the ‘parable’ object lesson and challenge the girls to let the magnets get close but not touch. “For intelligence cleaveth unto intelligence; wisdom receiveth wisdom; truth embraceth truth; virtue loveth virtue; light cleaveth unto light; mercy hath compassion on mercy and claimeth her own; justice continueth its course and claimeth its own.” I’ll have the girls list the attributes they want in their husband. They’ll each have a set a small magnets to play with to think about this concept of being the person you want. (we’ll just leave out the part about opposites and polarity here unless we say boys and girls are opposites then it works) 2) Attraction strengthens the closer you become.
I’m going to use that as an example of the ‘law of attraction’ in two ways: 1) Like attracts like. That’s why you don’t steady date until you’re ready for marriage.
We have been told that “we’ve never had a better generation of young people in the Church than we have today.” Why, then, are we losing more to immorality than we have ever lost? If you had surveyed an LDS community, you may have found that those personally acquainted with a friend or family member who had engaged in premarital sex were an anomaly.
An even greater concern among parents today is the ever increasing threat of pornography.

I learned a great lesson a few weeks ago: Have one strong message that takes most of the lesson and they’ll remember it. The girls enjoyed the game and can you believe the next week they still new all 5 steps to scripture study? And hopefully my counselors and I should be able to answer the questions using the Spirit, the lesson manual and the scriptures.
This was discovered during the lesson on scripture study. My favorite teaching method is how the Savior used parables to demonstrate a concept.
In spite of the logical arguments, we could possibly make some exceptions if the dating system had positive data to strengthen its argument.

Instead we see relationships with no intended commitment, young men who don’t want to grow up, women who are not constant, increasing struggles with pornography and fornication, skyrocketing divorce, broken hearts, ruined friendships, jealousy, wasted time over “who likes who” and the list goes on.Today it is rare to find a ward without at least one case of immoral activity, abuse or children born out of wedlock. One BYU professor, a friend of mine, has mentioned repeatedly that the incidence of sexual immorality on campus is significantly greater than we understand. Standards are drifting, immoral behavior has become “normal” and this is sadly true for the Church as it is with the world.Considering the fact that I believe this to be a very serious issue, these comments cause great concern. Hinckley mourned: Perhaps our greatest concern is with families. The old ties that bound together father and mother and children are breaking everywhere. But are these statistics only symptoms of the real problem? Smith prophesied that in the last days “there are at least three dangers that threaten the Church within, and the authorities need to awaken to the fact that the people should be warned unceasingly against them.This discussion begs the following question: if it is considered wrong for a married individual to date other friends, (though they are not “in love”, have years of world experience and know the clear expectations and boundaries for their interaction) why is it considered normal for single young men and women?What could possibly induce us to allow two young adults, head over heels in love or at least attracted to one another, with no experience, no commitments and only a few clear expectations and boundaries, to engage in activity we would shun for married adults?It is a beautiful Friday night and the Gordon home is stirring with excitement as Sister Gordon, a wife and mother to four children, puts the final touches on her hair, makeup and evening dress.As a car pulls to a stop in the front driveway, she swiftly gathers up her purse and flies down the stairs to greet her visitor. ” gushes Sister Gordon as she swings open the door.I gave them the handout and quizzed them on each step. So I try to look for ‘parables’ that will stick with the girls to help them remember important things from the lesson. Instead of trying to offer them everything I can (quotes, scriptures, stories, handouts, treats, videos, pictures, etc) to fill the time, I’m now only going to focus on one message for most of the lesson and instead encourage discussion.And then we’ll have a discussion about group dating, dating standards, etc. WARNING: Do NOT read this article if you are content with contemporary society or happy with the direction this world is heading.
