Everything is suddenly better…what’s with her? She’s giddy. You couldn’t wipe the smile off her face if you tried. Is she on something?
She sure is. Infatuation. David Clark says, “Infatuation is like a drug.”
If your girl is young and has never experienced this mood altaring drug, she might be blind sided when it hits her. Unfamiliar with the rush of the heart beat and the adrenaline coursing through her veins, she might find herself following whatever path the source of this good feeling comes from. Emotionally and physically, this drug can cause your girl to pay a heavy toll.
It’s not just girls who are affected – boys are taken in by the high that comes from being wanted.
Talk to your child before they discover this highly addictive “substance”. Help her to understand the power being wanted can have over her heart and her mind. Warn her to see the signs and to not give in to unwise choices when her mind won’t think straight. Walk her through scenerios and what she would do.
Do you need some help setting up situations and helping your girl process the wise thing to do? Chapter 7 “We Protect Together” in His Revolutionary Love does just that!
Carve out a time this week to have this conversation with your child. When and how will you do this?
