At the MTV VMA’s Russell Brand cracked several jokes about purity’s rings.
"While Brand’s political comments certainly brewed up a storm, what drew arguably the biggest response was Brand’s repeated jabs at the Jonas Brothers and the purity rings they wear as a symbol of their vow not to have premarital sex."
"The band of three brothers, whose father is a pastor, famously wear the rings on their left-hand ring finger to remind themselves of their "promise to ourselves and to God that we'll stay pure 'till marriage." They also abstain from alcohol, tobacco and drugs."
Purity is not a joke and if you are a parent this is a great time to bring up the topic. A lot of students are talking about this issue.
Here are some questions you might ask your teenager:
1. What did you think of the VMA’s
2. Did you like Russell Brand hosting?
3. What did you think about his comments about the Jones Brothers?
4. What do your friends say about what he said? Is purity a big deal in the school or do friends think it is a joke?
5. What do you think son/daughter?
Give them permission to respond…. You can never help your child unless you are willing to listen to your child
