Encouraging Modesty Through Healthy Interaction--And No More Stake Dances

Here’s my plan:

* Replace Stake Dances with game nights and talent shows (and other worthwhile activities)
* Combined YM/YW monthly activity = service, always. Real service outside of the church unit and in the community.

If we can get our youth interacting on deeper levels than who is successful at getting past the “dark corridor” police at dances and who has the best dress/makeup and danced the most, we might have a shot at them choosing to socialize rather than explore how far they can go in a physical relationship and still be safe. The pressure for girls to attract is great, and often overwhelming. It can deliver a crushing blow to fragile self esteems.
