Willow Smith and Polyamory

Twenty-year-old Willow Smith is the hit-music-making daughter of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith. Popular among our children and teens, she is one of today’s influencers regarding belief and behavior. Back in 2019, she came out as bisexual. Just recently, she announced to her followers that she is polyamorous. The word combines the prefix “poly”- meaning “many or several” – with the Latin word for love, “amor.” In other words, those who embrace polyamory believe in having several emotionally and/or sexually intimate relationships at one time, and doing it all out in the open, with the approval of everyone involved. This takes the commonly accepted practice of premarital promiscuity and amps it up to new levels. Parents, your kids are now swimming in a cultural soup where relational and sexual faithfulness are seen as archaic and so yesterday. Take time and care to engage in the ongoing process of teaching your kids to know and embrace God’s good design for their sexuality.
