If America knew what was in the book it would be the number one top seller in America.
This book should be recommended reading for all School Authoritative figures and all politicians and all Christian and Jewish Church Authoritative figures.

Let me first say that I am, I think, a decent person. I am, however imperfect or inadequate, a practicing Christian. Thus, just because I disagree with the great morality spew of Mr. Dobson and Mr.(President?)Bauer does not mean that I'm a perverted, pornography peddling, single mother kissing, out of wedlock born and thieving person. I hope you can see the sarcasim. But, yes, I am a normal person!
OK - this book does on occasion make good points. The cultural left all too often over the past 30 years has done some pretty stupid things, yet so has the cultural right. If Dobson and Bauer are so concerned about 'children' then they should do a pragmatic - and not right wing - book on the affects of everything from pornography to unemployment to racism to lack of health care to divorce to the global economy to religious values, etc. Children don't know a darn thing about liberalism vs. conservatism, they only know the values we teach them. Teaching them that gun control is bad and that homosexual control is good just doesn't make sense. Teaching them that tobacco is good and drugs are bad just doesn't make sense. Why can't we embrace moral responsibility on both the left and right? This book sure doesn't.
In fact, I would dare argue that this book occasionally hams it up and demagogues, if not lies, about some issues. I refuse to believe some of the things I read. If they were true, we'd be in Communist 'Mother Russia' now! Also, I refuse to believe that the 'pro-family'(hah!)policies of the Reagan/Bush Administrations actually helped families. What a lie! Also, I find the book's section on the child care debate to be a mockery of what is true and what families need.
Yes, the book does make some good points.

This book reports that the White House distributed a workbook to schools asking children "to draw the world's largest penis, compare white and black penises, and show their parents making love." Gary Wills, a respected journalist, says that Dobson has never been able to substantiate this claim. I guess that William Bennett, who has written the book's introduction, doesn't mind if these kinds of lies are published, but I do.
