Your Kids Better Protected...And You Can Do It in 30 Days
As a parent, you know the challenges against you can seem overwhelming. While you're trying to raise thoughtful, considerate, innocent children, popular culture seems to want to turn your children against you. Schools sometimes seem less places of learning than bazaars where your children are sold bad language and surly attitudes--or worse, drugs and sexually transmitted diseases. Your own day is stressful and hectic--and you worry that you're neglecting your children. And you sometimes think there's nowhere to turn for help.Now there is. Rebecca Hagelin's 30 Ways in 30 Days to Save Your Family is the guidebook every parent needs, laying out 30 practical actions--concrete, doable steps you can implement one day at a time--to restore peace in your home and reconnect with your children.
In 30 Ways in 30 Days to Save Your Family, Rebecca Hagelin--a mother of three, as well as a syndicated columnist, author, and specialist on family, culture, and media issues--provides a guide for parents who want more than mere encouragement; who want a practical plan: with realistic goals, specific actions to take, and a clear path to achievement. In 30 Ways in 30 Days to Save Your Family, you'll learn:
* What to say to your teen as you pass Victoria's Secret in the mall
* How to make a clothing contract with your daughter
* How (and why) to write a letter to your child
* How to slow down your life--and your child's--so that you can enjoy your time together
* How to fight the culture--and not your child
* And much more
Raising your child should be a joy, not an uphill battle that leaves you frustrated or in tears. Rebecca Hagelin's 30 Ways in 30 Days to Save Your Family is a parent-tested guide to help you succeed in the most important responsibility you have--raising happy, responsible, well-adjusted kids.
From the Back Cover
"Rebecca Hagelin's book clearly maps out ways to lovingly guide your children to finding purpose and courage in today's world. She challenges parents to remain active in protecting our kids' innocence and growth. She has armed me, and will arm you, with the strategy and grace to save your kids from the `cultural norm.'"
--Elisabeth Hasselbeck, Co-host, ABC's "The View""Parents need help, and not the sort of help that comes from books and speeches that are long on meditation and reflection. They need practical ideas to do real things to protect and serve their children, and that's Rebecca Hagelin's specialty. This is a book that will change how you parent your children--for the better and immediately."
--Hugh Hewitt, New York Times bestselling author and nationally syndicated talk-show host
"Rebecca Hagelin's book provides a series of bold, radical, and refreshingly practical recommendations for bringing parents closer to their children. With a popular culture that seems perversely determined to divide the generations, she shows a way to protect your family--and to win your children's hearts in the process."
--Michael Medved, National talk radio host and bestselling author of The 10 Big Lies About America

This powerful book will no doubt help you raise emotionally healthy, responsible, well-adjusted kids. 30 Ways in 30 Days to Save Your Family has great ideas AND it's highly practical. There are 30 chapters organized so that it's easy to read a short chapter every day for the next month.

Reading this book will equip you to have a much greater influence in shaping your children's future...and by extension, the future of our country.
If you're looking for rock-solid family and parenting advice from someone who knows the truth, this book will serve you well. You won't find wishy-washy answers, filtered through the lens of of political correctness, just hard-hitting, common sense ideas (that aren't so common) rooted in timeless principles.
I especially encourage you to share this book with the parents of your children's friends!
I also appreciate chapter 23- Set Clothing Standards for Your Daughter That Reflect She is to be Respected and Admired for Who She Truly Is. So many other books I've read have taken on a very hard-line stance on how "modesty" is defined, leaving little room to take into consideration personal taste. Rebecca is more practical in her approach. When she goes shopping with her daughter the rule is "We both have to like it."
This is by far one of the most practical and easy-to-read books on parenting that I've read- and I've read dozens. I can honestly recommend it as a must for any parent
In a time period when most households have working parent(s) who commmute 1-2 hours daily, who work 8+ hours away from home, and who return home to kids who need parental attention and support, this book is a godsend. In these stressful times, the author has written a book that teaches parents how to create a happy, loving home environment that nurtures everyone who lives there.
