From the Inside Flap

Your Family Can Be Stronger...
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

Praise For 30 Ways in 30 Days to Save Your Family

"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

By James M. Kushiner on April 6, 2009
Format: Hardcover
What I most love about Rebecca Hagelin's book--besides the very practical, hands on, parent- and kid-tested suggestions and resources--is her infectious upbeat attitude, a can do, positive joy in shouldering the difficult responsibilities of parenting. Children are gifts, but we in our downbeat culture, are filled with unrelieved worries about things, material things. What Rebecca gives the reader is a bracing reminder that, hey, this is all about people we love, and let's enjoy and make the very best of the hard times and the good times--they both teach us lessons and build character. As the great fourth-century John Chrysostom reminded his packed church, material things are on loan from God; what we take with us beyond earthly life are virtues and character and the fruit of such a life. Help for struggling parents and children is here in her book.

In today's culture, even the best parents can wonder how to give their children the best practical ideas to stay thoughtful, considerate and safe. But for young parents especially, this book is a God send. Raising a child today is full of more speed bumps and pitfalls than probably any generation before us. And when the children are at school, they are constantly being offered incentives to stray from their moral upbringing. I have given this amazing and easy step-by-step guide to strengthening your family to every expecting friend, and young parent I know, in the hopes that it will do what it did for me: offer me real hope, optimism, and fresh encouraging ideas to bring my family closer together. Don't buy one copy, buy TEN! And give it to all of your friends. Buy 50 and give it to your church group, boy scout parents, soccer moms/dads, etc. because you'll find that your fellow parents are facing the same issues you are, and developing that network of support is a blessing unto itself.

One of my favorite chapters is 20- Establish a Family Tradition of a Daily Quiet Time. As a homeschooling mom, I'm looking forward to implementing this into our daily schedule.

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

Anyone who is considering having children will benefit greatly by reading this book ! One of the best things about this book is that the author makes it simple with her one day at a time approach to parenting.

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.

I remember when almost everyone, about 20 years ago, was buying the "what you need to know about having babies" books. They were helpful for a few years . . . then we were all flying by the seat of our pants, trying to navigate a totally different world than the one we were raised in. The last thing our moms would say in the Summer as we headed out on our bikes was, "Be home before dark." Now . . . it seems that darkness has crept into our homes and communities so much, that kids don't ride bikes any more for fear of the reality of what lurks out there. Rebecca's book is a breath of fresh air to realize that we are not alone as parents, but share the same frustrations and confusion that millions of parents are experiencing. But like the baby books, when we had a question that needed a quick answer without having to read the whole thing, you can leaf right to that issue in Rebecca's book and get a quick and insightful answer . . . one that she shares because she learned to break the teen code of conversation. I would recommend this book even for new parents because it will give you an idea of what to expect . . . sooner than you think . . . as that little bundle of joy begins experiencing all hurdles and obstacles the new world has to offer. Get it for your friends who are struggling with their family relationships. This is a real winner of a book. Very well done and very much needed.
