--James C. Dobson, Ph.D., founder and president, "Family Talk"
"One of the biggest concerns parents express to me as a pediatrician is fear that their children will be swallowed whole by a hypersexualized, violent, and twisted culture. The brilliance of Rebecca Hagelin's book is that it gives effective tools to parents from a sound worldview, and this blend serves to assuage their fears beautifully."
--Meg Meeker, M.D., bestselling author of "Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters" and cohost of "Family Talk"
"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 win your children's hearts in the process."
--Michael Medved, national talk radio host and bestselling author of "The 10 Big Lies about America"
From the Inside Flap
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, loving 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. Sometimes you feel there's nowhere to turn for help.
Now there is. "30 Ways in 30 Days to Strengthen Your Family" is the guidebook every parent needs, laying out thirty practical actions--concrete, doable steps you can implement one day at a time--to restore peace in your home and reconnect with your children.
