How To Raise A Conservative Daughter

How To Raise A Conservative Daughter

"An essential resource for any parent, educator, or citizen looking for help in raising a child with conservative values." —MARK LEVIN Michelle’s wisdom as a longtime activist, mom, and mentor to young women is needed now more than ever!” —RACHEL CAMPOS-DUFFY, Fox News Contributor Raising a daughter is hard. Raising her to be a conservative can seem impossible. In a long career devoted to equipping the next generation of conservative women for leadership, Michelle Easton has worked with thousands of students and young professionals. Their backgrounds are as varied as America itself, but in each girl’s life, something went right. How to Raise a Conservative Daughter is an invaluable guide to what works. It’s foolish to pretend that the challenges aren’t enormous. Toxic social media, radical indoctrination in schools, an entertainment industry that panders to our lowest cravings—the cultural forces arrayed against your family are terrifying. But you are not helpless. Parents sometimes don’t know what to do, and often they simply don’t do what they know. It is possible, Easton shows, to nurture lasting values in your daughter. Her tested—and sometimes counter-intuitive—techniques will strengthen your daughter’s heart and mind. Ronald Reagan warned, “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.” And today, the tragically common lament of parents is, “We don't know what happened, but one day we realized our daughter had rejected our most precious values.” There are no guarantees, but savvy, determined, and loving parents have more than a fighting chance of raising the wives, mothers, and leaders our country so desperately needs.

Swimming Upstream

Swimming Upstream

Many of today's parents struggle with their approach in raising a healthy daughter within our complex culture. Never before have girls been faced with so many pressures to live up to confusing and often contradictory cultural expectations. These burdens are intense, newly evolving, and are affecting girls at earlier and earlier ages. As girls of all ages listen to the messages of popular culture, they gather that their worth is based upon a perfect appearance, the ability to gain attention and approval from others, and their accrual of accomplishments. As girls absorb these expectations, they begin to believe they are not good enough as they are. They are not able to develop an authentic sense of self because they lose themselves in trying to become what the culture dictates. It is not surprising that with all of these pressures, girls are experiencing stress, emptiness, and skyrocketing rates of mental health problems. Parents know that something is very wrong with today's culture, but they can't quite put a name on the problem. Many feel helpless as popular cultural influences pervade modern life at every turn. This book, however, provides parents with reassurance that their influence can make a significant difference in their daughters' development. Parents are empowered to make positive choices to help girls learn to resist cultural pressures and to successfully navigate the transitions they will face in their journey as girls in today's culture. Written in an engaging, practical style, Laura Choate draws from research and counseling literature to provide parents with tools they can use to teach their daughters the power of resilience. The book begins with a portrait of the contemporary adolescent girl's environment, including an in-depth exploration of cultural pressures and an overview of how these pressures influence girls' physical, cognitive, and social development. In the second part of the book, parents learn about five resilience dimensions that girls need not only to survive, but to thrive as they develop during girlhood and adolescence. Practical tools for instilling resilience regarding girls' positive body image, healthy relationships with friends and romantic partners, and management of high-pressure academic environments through a redefinition of what it means to be successful are all discussed extensively.

You Re Not Enough And That S Okay

You Re Not Enough And That S Okay

From one of the sharpest Christian voices of her generation and host of the podcast Relatable comes a framework for escaping our culture of trendy narcissism—and embracing God instead. We're told that the key to happiness is self-love. Instagram influencers, mommy bloggers, self-help gurus, and even Christian teachers promise that if we learn to love ourselves, we'll be successful, secure, and complete. But the promise doesn't deliver. Instead of feeling fulfilled, our pursuit of self-love traps us in an exhausting cycle: as we strive for self-acceptance, we become addicted to self-improvement. The truth is we can't find satisfaction inside ourselves because we are the problem. We struggle with feelings of inadequacy because we are inadequate. Alone, we are not good enough, smart enough, or beautiful enough. We're not enough--period. And that's okay, because God is. The answer to our insufficiency and insecurity isn't self-love, but God's love. In Jesus, we're offered a way out of our toxic culture of self-love and into a joyful life of relying on him for wisdom, satisfaction, and purpose. We don't have to wonder what it's all about anymore. This is it. This book isn't about battling your not-enoughness; it's about embracing it. Allie Beth Stuckey, a Christian, conservative new mom, found herself at the dead end of self-love, and she wants to help you combat the false teachings and self-destructive mindsets that got her there. In this book, she uncovers the myths popularized by our self-obsessed culture, reveals where they manifest in politics and the church, and dismantles them with biblical truth and practical wisdom.
