Why I Didn't Rebel: A Twenty-Two-Year-Old Explains Why She Stayed on the Straight and Narrow-- and How Your Kids Can Too

Rebecca Gregorie Lindenbach

$18.99

Paperback
:

In this unique combination of personal history, interviews, and social science, a young millennial shares surprising reasons that youthful rebellion isn't inevitable and points the way for raising healthy, grounded children who love God.

Teen rebellion is seen as a cultural norm, but Rebecca Gregoire Lindenbach begs to differ. In Why I Didn't Rebel--based on a viral blog post that has been read by more than 750,000 people--Lindenbach shows how rebellion is neither unavoidable nor completely understood. Based on interviews with her peers and combining the latest research in psychology and social science with stories from her own life, she gives parents a new paradigm for raising kids who don't go off the rails.

Rather than provide step-by-step instructions on how to construct the perfect family, Lindenbach tells her own story and the stories of others as examples of what went right, inviting readers to think differently about parenting. Addressing hot-button issues such as courtship, the purity movement, and spanking--and revealing how some widely--held beliefs in the Christian community may not actually help children--Why I Didn't Rebel provides an utterly unique, eye-opening vision for raising kids who follow God rather than the world.

Highly Recommended!
5 stars By Laura, Jan 20 2018
In today's society teenagers are often expected to be moody, disrespectful and lazy. However the reality is that teens have the potential to be so much more! This book takes a positive view of the teen years and gives practical advice on how to help teens become the best they can be, and not fall away from their faith. The extensive research and variety of stories shows how teenagers in all different situations can thrive, rather than run off the rails. Highly recommended for all parents!
