GENERAL

Back to School for Parents - A busy's parents guide to what is happening in your child's classroom and practical steps you can take to protect them. 

Stopk12indoctrination.org - The effects of this systematic effort to radicalize K-12 education are being felt in school districts all over the country. Young students learning arithmetic are given thought problems involving homelessness and the percentage of “undocumented workers” subjected 3 to heartless deportation proceedings. Social studies is now a race, gender and climate change-obsessed curriculum designed to frighten rather than educate. In the hands of leftist teachers, America is a nation of victims rather than a nation of immigrants. Some concerned parents and educators appalled by this new regime have reported educational horror stories that should concern every citizen. The site is committed to stop K-12 indoctrination and has several resources available.

PragerU.com/PREP - PragerU Educators & Parents (PREP) to give you the resources, support, and tools to teach your children about America’s blessings and limitless opportunities. For decades, our schools have taught that America is not a land of plenty but a nation of systemic oppression and inequality. Students learn half-truths or lies to make them feel ashamed of being American. We risk losing our youth to this leftist propaganda. The only way to defeat this ideological takeover is by galvanizing the millions of Americans who want to take back our children’s education. We are launching the most powerful online community of conservative parents and educators in America and we invite you to join us.

Back To School for Parents - A busy parents guide to what's happening in your children's classroom and practical steps you can take to protect them. Each section covers different topics, such as how to protect your child from inappropriate or biased material in the classroom, what to do when you find offensive or explicit books in your school library, and how to guard your child’s safety in school restrooms and locker rooms.

Book - The Diversity Delusion: How Race and Gender Pandering Corrupt the University and Undermine Our Culture by Heather Mac Donald - America is in crisis. Toxic ideas first spread by higher education have undermined humanistic values, fueled intolerance, and widened divisions in our larger culture. Chaucer, Shakespeare and Milton? Oppressive. American history? Tyranny. Professors correcting grammar and spelling, or employers hiring by merit? Racist and sexist. Students emerge into the working world believing that human beings are defined by their skin color, gender, and sexual preference, and that oppression based on these characteristics is the American experience. The Diversity Delusion argues that the root of this problem is the belief in America’s endemic racism and sexism, a belief that has engendered a metastasizing diversity bureaucracy in society and academia.

SEX EDUCATION

StopCSE.org - This website was created to warn parents and policy makers of the serious harms of explicit comprehensive sexuality education programs. This project is a joint effort of Family Watch International, the UN Family Rights Caucus, the Stop the Kinsey Institute coalition and concerned parents worldwide.

Book - You're Teaching My Child What? by Dr. Miriam Grossman - Think Sex Ed Is All About The “Facts of Life”? Think Again. If you think sex education is still about the birds and the bees, think again. And it's not about science either. In her shocking exposé, Dr. Grossman rips back the curtain on sex education today, exposing a sordid truth. Today's sex ed programs aren't based on science; they're based on liberal lies and politically correct propaganda that promote the illusion that children (yes, children) can be sexually free without risk.

Concernedparentsoftexas.com -  We are parents, grandparents, educators, and community members who are against the radical sex ed and LGBT agenda being introduced to children as young as 4 through "anti-bullying," "relationship education" and school sex ed curricula. We believe that we, as parents, have the right to give our children the right message about sex. The message being taught in schools is setting up our children for disease, abuse, and negative life outcomes, and we will no longer sit silently by. By arming parents with facts and tools, we aim to ensure schools are a safe place for actual learning. Join us in protecting the children of Texas.

Ascend - Ascend champions youth to make healthy decisions in relationship and life promoting well-being through a primary prevention strategy, and as a national membership and advocacy organization that serves, leads, represents and equips the Sexual Risk Avoidance (SRA) field.

Our goal is to help you raise strong children, build healthy communities and form a great nation. 

Book - Get Out Now: Why You Should Pull Your Child From Public School Before It's Too Late by Mary Rice Hasson Theresa Farran - Should we stay or should we go? Millions of parents with children in public schools can't believe they're asking this question. But they are. And you should be asking it too. Almost overnight, America's public schools have become morally toxic. And they are especially poisonous for the hearts and minds of children from religious families of every faith—ordinary families who value traditional morality and plain old common sense. Parents' first duty is to their children—to their intellect, their character, their souls. The facts on the ground point to one conclusion: get out now.

 

Book - Irreversible Damage - The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters - Until just a few years ago, gender dysphoria—severe discomfort in one’s biological sex—was vanishingly rare. But today whole groups of female friends in colleges, high schools, and even middle schools across the country are coming out as “transgender.” These are girls who had never experienced any discomfort in their biological sex until they heard a coming-out story from a speaker at a school assembly or discovered the internet community of trans “influencers.”  Unsuspecting parents are awakening to find their daughters in thrall to hip trans YouTube stars and “gender-affirming” educators via public school sex ed programs and therapists who push life-changing interventions on young girls—including medically unnecessary double mastectomies and puberty blockers that can cause permanent infertility.

Responding to the Transgender Issue Parent Resource Guide

The End of Gender? - Ally Beth Stuckey podcast with Dr. Debra Soh, renowned sex and gender researcher, to the program. Dr. Soh talks about how she came to change her opinion on transitioning young kids through her research and studies, but as leftist activism infiltrates the scientific community, this kind of honest research is often seen in negative light. Although the activists now taking over science may have good intentions, the myths they tell to kids about gender only serve to confuse them further. Dr. Soh also breaks down her professional opinion on the difference between sexual orientation and gender dysphoria.

Sex Change Regret - Up to 20% have regrets about their sex change. Sex change procedures are not effective, say researchers. Ten to 15 years after surgical reassignment, the suicide rate is 20 times that of comparable peers. The site reaches out to those considering detransitioning.

The Kelsey Coalition - is a non-partisan, volunteer-run organization based in the United States. Our singular mission is to protect young people who identify as transgender (or nonbinary) from medical and psychological harms.
