Episode 117: How Do You Protect Your Child Against Harmful Cultural Elements In The School System?

Did you know that only 1% of Gen Z has a Biblical worldview? So it came as no surprise that we recently discovered the #1 question Christian parents ask is, “How can I best protect my child from harmful cultural elements while still keeping them in the public school system?” Kori & Lee’s conversation shifts the paradigm from “how can we protect” to “how can we prepare” our children to stand firm in their faith and know the rights they have in their schools. We want our kids to graduate high school confident and ready for the world – and the best way to do that is to walk closely alongside them in truth right now.

Ready to prepare your kids to stand firm in their faith at school no matter what culture is pushing? Let’s go!
