About this item

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.

It seems like what my kids need most from me is constant attention and constant play. But is that actually what they need? This book convinced me what kids need most is to feel like they belong. If they don't feel like they belong in their own families, they will find some place else where they feel...see moreof the reviewer's review

Where do I begin? This is one of the best books I've read in a long time. It's one that I read, then went back and re-read several passages with pen in hand to underline and make notes! As the mom of 4 young children, I was immediately drawn to this book. I believe we must prepare for the teenage ye...see moreof the reviewer's review
