If you have children—or simply care about children—then you must listen to this episode of the Hank Unplugged podcast. The book co-authored by guest Bethany Mandel, Stolen Youth: How Radicals Are Erasing Innocence and Indoctrinating a Generation, provides an urgent deep dive into issues surrounding the current woke indoctrination happening in politics, education, medicine, mental health, entertainment, and culture.These issues may seem subtle, insidious, and hard to make sense of, but armed with the right information we now have a framework from which to fight. While we may simply be trying to parent our children well and create a healthy and happy home environment, this is no longer enough. We must now go on the offense to protect our kids. We can no longer afford to stay ignorant. Our children’s lives and the survival of our families are at stake.For further information on how to receive Stolen Youth: How Radicals Are Erasing Innocence and Indoctrinating a Generation, for your partnering gift please click here.
