Publisher's Summary

What has happened to the American spirit? We've gone from "Give me liberty, or give me death!" to "Take care of me, please." Our colleges were once bastions of free speech; now they're bastions of speech codes. Our culture once rewarded independence; now it rewards victimhood. Parents once taught their kids how to fend for themselves; now, any parent who tries may get a visit from the police.

In Not a Day Care, Dr. Everett Piper, president of Oklahoma Wesleyan University and author of the viral essay, "This Is Not a Day Care. It's a University!" takes a hard look at what's happening around the country - including the demand for "safe spaces" and trigger warnings at universities like Yale, Brandeis, and Oberlin - and digs in his heels against the sad and dangerous infantilization of the American spirit.

    "An Essay Stretched into a Book"

    This is another one of those essays that is turned into a book for no good reason except to cash in on the popularity of the original piece. Just reading the title of this book gives you 50% of the contents. The author simply repeats over and over again that schools should challenge students and not be safe spaces. Okay, I agree. Someone needs to address this topic properly. But this book brings nothing to the table beyond what was in the original (much shorter essay). Just google the name of the essay and read it for free. Save yourself from 5 hours of repetition.

    "Beware! For FREEDOM lovers and none else!"

    If you are not one of the few that actually loves truth and believes that it is only through the truth that "We the People..." can be free, then stay away from this book; it will cause you brain damage!

    "Plain Biblically Based Truth"

    Read this book. It's great and insightful. It speaks to many of the issues our country is facing due to laxidadical parenting coupled with the inflated ego and narcissism of today's youth.

    "believe some of the ideas."

    great concept, quickly turns into heavy religious tones. I can see many of the obscure things going for on, but to say it's Soley because of no God is way too easy to explain stupid ideas.

    this book is insightful, meaningful and downright eye opening. this is truly a must-read for any parent raising millennials. it has made me completely rethink a lot of the aspects of how I've interacted with my two children.

    "Happy to read it"

    Choose the world or choose Christ, pretty simple. Brainwashing of young minds to believe the khaos of modern liberalism is the pure essence of evil. Modern liberalism has devolved into ancient luciferianism. The modern American public universities act as lucifer's temples.
