Publisher's Summary

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 listeners 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.

Amazing!

Couldn’t imagine this book being more helpful as a parent. She gives real, practical examples and detail of what to do and NOT to do that absolutely make sense and are based on actual real life people, families and experiences!

Exceptional Christian parenting resource

My children are still small and thinking of them rebeling as teenagers is dumbfounding, but listening to this book gave me so many great pathways to raising my children in faith of the Lord and hope that they can survive this increasingly depraved world to be strong citizens and adults
