What’s a parent to do? Needless to say this trend can be intimidating to those who feel deeply and passionately about the need to protect their child’s innocence—and who believe in their God-given and constitutional rights to direct the upbringing of their children. This trend is also creating a pressure-cooker situation for students of faith who find their beliefs challenged, and often disparaged, in classrooms and college campuses. How can people of faith respond to these circumstances?

The resources on this page are designed to equip students and parents to navigate these issues.
