A busy parent’s guide to what’s happening in your children’s classrooms and practical steps you can take to protect them.


When parents drop their children off at school they are trusting the school to look after their child’s best interest, but that is sadly not always the case.

How would you respond if you discovered your school clinic was dispensing contraceptives to your child — without informing parents? Or if a boy took a spot on your daughter’s high school soccer team because he felt like a girl? Or if you found out your six-year-old child’s teacher is reading books about gender-confused children to the whole classroom?

We’re concerned too. We read the news and receive numerous phone calls, emails, and letters from parents, grandparents, family members, and church leaders. They tell us what’s happening at their children’s schools and ask for help responding.


That’s why we’ve created this FREE resource for you.

  • Discover what’s happening in schools and why you should be concerned.
  • Each section covers different topics, such as how to protect your child from inappropriate or biased material in the classroom, what to do when you find offensive or explicit books in your school library, and how to guard your child’s safety in school restrooms and locker rooms.
  • Learn about your rights and your children’s rights
  • Suggestions about how to respectfully advocate on behalf of your child
  • Guidance on how to talk with your children about sensitive and difficult subjects
  • Links to additional helpful articles and resources

What People Are Saying About Back To School – For Parents


“Given how pervasive socialist ideologies and online technology have become in our culture and public institutions, it has never been harder for parents to know our rights, and to properly educate and protect our children. As a pediatrician and mother of four adolescents, I can authoritatively say that Back to School —for Parents is the most important book a parent will ever read. Download one for yourself, and for each of your family members and friends who cherish their kids!”

Executive Director, American College of Pediatricians


“Concerned Women for America stands with Family Policy Alliance and Focus on the Family on the front lines of these challenging cultural issues. It is critical that parents be equipped with the information they need to understand and confront the gender ideology being promoted through our schools. CWA commends Back to School—for Parents as an invaluable resource to educate and engage families and policymakers in your community.”

“Left-wing activists have completely infiltrated our schools and are doing everything they can to indoctrinate our kids into their dangerous ideology. We have to stop them.
