Over half of all births to young adults in the United States now occur outside of marriage, and many are unplanned. The result is increased poverty and inequality for children. The left argues for more social support for unmarried parents; the right argues for a return to traditional marriage. In Generation Unbound, Isabel V. Sawhill offers a third approach: change "drifters" into "planners." In a well-written and accessible survey of the impact of family structure on child well-being, Sawhill contrasts "planners," who are delaying parenthood until after they marry, with "drifters," who are having unplanned children early and outside of marriage. These two distinct patterns are contributing to an emerging class divide and threatening social mobility in the United States. Sawhill draws on insights from the new field of behavioral economics, showing that it is possible, by changing the default, to move from a culture that accepts a high number of unplanned pregnancies to a culture in which adults only have children when they are ready to be a parent.

As a journalist, television news producer, writer, and editor, Marcia Segelstein has spent decades reporting on family-related issues. Her work has brought her face-to-face with troubling shifts in our culture away from Christian values — and the impact these trends are having on our children. As a mother, Marcia recognizes that these are more than news stories: they are a personal battle. And this is a battle every Christian parent today must be equipped to fight. In Don’t Let the Culture Raise Your Kids, Marcia shows us how today’s parents need to be different — and why. She coaches parents to lead their children with confidence and authority, eyes wide open to the pitfalls and dangers that surround them, whether in the media, in school, or among their peers. It’s not too late to raise Christian kids. It’s this simple: Don’t Let the Culture Raise Your Kids. Armed with the information provided in this book, you can start today.
