Transgender ideology is a huge threat to our kids’ health and happiness. What can parents do about it?

Erin Friday is a California attorney and mom. She was very involved in her daughter’s school—but that didn’t keep her safe from the long arm of controversial gender ideology. Listen in today as she and Melvin talk about modern parenting challenges, how schools are sneaking radical indoctrination into the classroom, and most importantly, Erin’s story of rescuing her daughter from the spiral of mental illness and the transgender lifestyle.

“[T]he mental health piece is huge and if the adults in this child’s life—and teachers, especially—say yes, you are trangender, we’re affirming you, that child starts to believe that they can actually change sex. That they’re actually a boy. It’s really important for parents to hold the line because we’re the only ones holding the line. Especially here in crazy California, we have to hold the line into reality for our kids.” — Erin Friday

  • The trajectory of young girls who are influenced by LGBTQ ideology
