About the Author
Susan Zuidema has been an Ontario elementary school teacher for over nine years. With a bachelor’s degree in Bible, evangelism, and discipleship from Moody Bible Institute, Chicago, she counters the messages being delivered within the curriculum and the culture with the truth from God’s Word. Charlotte Goulding graduated from Memorial University of Newfoundland in 2004, and has since split her time being a stay-at-home-mom and an employee in health care. Her knowledge of human health and anatomy has lent a valuable perspective for this project.

Regardless of your background, many parents will be shocked to learn what is being taught children in their formidable years. Parental rights are simply trampled when your child is considered a ward of the state when attending public (state-funded) schools. [Since this book was released, to make matters even worse in Ontario, Bill 89 became law on June 1st. If you as a parent actively attempt to instruct your child a view contrary to what the curriculum teaches with regard to LGBT issues or insecurities, Social Services have the right to seize your children because you are subjecting them to a form of ‘mental abuse’. Research it for yourself.] Read this book! Its content is not opinion, conjecture, or a conservative tirade. Far from it! It’s very well researched and complete with around three hundred references. Read this book and then tell everyone with children to do the same.
This is a timely, biblical and scientifically accurate evaluation of today’s chaotic sex culture and public school “comprehensive” sex education programs as practiced in the English-speaking world. It should be required reading by all Christian parents, educators and ministry leaders who care about the moral and spiritual formation of our kids and teens in our anti-Christian culture. The writer is a mother of three and has taught in Ontario public elementary schools almost a decade. She focuses on the current Ontario health curriculum as her case in point. Her passions are clear, warranted and well documented.
Her eleven chapters masterfully critique the lies our kids are taught in our culture and our public K-12 schools. These betray their goal as not being our kids’ health but their sexual freedom. For example, chapter 10 exposes “truth benders” such as 1) “Condoms protect against HIV and STIs,” 2) “Anal sex is no riskier than other forms of sex,” 3) “HIV is a manageable illness,” 4) “Homosexual and transgender Individuals are not connected to an increased risk for HIV,” and 5) “Reducing stigma is one of the best ways to stop the spread of HIV.”
Instead of letting our kids establish their personal identities around their self-perceived genders or sexual orientations, they need to establish their personal identity around their being “God’s handiwork created in Christ Jesus to good works which God prepared in advance for us to do” (Eph. 2:10). Parenting is our chance to help our kids with that. The facts presented here could provide parents with strategic resources for that challenge.

Parental rights are trampled when your child is considered a ward of the state attending public-funded schools. Its content is not opinion, conjecture, or a conservative tirade. Far from it! It’s very well researched and complete with around three hundred references. Read this book and then tell everyone with children to do the same, because it may soon be coming to your state. Ontario just happens to be the North American testing zone. Pray for the many young minds who are being subjected to the proven erroneous information contained within this “progressive” curriculum.
