Girl Scouts Should Leave Parenting Advice Alone, Stick to Cookies

The Girl Scouts decided to get involved with the nationwide discussion about sexual harassment by lecturing you on your family’s holiday gatherings. Do you tell your kids to hug and kiss relatives? You may be training them to put up with harassment and assault in the future, according to the Girl Scouts.

“In light of the Hollywood sexual harassment claims, Girl Scouts are trying to get you to start a conversation about consent with your children,” Glenn said on today’s show. “Now, it’s up to you whether you take that ridiculous advice or not. Every family dynamic is different.”

For the full story on the Girl Scouts’ holiday advice, read our explainer here.

GLENN: You’re a bad parent.

How do I know?

You insisted that your daughter hug her grandma and grandpop when they came over for Thanksgiving dinner.

Bad parent!

Did you know that you are teaching your daughter that she “owes” people physical affection? She will grow up thinking she owes anyone and everyone a hug…or more!

First she’s hugging grandma and then she’s on the streets selling herself!

That’s the ridiculous advice from the leaders of the Girl Scouts, anyway.

They wrote a post over the weekend titled “Reminder: She Doesn’t Owe Anyone a Hug. Not Even at the Holidays.”

They continue: “Have you ever insisted, “Uncle just got here—go give him a big hug!” or “Auntie gave you that nice toy, go give her a kiss,” when you were worried your child might not offer affection on her own? If yes, you might want to reconsider the urge to do that in the future. Think of it this way, telling your child that she owes someone a hug either just because she hasn’t seen this person in a while or because they gave her a gift can set the stage for her questioning whether she “owes” another person any type of physical affection when they’ve bought her dinner or done something else seemingly nice for her later in life.”

In light of the Hollywood sexual harassment claims, the Girl Scouts are trying to get you to start a conversation about consent with your children. It’s up to you to take their advice or not. Every family dynamic is different, but as a parent it is up to you to decide whether little Tina is just being rude to Uncle Tom by not saying hello and hugging him or your child is uncomfortable for some reason.

If you choose to take the Girl Scouts advice, consider the other side, also. You are making hugging family members and close friends a taboo act and creating fake hysteria about your child’s affection with loved ones.

I have my own advice for the Girl Scouts. Let the parents decide and stick to what you do best. And by that I mean make cookies.

Do you have the GUTS to fight for freedom?

If Republicans lose their majority in the U.S. Senate after the Georgia runoff election, we may be facing dark times. So here's what you need to do: it's time mentally to prepare to stand up for freedom, which will likely take a LOT of courage from ALL of us. But, Glenn says, 'I'm not sitting down.' And, it only takes 15-20 percent of us to change the world. Use this Thanksgiving Day to discuss with your families the grim times we potentially may face, and how together you can best articulate to others WHY America's core principles are so important to preserve. So, who's in? Do YOU have the guts to fight for freedom?

Far-left elites are using COVID to ‘reset’ America to socialism

Both Governor Newsom (California) and Governor Whitmer (Michigan) currently are being challenged by their state courts and governments for tyrannical policies issued during the COVID pandemic. And that's GREAT news because the 'Great Reset' continues to be pushed by far-left elites around the world…and Biden's team is in full support. Glenn explains how the Great Reset — a plan issued by the World Economic Forum — aims to use our current pandemic as a means to an end; they'll use COVID as an excuse to push 'stakeholder capitalism,' something similar to the economic system used today in China or the one used in 1930s Germany. Listen, as Glenn explains the TERRIFYING details to their plan…

Megyn Kelly UNCENSORED: It's Not Time to Unify, It's Time to FIGHT | Ep 88

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show." Now, Megyn and Glenn break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, Leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner … and is Fox News finished? Megyn and Glenn reminisce on their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with Donald Trump) and also give a look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. And the best takeaway from her time at NBC? "Jane Fonda was an ass."

How the downfall of socialist Yugoslavia is STRIKINGLY similar to America today

Glenn shares a now-viral video of a woman from Yugoslavia, who says she wants to warn Americans about what could become of our free nation soon. She details the history of her country and explains how leaders there used different tactics and phases to implement socialism so that they could gain total control. And, terrifyingly, the phases she describes are STRIKINGLY similar to the events and changes we've experienced in America over the past year.
