The cookie crumbles: American girls abandoning Girl Scouts.

More girls choosing alternatives.

‘I felt misled, betrayed, offended, and hurt’

Joan Stromberg is the owner and publisher of the Catholic-focused Little Flowers Girls’ Club materials. She said Little Flowers reinforces the Catholic faith and has a fun, club-like atmosphere.

“Every little girl I know that has been in Little Flowers has loved it. It has been a positive experience,” said Stromberg.

She said some Catholic parishes have banned Girls Scouts altogether because of the Planned Parenthood connection, leaving some families to look for a Catholic alternative. Abortion is condemned by the Catholic Church.
