I'm curious, in the year 2019, which city (or if no cities are like this, what region) is the most socially conservative in the state of Mississippi? Would Alabama be more like this than Mississippi? I would prefer to live somewhere that parents don't allow their young girls to dress in revealing clothes and the teenagers aren't obsessed with drugs, alcohol, sex, rap music, if such a place even exists anymore?

Not dissing anybody's lifestyle choices so if you have a problem with my criteria I really don't care. You will never change my mind. Just accept it for what it is and help me out so I can stay out of your hair easier. There's no reason to make this thread any sort of political discussion.

I appreciate anybody who can help me.

I think they are pretty similar, especially in small towns, off the coast. Jackson and Tupelo and Memphis are the 'cities' you want. College towns will obviously be more lenient and liberal. I'd probably look into Madison if you want Jackson, or Tupelo anywhere, and Hernando outside Memphis. Closer you get to Memphis the more of the riff raff you'll run into. I knew guys from Southaven/Olive Branch in college and they were pretty much city-slickers.

If you really want conservatism a small town is probably your best route, but you'll have to deal with everybody knowing everybody. Three that are decent are Corinth, Laurel and Brookhaven, depending on what you want to do. Ripley is a decent small town for raising kids.

You want conservative? Stay in the Southwest corner of Mississippi. South of Natchez, West of Mccomb. Places like Liberty and such. These areas are far from any influences and bigger towns and cities. Here is where you'll find the most rebel flags and unsolved lynchings as any area of the state.

If you're trying to keep your kids away from modern trappings, turn off the TV, internet, and cell phones. Good luck!

I think you should be looking at Utah, more than Mississippi.
Logan, UT.

If you don't have to worry about a job and can afford private schools, Carrollton is a great place to live. However, I don't think you will find many teenage boys not obsessed with alcohol and sex.

It would take a little bit of research, but I think the city or town or little community that has the highest percentage of residents that have at least an upper middle class income or higher, might be the place you're looking for. Those seem to be the places where intact, 2 parent households are the rule rather than the exception and both parents are most involved with their children's education and upbringing and monitor the quality and the values of the people who they allow to have influence in their children's lives.

Places like that don't exist I don't care what part of the state you go to, social media and the news still make it out to everywhere in America. It reminds me of an episode of Longmire where they bust a group of drug dealers in rural Wyoming and the deputy sheriff makes the comment that the kids are dressed like they are from Chicago.

Those are no more conservative than what you would find elsewhere in the South. I've been around there.
