Wanna Do It Right
Without the Expert Advice?
Looking for practical, doable tips and guidance for raising todays kids? Want to help them love God and be all that they can be (even if they dont join the Army)?
If 70s and 80s bands (Run DMC), fashion (hot pink anything), and technology (music on cassette) bring back vivid youthful memories, Generation NeXt Parenting is the resource for you. Like secrets exchanged at recess with a trusted friend, this book offers helpful hints for raising your children during this exact time in history. Extensive research, input from hundreds of Gen X moms and dads, and a variety of Scripture references will help you navigate even the toughest parenting dilemmas.
"Chock-full of useful quotes from experts and everyday parents, this is a grace-infused handbook for Gen Xers navigating the parenting journey." -Mary E. DeMuth, Author of Building the Christian Family You Never Had
"As a young father, I not only relate to Tricias message, but Im very encouraged that there is a fantastic parenting resource for our generation." -Jordan Rubin, Founder of Garden of Life and author of The Great Physicians RX for Health and Wellness
This book is designed like a magazine (not because you miss reading Seventeen, but because no parent has time to read a book cover to cover) and includes:
• Quotes from fellow Gen X parents • Stats • Quizzes • Sidebars • Song lyrics • Study questions
