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
• Song lyrics
• Study questions

More than a "tell you how" parenting guide, Generation NeXt Parenting is an "encourage" you parenting guide. Tricia Goyer, the author, reveals many of the reasons why GenX parents react in certain ways and she offers simple ways to improve. Her advice and encouragement is always accompanied with a biblical reference to tie the author's words to the Word. The author gives lots of interesting facts about the different generations and their different characteristics. Another interesting feature is all the quotes from other GenX parents giving their point-of-view. In additon, with all the 80s music lyric references, how could the GenX member not "feel right at home?"The book is well written in simple language. It doesn't come from some "too hard to read" technical perspective, but from the perspective of a fellow struggling GenX parent. Ms. Goyer notes that she too struggles with parenting issues at times, so the reader is placed (not beneath) but right beside the author...as we all are seeking to be the parents that God wants us to be.A study guide (by chapter) is included at the end of the book for a more indepth personal look at each chapter...and each section complete with a number of biblical references for study.There's so much great information in this book!Tricia ends the book on such a positive note that you can't help but be proud to be a part of GenX and encouraged to be the best GenX parent that you can be!

Wheres the beef? Right here, in this contemporary compendium filled with helpful advice for Generation Xers, the generation born from 1961 to 1981. Whether you are an Xer yourself or from another generation, youll find tons of rock-solid wisdom set in an easy-to-read format. Tricia Goyer peppers the book with questions answered not only by experts in the field, but by parents in the trenches. The advice offered is practical and down to earth, but based always on Biblical principles. With Goyers steady encouragement through the book, she helps us realize that we can make the changes that will help to change and fortify us as parents. Goyers light-hearted style makes you want to try the tips in the book, and to work out the Digging Deeper Study Guide questions at the end of the book. Many of the references evoke a right old trip down memory lane. You cant help but smile and reminisce. Each chapter in Generation NeXt Parenting also begins with a quote from a popular song of the 70s and 80s. From the get-go, with the cover picture of a black Trans Am with a Blondie bumper sticker, an 80s RUL license plate, and a Baby on Board displayed, you know youll be in for a treat. Goyer slips in fun facts and stats mixed with present day concerns, like How much Nintendo is too much? Goyer offers faith-based answers to things we all struggle with. In the chapter Faith, not Fear, Goyer brings it down to this question: Of course we believe in a victorious life eternal, but what about faith for victorious life in the present? And, really, isnt that what we all strive for? Its right to keep our eyes forward and focused towards the prize at the end of the race, but its the race itself that we have to keep in training for on a daily basis. And Generation NeXt Parenting is a great tool to train with, hand in hand with your Bible. This guide is truly a plethora of practical help. I highly, highly recommend this book.
