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!

I'm quite a bit older than the X Generation, but I enjoyed this book. If you're trying to raise godly children in a world that pulls them the other way, Generation NeXt Parenting was written for you. The writer makes no claim to being perfect. In fact,she hangs her imperfections out for everyone to see. She also presents the characteristics of her generation in an apt and entertaining manner. I think most people will find a bit of themselves in this book. They will also find good advice, tips, scripture, and welcome solutions to real problems.

This is a different kind of parenting book. It doesn't lecture, just presents ideas that have been tried and proven they will work. Tricia Goyer has played an active part in parenting programs and young mom's groups. Her Generation NeXt Parenting is a down to earth book filled with advice from a woman who's been there and knows from experience what works and what doesn't. Highly recommended.

Format: Paperback
"Generation NeXt" turned out to be an intriguing read for me. I am on the line between Boomers and GenXers. Different sources have placed me in each camp, so if I'm a GenXer, I'm an old one.

My review will be from the perspective of an old GenXer with a teenager and young adult children. At times, as I read "Generation NeXt" I felt exactly that, old, but then I'd turn a few pages and identify with exactly what Tricia had penned.

Had I read this book when my children were younger, I think I would have gained insight leading to freedom from some guilt baggage I lugged around for far too many years.

Tricia's "Generation NeXt Parenting" is an encouraging pat on the back with plenty of spiritual and practical challenges tossed in. She doesn't take traditional problems and toss out advice on how to handle it as much as she covers the holistic issues of parenting and Christlikeness.

If you are looking for another parenting book that has an index and multiple tips on how to handle potty training, you won't find much in "Generation NeXt." However, if you desire to dig to underlying motivations on your part and your children's behaviors, there is help offered here. Of course, a lot of the advice is what we who call ourselves "Christian" know because it's preached from the pulpit, radio and other books. But it bears repeating until we "get" it. Tricia gives practical ideas for how to get on track or back on track spiritually so that you can be the parent God calls you to be.

I learned far more from "Generation NeXt" than I thought I would. Tricia peppers her thoughts with those from other struggling parents and facts regarding the unique building blocks GenXer's have been given.

I thought of several friends who have younger children who could benefit from this book and intend to get a copy to them.

Format: Paperback
"Where's the beef?" Right here, in this contemporary compendium filled with helpful advice for Generation X'ers, the generation born from 1961 to 1981. Whether you are an X'er yourself or from another generation, you'll 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 Goyer's 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. "Why didn't I think of that?" easily turns to, "I can do that." Goyer's 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 can't help but smile and reminisce. Each chapter in Generation NeXt Parenting also begins with a quote from a popular song of the 70's and 80's. 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 you'll 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, isn't that what we all strive for?
