Format: Paperback
Counselors Melissa Trevathan and Sissy Goff work in a counseling office of 8 professionals who see over 200 kids a week! They know what modern families are facing. They hear it every day. Despite the seemingly depressing environment, they still believe in the value of compassion, gratitude, kindness, patience, manners, integrity, responsibility and confidence. They believe there are timeless truths that every parent should remember while parenting today's modern kids (especially teens!)

The book is divided into 3 sections. In the first section, Melissa and Sissy share some scary stories of modern day issues facing the family. Whether a parent is walking with their teen through the valley of social media, peer pressure and lack of respect or they are trying to raise kids without the sense of entitlement, today's parents have a tough job.

There is hope: the second section addresses the vintage values that all parents hope to instill into their children. The best part about this section is they not only address how these values will look in children and teens, they also specify how to instill them into the specific ages! At the end of each chapter they take you on something they call "A Sunday Drive".

The final section called "Timeless Truths" introduces who enables parents to parent through the minefield of today's parenting environment. They answer those questions that haunt you. They bring home hope to the modern mom or dad.

I really enjoyed reading this book. It's not an easy-simple read. The information is meaty. Each chapter not only gives you a wealth of statistics, situations and results, they give you how-to information. The Sunday Drives are fun ideas to get you connected with your kids.

And since we have no common sense a book like this can come in very handy. I am not trying to put anyone down, I'm sure I suffer from a lack of common sense myself, but the lack of people able to parent their children these days is abominable.

But how are they supposed to know what to do? So many who are parents now were raised in families where both parents have worked and the children were raised in daycare and school instead of at home. Again, I'm not coming down on people, I'm just stating the reality of our society at this time. So, essentially, if parents didn't "parent" you, how are you to know how to deal with your own children? Modern Parents, Vintage Values steps in to help parents understand issues children are facing today and how to deal with it as a Parent.

Melissa Trevathan, M.R.E. and Sissy Goff, M.Ed., LPC-MHSP, counselors at Daystar Counseling Ministries, sound like they have pretty much heard and seen it all in regards to children and their parents. Using the experience they have gleaned over the years, they offer parents practical, though not always easy, advice on how to deal with modern problems every family will face. Values are encouraged, such as kindness, gratitude, integrity, and many more while also dealing with the entitlement issue so many people seem to have. This is a great resource for all of us raising children these days.

I received this book free of charge from B&H Publishing Group through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

This book is written for parents to guide children in a digital age. Ever feel like a parent feeling increasingly analog in a growing digital world? Ever feel hopeless about technology leaving you behind? What about the modern addictions, the fears of growing up in an adult world, the dangers of entitlement, and many more? Trevathan and Goff brings together a whole list of relevant modern issues that young children face. They explain clearly the six technological issues (cell phones, gaming, Internet, social media, chat, online communications), the need to move from entitlement to gratitude, the instilling of respect to learn to treat others the way we like to be treated ourselves, addictions (alcohol, drugs, sex, eating disorders, self-harm), emotions (anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, high stress, anger), and many more. Each issue comes with a list of do's and don'ts for parents, complete with a delightful "Sunday Drive" activities that the whole family can participate in.

Part Two goes into "Vintage Values" where the virtues are defined, exemplified, understood, and practiced. The nine virtues are kindness, compassion, forgiveness, gratitude, integrity, responsibility, patience, confidence, and manners. There is also an accompanying "Sunday Drive" on how to incorporate these values into the lives of the whole family. There is a helpful section with each chapter that deals specifically with obstacles surrounding the teaching of such values. This is important because very often, the virtues are a no-brainer, but the practice of it seems most challenging to implement.What is also helpful is the specific instructions given not just to parents, but also to children, teenagers, and older adults.

Part Three covers "timeless truths.
