Authors, Melissa Trevathan and Sissy Goff offer practical, sound advice in their latest book, Modern Parents Vintage Values. The book is broken into three sections: Modern Parents, Vintage Values and Timeless Truths. Each section tackles tough issues that parents face today (such as internet safety, texting/sexting, lack of respect, sexuality, drugs, alcohol, cutting, self harm, etc) and offers tips, solutions and ideas on how to recognize warning signs and address these issues with your child.
With over 60 years of combined experience as counselors and working with children, the authors definitely know their subject matter. I like how they took practical applications and interwove that advice with scriptural foundations and principles. I also like how the authors list “vintage” values (since so many of these appear to have fallen by the wayside) and they show parents how to teach and instill these into their children. Values such as kindness, respect, compassion, forgiveness, gratitude, integrity, and responsibility – all very important characteristics that parents should try to pass down to their children.
A chapter is dedicated to each value and the author also defines the value and breaks it down, so parents can see what it should look like and how to demonstrate it. You cannot go wrong in purchasing this book – in fact, if you are attempting to raise a child (or children) in modern society, this book is a great resource to help parents educate themselves and better prepare their children to be honorable men and women.
