Real World Parents

Real World Parents: Christian Parenting for Families Living in the Real World
By Mark Matlock

Excellent book! Fear based parenting can lead to legalism, help your kids ( and yourself) see their part in God's story line, rather than operating in the story line the world tells them is true. I don't agree with some of the first 2 chapters but after that it is a wonderful book.

Where I disagree with the author is that the world isn’t getting better nor is it static, that is not the nature of sin, sin causes degeneration. True there aren’t “new” sins, but the world has gotten so far from God and His holy standard that many sins are excepted as normal, not harmful, or are a valid choice.

Once I got past the first 2 chapters I really loved the message of this book. It is all about teaching yourself and your children a Biblical Worldview from Gods point of view.
Mark Matock has a heart for youth and teens. He has several other workbook Bible studies for teens that I plan on getting for Emilie.

I really like media analysis guide, helping kids and self to make wise choices with all forms of media be it TV, music, web and books. The Story Worldview analysis will be used in our literature classes.

Each chapter has a few questions for digging deeper that would make this great for a Bible study for parenting/and or worldview. I wholehearted recommend this book.

Thank you TB&B Media for the copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
