The numbers are not encouraging.  Boys are struggling like never before.  Fewer are going to college, more are living at home well into their 20’s, and 80% are leaving the faith of their parents within a year of graduating high school.  The influence of atheistic and pornographic websites can supplant the influence of even the best parents.   Raising a Modern Frontier Boy The numbers are not encouraging.  Boys are struggling like never before.  Fewer are going to college, more are living at home well into their 20’s, and 80% are leaving the faith of their parents within a year of graduating high school.  The influence of atheistic and pornographic websites can supplant the influence of even the best parents.   Raising a Modern Frontier Boy recounts the fascinating journey of writer and director John Grooters through the parenting years with his son, Jedidiah.  Their story culminates when the 19-year-old Jed takes a starring role in the feature film The Frontier Boys, and embodies the faith and values that he, by then, had chosen to embrace and live on his own.

    In John Grooter’s book Raising a Modern Frontier Boy, he gives the reader a glimpse inside his life during a pivotal period in the transformation of his son. While part of the story deals with John giving you a look into much of what went on in the making and the directing of the movie Frontier Boys, his main focus is on how he directed his son towards manhood. Raising a boy has been shown to be an arduous task for many families.

While part of the story deals with John giving you a look into much of what went on in the making and the directing of the movie Frontier Boys, his main focus is on how he directed his son towards manhood. Raising a boy has been shown to be an arduous task for many families. One of the greatest frontiers for any man is to be able to lead a son through the trail of life from adolescence to manhood. Many fathers feel inadequate or ill-equipped for numerous reasons. This book is an honest look into the raising of a son, which anyone can attest is no easy task. The fact that John speaks not only of the things he did well, but recognizing the places where he didn’t get it all right, yet through God’s grace and through others who were there to help steer Jed in, “the way he should go” makes a great testament to parenting done well. One of the things I love most about this book is that in the telling of this crucial period in John’s and Jed’s lives, a man is discovering the man that his son is becoming, all the while a son is discovering himself and what he’s made of. Another thing I love about this book is that you find yourself going through the highs and lows of it all through not only the vantage of John, the father and director, but Jed who is son and actor. A third thing I love is that this book delves into the character and morals that can be instilled in a young person when doing seemingly common and routine things; especially when you are strategic in those basic and ordinary things. This book isn’t just a book that holds value to fathers and sons, it’s also valuable to mothers, daughters, aunts, uncles, friends, mentors and anyone who desires to have a positive impact in the life of a young person; especially a boy who is on the road to manhood. My advice is that you don’t wait for Father’s Day, Mother’s Day or Graduation Day to gift this book. This book is a great gift for expectant parents and anyone at any time, during any stage of life.

Who will benefit most from the book? First of all, those men who need encouragement in their personal process of becoming frontier fathers. John Grooters and his son Jedidiah told their stories in such an honest, transparent and inspiring way that it truly can lift up some emotional burden from someone’s back. Secondly, those who are interested in the behind-the scene-details of making and directing of the film “The Frontier Boys”. A big plus for the book for its composition: the father telling his side of the story, the son revealing his side; practicing principles that end each chapter evoke the need for a personal self-examination and answers. I received this ebook from the publisher through Destiny Image Book Review program.

And the section: From parent to partner ...teaching about the transformation in parental roles as my son grows and matures. I appreciated Jed's honesty in sharing about his own struggles as a teenager. I also valued his biblical insights as he matured in his faith. I especially liked the duel father/ son writing format, giving me insight into both perspectives on the same events. Working in the film industry, I appreciated the behind-the-scenes stories John shared from his experience in making the film 'The Frontier Boys.' What an invaluable opportunity to make beautiful art with his own son!
