Posted on: 05/9/17 3:30 AM | by Jonathan McKee

Many of you have been asking me about the free 7-week parenting curriculum I announced on social media last month.

It’s here!

We just uploaded the first two videos to our “If I Had a Parenting Do Over” playlist on YouTube, and the remaining 5 are going up in the next 24 hours.

I actually got the idea during Continue reading “Free 7-week Parenting Curriculum” »

Your stars

Posted on: 02/16/17 4:30 AM | by Jonathan McKee

As one of my loyal blog readers, you know I love giving you free stuff and rarely ask you for anything in return.

Today I ask for one simple thing… your stars.

Okay… I guess I’m actually asking you to read my newest book (hundreds of you have already bought it), because that’s the only way you can give it five stars. I’m talking about my brand new parenting book, If I Had a Parenting Do Over. Amazon has it in stock now and I’m asking my readers to simply pop onto Amazon and post a quick review after you read the book.

Here’s what others are already saying about it Continue reading “Your stars” »

Learning from Past Parenting Mistakes

(The following is an exclusive excerpt from Jonathan McKee’s brand new book, If I Had a Parenting Do Over, released this week.)

Most parents don’t advertise, “Here’s where I messed up!

It’s embarrassing!

So they keep it to themselves. Sadly, this keeps Continue reading “Where I Messed Up” »

If you’d like a sneak peek

Posted on: 01/17/17 4:23 AM | by Jonathan McKee

As one of my regular blog readers, you know I enjoy giving you unique opportunities to read and try out resources before they’re even finished, chiming in with your opinion. This month I have one of those opportunities.

At the end of this month I’ll turn in a finished manuscript to my publisher—my newest book-in-process—The Teens Guide to Social Media and Mobile Devices. This is the first time I’m even releasing this title (it comes out later this year).

Here’s where you come in. I’m looking for Continue reading “If you’d like a sneak peek” »

Do you want a “Do Over?”

Posted on: 01/11/17 12:43 PM | by Jonathan McKee

It’s time! (I’m so excited!)

My publisher just emailed, and they’ve received my brand new book, If I Had a Parenting Do Over, fresh from the printer… and boxes are on their way to my house, my upcoming workshops, Amazon, LifeWay… and all the other book stores. (Many of you saw Jim Daly talking with me about this book on Focus on the Family’s Facebook page just a few weeks ago).

And Amazon is literally crazy right now! “Crazy” in a good way.

Amazon changes prices all the time… so this could change before you even read this. But at this second… as I type this… they have my new book for the best you’ll get it. Get this Continue reading “Do you want a “Do Over?”” »

Responding to argumentative teenagers

Posted on: 12/19/16 4:00 AM | by Jonathan McKee

Jim-Daly-John-Fuller-Jonathan-McKeeMany of you caught when I was a guest on Focus on the Family’s daily broadcast last month (a video clip of that show HERE). Focus had me back last week to continue the conversation with Jim Daly and John Fuller about parenting…

…and this time to talk about the 7 vital changes I’d make If I Had a Parenting Do Over.

While I was there they filmed a quick Facebook video about “Why teenagers argue with their parents!”

Good times!PARENTING-DO-OVER-cover-WEB

(And as nice as it is to buy it from Focus… Amazon has it at the moment for a crazy pre-sale price of just $6 and change!)

My Top 5 Titles in 2016

Posted on: 12/15/16 4:00 AM | by Jonathan McKee

MY-TOP-FIVEThe year-end is upon us and we’re looking back at the best and worst of 2016. Here’s yet another Top 5:

At the beginning of 2016 my 19th book hit the shelves, and I signed contracts for two more, one which I finished writing this summer and will release next month. (You’ll hear about the second one soon enough—but I’ll tell you this. It’s based off the popularity of my candid book to young men, but this one is to ALL teens about what it actually looks like to be wise with social media.)

I always find it interesting to see which of my books resonated the most with readers… I can never predict it! Continue reading “My Top 5 Titles in 2016” »

“Guy’s Guide” a Cyber-Monday Hit

Posted on: 11/28/16 4:27 AM | by Jonathan McKee

Amazon BooksIt’s always interesting to see which resources are a hit during that key shopping weekend Black-Friday through Cyber-Monday. And this year… it’s a bold little devotional for young men!

It’s crazy to watch which books Amazon move. Amazon ranks the books hourly so anyone can see how books are ranking among books in a certain category… or among ALL BOOKS EVER! And this weekend my candid little book for guys is going gangbusters!
