Believe it or not, the Catholic family isn’t primarily a human institution. It’s a divine one. By uniting with the sacramental life of the Church, your common, ordinary, crazy family becomes something sacred, a “domestic church."
Family therapist and parent Gregory Popcak and his wife, Lisa, are back with Parenting Your Kids with Grace. Building on their best-selling book Parenting with Grace, first published twenty years ago, this new volume draws on the same parenting principles and provides up-to-date research to guide parents through each stage of child development from birth to age ten.
Practical, faithful, and humorous, Parenting Your Kids with Grace addresses four key questions:
- Are Catholic families called to be different from other families in the way we relate to one another in the home? If so, how?
- What does an authentic, family-based approach to Catholic spirituality look like in practice?
- What can the latest research tell us about creating a faithful home and raising faithful kids?
- How can Catholic families be outposts of evangelization and positive social change?
By checking our basic assumptions about parenting against both the Church’s vision and what science can teach about living out that vision in healthy ways, we can discover God’s plan for parenting healthy, godly kids.
