  • Parenting Your Kids With Grace

    $16.95

    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:

    1. Are Catholic families called to be different from other families in the way we relate to one another in the home? If so, how?
    2. What does an authentic, family-based approach to Catholic spirituality look like in practice?
    3. What can the latest research tell us about creating a faithful home and raising faithful kids?
    4. 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.

  • Standing Strong : Good Discipline Makes Great Teens

    $18.95

    With wit and wisdom, Dr. Ray Guarendi gives parents the tools they need not only to navigate the teen years but also to enjoy them. Teens are “full of life, enthusiasm, energy, and laughter,” Dr. Ray asserts, in defiance of a culture that conditions us to expect a far gloomier reality. Too often, the world tells parents to be content with mediocrity instead of the prospect of raising respectful and responsible children with strong character.

    In a lively question-and-answer format, Dr. Ray unpacks issues ranging from sibling relationships and peer pressure to curfews and chores to overcoming backtalk and teaching your kids to avoid drugs. He equips parents to give their teens a safer, more stable adolescence and help them develop virtues for a lifetime. If you feel as if you’ve been a weak disciplinarian, Dr. Ray explains that “there are . . . critical reasons to reverse your parenting, even if it seems late.” He offers practical approaches such as:

    *Four tips to help you enjoy your kids’ teen years
    *Three techniques for becoming a calmer parent
    *Five ways to monitor your child’s use of technology
    *Four simple house rules that lead to success
    *Four consequences to curb nasty talk
    *A strategy to motivate underachievers

    You will also learn four key sayings for communicating more effectively with your teens. In addition, you will find out specific ways to cultivate an attitude of gratitude in your kids. Most significantly, you will learn how to help your children treat you with respect, so that they will develop this habit in their relationships with others as well. As you grow in becoming a stronger parent with calm, loving resolve, you will learn how to foster quality time with your teens and have real fun together.

    This book is wise, perceptive, and laugh-out-loud funny. Dr. Ray uses his trademark humor-with-a-dash-of-sarcasm to give those parents who are barely treading water some good, sound, logical advice to change the tone and tenor of their households for the better.

  • Talking With Your Teen About Sex

    $19.95

    Are you looking for the right words–and a boost of confidence–to build trust, reduce shame, and have an ongoing and compassionate conversation with your teen about sex, one that also reinforces Catholic values?

    In Talking with Your Teen About Sex, clinical psychologist Julia Sadusky answers most commonly asked questions and offers practical advice on addressing puberty, dating, intimacy, technology, pornography, and other experiences your child may navigate in their teen years and beyond.

    Let’s face it: if you don’t proactively talk with your kids about sexuality-related experiences before puberty, they will likely learn from their friends, social media, or other sources that might not share your Christian values.

    Intentionally setting aside time and focus to discuss these critical facets of human sexuality will become some of the most important minutes of your life as a parent. As you listen to what your teen knows and thinks about critical and hot-button topics and discover what you love most about their curiosities and individuality, you will both foster a deeper connection as you explore their belovedness as children of God.

    Informed by the latest clinical research and drawing on the same guiding principles as Sadusky’s first book, Start Talking to Your Kids about Sex–which focuses on elementary-age children–Talking with Your Teen about Sex helps equip parents to be primary educators as teens move through adolescence. Guided by Catholic teaching, this book, intended for ages ten and up, goes beyond the typical “sex talk.” It will equip you to confidently communicate with your child about topics such as bodily changes, physical boundaries, sexual ethics, and masturbation with greater comfort. You’ll find concrete advice and ready-to-go conversation starters for your biggest questions, including:

    *Why am I having such a hard time starting the conversation?
    *What is happening to my child’s body?
    *How do I actually have the sex talk?
    *How do I respond to crushes and dating?
    *What if they tell me something bad happened to them?

    Sadusky gives specific attention to the ways in which boys and girls experience puberty and sexuality differently. The sexual and pubescent development of each sex is addressed individually throughout the book, and in some cases, separate chapters are designated for discussions with boys and others for discussions with girls.

    Finally, Sadusky will challenge you in ways that might feel uncomfortable at ti
