About the Book

Do you wish you could have more time for conversations with your children, especially on truth and life issues? Do you wish you could show them how to make responsible decisions? Do you want them to really know and love God? Do you think your children will learn it all in Catechism class? You'll never know unless you teach them yourself. Catholic parents will find comfort in this parenting book when they discover how easy it is to converse and work with their children. For those under five, the conversations are about love and discipline; for older children, the discussions are on faith and respect; and for teens, the focus is on decision-making and defending faith and life, while rejecting peer pressure, drugs, alcohol, sexual abuse, depression, violence, and much more. In short (sometimes five-minute) sessions, families, even dysfunctional ones, come together to be strongly pro-life and pro-Catholic. These seeds of goodness are planted in one-on-one talks or in "Family Fun Time" activities. The Bible says, "I laid a foundation, and another man is building upon it. Let each man take care how he builds upon it." (1 Corinthians 3:10).
