Advice Worth Ignoring: How Tuning Out the Experts Can Make You a Better Parent

$15.99
In Advice Worth Ignoring, Dr. Ray identifies fifty of the most common child-related truisms and parenting myths that can often mislead and undercut parents, and explains how the virtues of prudence, temperance and fortitude can help any parent discern the best course of action for his or her own family. Parents are encouraged to ask themselves: Does this have merit for our family, with our morals? Does it make sense? Does it align with wisdom confirmed through generations?

Covering a range of ages and stages, from the early years ("It's a stage; it will pass") to the teenage years ("Don't make your child lie"), this book gives dedicated parents the tools they need to spot the hidden assumptions colored by pop psychology, and make parenting choices that are consistent with raising up good Catholic kids.

Parents who read Advice Worth Ignoring will feel empowered to judge the advice that's right for their own family, regardless of who doles it out. Contains a special section specifically for adoptive parents.

    Winning the Discipline Debates: Dr. Ray Coaches Parents

    product image
    $15.99
    Winning the Discipline Debates covers a series of the most common (and most frustrating) discipline scenarios between parents and kids. Written in a script format, dialogue between the characters is interspersed with Dr. Ray's comments and observations, and each scene ends with a summary and discipline ideas from Dr. Ray. As a father of ten (with his children's ages ranging from twelve through twenty-four), clinical psychologist, public speaker, and national radio host, families have literally been Dr. Ray's life. Learn, laugh, and let Dr. Ray coach you to stand strong and become a more confident parent.

    Some of the debates covered in the book include:
  • A child who is wide awake and a mom who just wants to get some sleep
  • A grandmother who interferes with a dad's discipline--and a child who suffers because of it
  • Parents who argue in front of their kids--a lose/lose situation
  • A mom who struggles to enforce the consequences she's decided upon
  • Two siblings who are fighting and a mom who tries to sort things out
  • From preschool to the late teen years, Dr. Ray coaches parents on how to make discipline less wordy, less frequent, less frustrating--and more definite. With Dr. Ray as your coach, everyone wins!
