Parenting

catholic parentingThere’s no school for parenting! This is the kind of exclamation one often hears from parents trying to raise children, perhaps especially teenagers, in today’s society. How much television should they watch? What about the Internet? Should I spank? What can I do to get them to mind me, particularly at dinner time? Any recommended schooling options? When is a good time to discuss the birds and the bees? Bed time? Curfew? Dress? The following links are meant as a simple assist in the challenging but hopefully joyous task of parenting.
