Book Description

Good Parents, Tough Times focuses on the spiritual well-being of the parent as much as the behavior of the child. The authors draw parallels between the real-life struggles parents face today and those endured by the saints. They believe that the qualities that enabled the saints to face great troubles—charity, knowledge, faith, hope, patience, serenity, truth, and humility—can sustain parents dealing with serious problems in their families. They show how these virtues can strengthen resolve, temper anger, restore energy, and foster open and honest communication between parents and children.


While Good Parents, Tough Times is addressed primarily to Catholics, most of the advice is applicable to people of all faiths.

 

From the Back Cover

Timely Guidance and Inspiration for Parents of Children in Crisis

 

The bestselling authors of The Roller-Coaster Years, Parenting 911, and Cliques draw deeply on their faith and the rich Catholic spiritual tradition in this guide for parents of children in crisis.
In Good Parents, Tough Times, authors Charlene C. Giannetti and Margaret Sagarese focus on the spiritual well-being of the parent as much as the behavior of the child. The authors draw parallels between the real-life struggles parents face today and those endured by the saints. They believe that the qualities that enabled the saints to face great troubles—charity, knowledge, faith, hope, patience, serenity, truth, and humility—can help parents cope with a troubled child.
“This book provides what every parent needs: a chance to learn
from the saints and to look to them for encouragement and practical advice.”
—Scott Hahn, author of The Lamb’s Supper
“Deep, yet simple and practical, this book will help parents and all who
have teens in their lives to know better how to listen, pray, and help.”
—Fr. Paul Keenan, author of Heartstorming
“[Good Parents, Tough Times] not only offers parents the saints’ very practical advice about raising teens with faith, hope, and love, but also helps parents
receive the grace of the saints’ powerful intercession.”
—Bert Ghezzi, author of Voices of the Saints and Mystics and Miracles
