From the Inside Flap
irst published fifty years ago, How to Raise Good Catholic Children is a rare treat for today's parents: a wise and readable book on child care that derives its wisdom from the Catholic home rather than from psychologists.
Author Mary Reed Newland here draws on her own experiences as the mother of seven to show how the classic Christian principles of sanctity can be translated into terms easily applied to children even to the very young.
Because it's rooted in experience, not in theory, nothing that Mrs. Newland suggests is impossible or extraordinary. In fact, as you reflect on your experiences with your own children, you'll quickly agree that hers is an excellent commonsense approach to raising good Catholic children.
Let Mrs. Newland show you how to introduce even your littlest ones to God and develop in your growing children virtues.
Top customer reviews
Mary Reed Newland writes wonderfully in this detailed how-to book on raising Catholic children. The book was written 50 years ago, but it is as relevant today as ever, save for a few liturgical differences. Her style is very kind and gentle. It makes me wish that I was one of her children and had grown up with her teachings!
She is very specific in how to go about teaching such things as love of the Rosary and the Rite of Baptism. She gives examples of what to say and how to say it, but the way she does it is very gentle and subtle. This is not an in-your-face, do-it-my-way book. It's a great read and puts me in a great frame of mind to teach my own children.
If you are looking for guidance in how best to train your children in the Catholic faith, this is definitely the book for you!
