"However great the mass of the building you may wish to design or erect, the taller the building is to be, the deeper you will dig the foundation"
(St. Augustine, Sermon 69.2, quoted in Manlio Simonetti)
Parents are the primary educators of their children; they are responsible for molding the "whole" child. A child's core needs to be well formed including their psychological, spiritual, physical, cognitive and social dimensions.
Parenting can be challenging for a variety of reason and whether you have one child or more. The culturally popular approach claims that it takes people plus parents to raise a whole child. This often creates hurdles rather than helps for parents - particularly parents with teens. These obstructions challenge parents who want to be - and should be - their children's primary advocate and teacher.
The challenge to raising godly teens can sometimes feel as if you are engaged in a full-scale culture war. But we have several field guides for you.
Fortifying Families of Faith is in the business to help parents connect to their teens. We are in the business of helping families stay connected by offering resources that are practical and time honored, Catholic in perspective and invaluable to all families.
We are taking our message cross country; parents no matter where they live, what culture they identify with or language they speak share similar concerns, hopes, and dreams for their family and their children. To bring us to your area or to attend a training session for parents click here.
