Raising Boys #4 : Necessary Space

Fr. Michael Siney, LC

WOW!!! What an amazing mom Father Mike have!!!

This one is so tricky for me...I am a control freak, a nag, and want to be involved with everything my kids do, say, or think.

These are so great! Short and helpful! Really make you think. I was afraid to listen to them at first- I feel like such a washout so often as a mom, and I have mostly boys! but I could really see exactly what he is saying and I was really encouraged! THANKS, SAM!

Thanks for posting these. Short and to the point. I think father was speaking right to me in this one. I ALWAYS over analyze my son(And all my kids). Also I have a tendency to dump emotions on them. I know I will not always be perfect, but I will think before I start unloading on them. Thank You, Sam

You may be interested in our new book, "Raising Real Men: Surviving, Teaching and Appreciating Boys". Written by Christian parents of six boys (and two girls), it offers a practical, Biblically based approach to raising men of God in a secularized, gender-confused world.
