If you're looking for ways to include parents in the catechesis of children, this little book offers a variety of approaches that have worked in both upper and lower grades. Avoid communication mistakes with the counsel given in Connecting with Parents.
The General Directory for Catechesis specifically states that parents are responsible for the religious development of their children. After discussing such matters as trends in secular education and adult education and describing the benefits of involving the entire family in their children's religious development, the author presents the practical, nitty-gritty ways of actually doing this. Written from practical wisdom gained from extensive experience "in the trenches," Connecting With Parents covers all the bases, from planning before the school year even begins to projects in and out of the classroom. Tips on sacramental preparation are also included.
