Publisher's Description

In Advice Worth Ignoring, Dr. Ray identifies fifty of the most common child-related truisms and parenting myths that can often mislead and undercut parents, and explains how the virtues of prudence, temperance and fortitude can help any parent discern the best course of action for his or her own family. Parents are encouraged to ask themselves: Does this have merit for our family, with our morals? Does it make sense? Does it align with wisdom confirmed through generations?

Covering a range of ages and stages, from the early years ("It’s a stage; it will pass") to the teenage years ("Don’t make your child lie"), this book gives dedicated parents the tools they need to spot the hidden assumptions colored by pop psychology, and make parenting choices that are consistent with raising up good Catholic kids.

Parents who read Advice Worth Ignoring will feel empowered to judge the advice that’s right for their own family, regardless of who doles it out. Contains a special section specifically for adoptive parents.

Author Bio

Dr. Ray Guarendi is a clinical psychologist, prolific author and speaker, and nationally syndicated radio host. His radio show, The Doctor Is In, can be heard weekdays on EWTN, Ave Maria Radio, and Sirius XM. His many books include Discipline That Lasts a Lifetime, You’re a Better Parent Than You Think, and Winning the Discipline Debates. He and his wife are the parents of ten children.

Editorial Reviews

"If you only read one parenting book this year, make it this one. Dr. Ray dismantles all of the misguided ideas about parenting that flood our society today, and leaves you with common-sense wisdom that makes you feel calm, equipped, and excited to face your day as a parent. When you're done with this book you'll feel as if a huge weight has been taken from your shoulders." — Jennifer Fulwiler, radio host, bestselling author, and mom of six

"In Advice Worth Ignoring, Dr. Ray continues to provide parents with ideas on how to raise children who will love them and love God. Unlike many ’experts’ whose only experience with children seems to derive from case studies, Ray has raised ten kids (or as he says his wife has since he has been busy writing books on raising kids). His experiences with his own children are not only insightful but also heartwarming, making this book both instructive, charming, and fun to read!"—Dr. Mary Kay Clark, Director, Seton Home Study School

"Advice Worth Ignoring is a reassuring handbook for Catholic parents who want to raise their children to become confident and compassionate adults. Dr. Ray presents answers to many of the most pressing questions about how to identify and resist cultural messages that are based not on Catholic values but on pop psychology which have the potential to undermine parents and tear apart families." — Thomas S. Monaghan, Founder of Domino’s Pizza, Ave Maria University, and Ave Maria School of Law

"Dr. Ray is a voice of reason in what is often an unreasonable time. He offers insight and hope for the daunting job of parenting with advice that takes into account our children's spiritual wellbeing, not just behavior modification. He makes us laugh, think and reach for the best in us." Rose Malavolti, Professional educator, speaker, and mother of 21 children.
