"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 Dominos 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.
