  5. Orthodox Christian Parenting

    Orthodox Christian Parenting

    $34.95

    Out of stock

    C G's C Orthodox Christian Parenting is a must-have book for the modern Orthodox family struggling with the issue of how to transmit the beauty and values of our faith to childrenconstantly bombarded with worldly superficial distractions. This is a wonderful collection of articles, impressions, and suggestions from a wide variety of Orthodox sources. The casual reader need not fear being hammered by authoritative directives. The overall tone of this collection is very helpful and nonjudgmental. All phases of family life are covered in this volume, from marriage to sending an adult child out into the world and all the stages of child-rearing in between. I found myself captivated by the descriptions of young parents creatively engaging their young children in the traditions and rituals of of the church and thinking "I wish I had thought of that".One need not agree with every statement included in this volume to be ultimately enlightened and inspired by the rare love expressed here by people who truly believe that children have souls and that parents have spiritual responsibilities.
