EP 127: Overcoming Obstacles to Catholic Parenting

I got a chance to be a returning guest on my friend Gary Michuta’s Virgin Most Power radio program “Hands On Apologetics” for a topic I know is top of mind for a lot of Catholic moms and dads: How to overcome obstacles to Catholic parenting.

To make sure I best used the time I had with Gary, I took to my Instagram to ask followers that they are struggling with most in encouraging their children to live faith-filled lives. I got so many great answers and suggestions, and there were definite themes. So I boiled all the responses down to three topics:

  1. How to protect children without oversheltering them?
  2. How to navigate family members who are nominal Catholics/anti-Catholic/leading openly sinful lives
  3. How to handle liberal public school environments

Gary and I spent 40 minutes talking through the above topics, and if you’ve struggled with any of these, I really hope you find this episode helpful.

You can listen to the episode here or listen to it on iTunesStitcherGoogle Play or iHeartRadio

And be sure to connect to Gary on his website GaryMichuta.com, grab a copy of one of his books, and hear him each weekday on his show Hands On Apologetics on Virgin Most Powerful Radio.
