Discipline That Lasts a LifetimeDiscipline That Lasts a Lifetime (Servant Books, 2003) focuses directly on discipline, answering over 100 of the most common, and most frustrating discipline questions parents ask. Sibling Quibbling, Backtalk, Bedtime Badtimes, Temper Tempests, Whining, Birth Order, “Strong-Willed” conduct ― if kids do it, and parents face it ― Discipline That Lasts a Lifetime aims to answer it. As with all my books and tapes, this book comes with my “Talk Show Guarantee” ― your kids will never appear on any afternoon TV talk show, on stage that is. I can’t do anything about them wanting to sit in the audience.

Packed with plenty of real life ideas, this book will improve your self-confidence, authority and peace of mind as a parent. Shunning psychobabble and psychological correctness, its goal is to put the grown up in the family in charge. And when parents rule with love and discipline, children benefit in ways that last a lifetime.

Topics include:

  • Discipline is love in action
  • Psychological correctness and other disciplinary worries
  • Discipline and the nature of kids
  • Misbehavior in word and deed
  • Disciplining against the flow

What Catholics Really BelieveWhat Catholics Really Believe

A theologically approved, and fabulously insightful, illuminating, and entertaining dialogue between two friends: Dr. Ray Guarendi and Rev. Kevin Fete. In this transcript and study guide prepared from the television series of the same name, they explore the common misunderstandings of Catholicism and demystify the history of Christianity. Anything but a dry presentation, these guys have fun with what is typically a dry subject — great stuff for the making of saints. With a mixture of history, doctrine, and fun debate, they mine what is often overlooked. Far from two guys’ opinions, the programs quote extensively form Scripture, the Catechism of the Catholic Church, and writings of the early Church Fathers. This book and study guide, along with the companion DVD will enhance any study of the Catholic faith. They are designed specifically for personal and group educational use in parishes, homes, and schools.
