Forming Character in Adolescents
Will your children’s Catholic faith -- and morals -- survive adolescence? How to steer them safely through their teen years.
To his colleagues, Catholic University psychologist Dr. Rudolf Allers was best known for his scholarly attacks on Freudianism. But Catholic laymen of the 1940s and ‘50s knew him mostly through popular works like this one: an ingenious guide to help parents steer their children safely through the temptations and turbulence of adolescence.
Dr. Allers rejects the Freud-inspired myth that adolescent unhappiness is inevitable, and almost wholly due to sex. In jargon-free chapters, he explains:
- the general principles of adolescent development
- how best to understand, approach and influence teenagers
- features unique to adolescents
- daydreams and sexuality
- vocational guidance
Raising Chaste Catholic Men
Anxiety among Catholic mothers is sky high. How do we teach our sons to be chaste when a sex-obsessed culture is ready to drag our boys into the pit at every turn? All we want to do is protect the innocence of our little ones and the honor of our teens, yet the snares of ubiquitous porn, hook-up sex, the LGBTQ juggernaut, and the devaluing of true manhood appear unavoidable. What’s a mother to do?
