with great power...
...comes great responsibility." We have all heard the old adage, but there is a seemingly new reality in the faith: YOU are the primary catechist of your child! It seems like an incredibly daunting task to share the faith with your teenagers--especially when they have little to no interest in what you have to say. We are here to provide resources, inspiration, and helpful tips and tricks to make Catholic parenting at least a fraction easier. We offer parenting sessions, as well as a frequently updated stream of articles, videos, podcasts, and even clothing stores that will help you to raise your child in the virtue of Truth.
Please stay tuned for more information on our upcoming Fall Parenting Series for the Fall 2016! Our parenting series features speakers from around the Archdiocese of Atlanta who are members of the clergy, parents of college-aged children, and licensed counselors who understand the hardship and the joys of raising Catholic teenagers. We meet conveniently during EDGE and LifeTeen (6:30-8:00 PM) in order to meet your whole family's needs!
Please take some time to view the following videos, websites, articles, and podcasts that will help you to parent your teenager through whatever circumstances they may face:
