Speak to Your Children by Mary Lee Dey

Do you want to have “79 handy conversations” with your children as they grow?  Do you want to “raise dynamic Catholic leaders on truth and life issues for a better world?”  If your answer is “yes” to both questions, then this book is for you. 

The author volunteered for Birthright Crisis Pregnancy for 21 years and found many girls needed knowledge on how to make good marriages for themselves and their future families.  The book begins with “Family Fun Time” for 2 to 10 year olds so that children bond with their parents.  The goal is that the children, as teenagers, will listen to their parents as parents make use of later chapters.

Mrs. Dey also taught natural family planning and is a former teacher for NFP International.  In her own words, Mary has this to say about her book.  “For those under five, the conversations are about love and discipline; for older children, the discussions are on faith and respect; and for teens, the focus is on decision-making and defending faith and life, and on rejecting peer pressure, drugs, alcohol, sexual abuse, depression, violence, and much more.”

The book is available at https://www.iuniverse.com/en/search?query=Speak+to+Your+Children (or iuniverse.com) and is in English and Spanish. It has the Imprimatur.

In a review my husband said:  “Overall, you have a very good resource for parents.  I am sure that parents who use this with their children will be doing a favor for themselves as well as their children.”
