Catholic Connection – Jan 22, 2024 – Hr 2

Dr. Ray Guarendi is back with another book, “Standing Strong: Good Discipline Makes Great Teens.” He tells us about it. Gail Buckley Barringer has our Bible verse of the week.




Segment 1 – Intro and News


Segment 2 & 3 – STANDING STRONG – Good Discipline Makes Great Teens
“With wit and wisdom, Dr. Ray Guarendi gives parents the tools they need not only to navigate the teen years but also to enjoy them. Teens are “full of life, enthusiasm, energy, and laughter,” Dr. Ray asserts, in defiance of a culture that conditions us to expect a far gloomier reality. Too often, the world tells parents to be content with mediocrity instead of the prospect of raising respectful and responsible children with strong character. In a lively question-and-answer format, Dr. Ray unpacks issues ranging from sibling relationships and peer pressure to curfews and chores to overcoming backtalk and teaching your kids to avoid drugs.”

Dr. Ray Guarendi is the father of 10, a clinical psychologist, author, public speaker, “Everybody Loves Raymond” binge-watcher, whistling enthusiast, and nationally syndicated radio host. His radio show― “The Doctor Is In” ― can be heard weekdays. Dr. Ray also hosts his own EWTN television show, “Living Right With Dr. Ray.” His experience includes school districts, Head Start programs, mental health centers, substance abuse programs, inpatient psychiatric centers, juvenile courts, and a private practice.
