Dr Andrew Mullins presented an excellent talk at the recent National Association of Catholic Families Conference in Albury, Australia.
It really was a good thing to hear.
I strongly recommend you get onto this with your children. It really is the opposite to parenting like a bush turkey.
The basic message for me: get your own c**p sorted so you can truly be a witness to Christ to your children. Get your own face right first.
You cannot expect more from your children than you expect from yourself.
Please print off this excellent summary of his talk and make it your mantra : Creating joyful homes
