Mistakes parents make in raising their children

How to avoid them. Or, how to lessen their impact, if made

One unfortunate result of Freudianism is that some Catholics have overreacted to the “blame-the-parents” attitude it fostered. But the idea that parents can blight the lives of their children didn’t begin with Freud — it began with God, who warned Moses: “I am the Lord thy God, mighty, jealous, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, unto the third and fourth generations.” Those sobering words provide the keynote for Fr. Charles Hugo Doyle’s arresting guide to Catholic parenting, now back in print after half a century.

As Fr. Doyle explains, “The treatment extends not only to sins of fathers and mothers taken in their strict sense of serious transgressions against the law of God but extends also to the venial and even inculpable faults that can so adversely affect the lives of children.”
