Practical advice for raising children, from an Eastern Orthodox Christian perspective. Saint Theophan, while from a different era and country, has an uncanny ability to communicate with modern Westerners. Raising Them Right provides both practical and spiritual insight into a variety of important areas, such as baptism, the spiritual and psychological development of children through their teens, and preserving God's grace in a child's life. "What good fortune therefore it is to receive a good, truly Christian upbringing, to enter with it into the years of youth, then in the same spirit to enter into the years of adulthood." -Saint Theophan Find practical advice for reaching these goals for your children in RAISING THEM RIGHT.

Raising Them Wrong  Jul 20, 2005
Very few parents will be able to read this book without misunderstanding and misapplying his esoteric musings. The genuine Christian alternative is Sister Magdalene's "Conversations with Children" [...]
Raising Them Right: A Saints Advice on Raising Children  Apr 15, 2004
Intially I bought this book thinking - "What does a recluse know about raising children?" What I found out was - quite a bit!!!
How many of us want our children attaining salvation - hopefully all of us. St. Theophan takes you through infancy of your child(ren) to Young Adult and explains the impact the Church, parents, and those around the child will have on their spiritual lives. He gives some very practical advice as well: "One doctor from his own observation, testifies that for the most part when there are illnesses in children the children should be taken to Holy Communion, and very rarely does he have need to use later any kind of medical help. A great influence is exercised on the child by frequently taking him to Church, by having him kiss the holy Cross, the Gospel, the icons....Likewise, at home frequently placing him under icons, frequently signing him with the sign of the Cross, sprinkling him with holy water...." He addresses every stage of a child's development including the teenage years - "One must have a strong foundation so as to stand firm at this time against the shock-waves of youth." He not only addresses the craziness of the teenage years but he also gives practical advice of how to deal with your teenagers. I only stated a few of the spiritual examples. There's also an abundance of day to day advice. There is so much I would love to quote but cannot because of space. St. Theophan's love for children shines throughout this book. "Of all holy works, the education of children in the most holy." - St. Theophan the Recluse
Child-rearing from the Gulag  Apr 28, 2003
As an Orthodox Christian and father, I can say that this is the worst child-rearing book I've read--and one of the worst books I've read, period. The author's view of the normal activities and affections of children is so dark that it makes the Puritans look like rosy sentimentalists. I came away from the book without learning a single bit of practical advice to help me better love my children.
Most Used Book in Parish Library  Aug 2, 1999
This book has a lot of useful advice and is very contemporary! Don't be fooled by the word "Recluse". He retired and continued to write. He really knows his stuff!!
