A joyful family. A connected family. A faithful family. A happy family. Dr. Greg and Lisa Popcak show you how to achieve all of this and more in their new book Then Comes Baby: The Catholic Guide to Surviving and Thriving in the First Three Years of Parenthood.
Progressing month by month through baby’s first three years of life, Dr. Greg and Lisa provide invaluable information about laying a joyful Catholic family foundation, developmental milestones, the Sacrament of Baptism, discipline issues, mom care, dad’s role, and marriage care, all from a Theology of the Body perspective. The Popcaks even address the question, “When is it time for your next baby?”
Filled with stories and practical parenting tips, I found the Popcaks’ book to be engaging and incredibly helpful, even as I raise my fifth child. Dr. Greg’s intentional and compassionate parenting approach is supported by his extensive knowledge of the developing human brain, as well as years of experience as a Catholic counselor. The Popcaks meet today’s parents where they are by sharing attachment parenting techniques that can be adapted to a variety of circumstances and schedules.
Whether a first-time parent or a sixth-time parent, this is a book that will leave you feeling empowered to raise saints and, in the Popcaks’ words, to “continue your journey toward being the best Catholic family you can be.”
