Excellent question. I’m in the process of converting, myself, and am interested in others opinions of this sort of thing. My beliefs are only deepening the gulf between my (divorced, secularist) parents and myself. Neither agree with Catholicism and neither like my way of life (i.e. married with a degree but no career and more than one child). I don’t wish to dishonor them, however, I feel that they are wrong on some important life points. Especially, where children are concerned. My mother in particular has verbally abused my children and belittled both myself and my husband. We don’t respond and try to over look…but the temptation exists to tell her “where to head in” if you know what I mean.
Very curious about what one does in this situation.
