Being a parent of a teenager can cure a person of narcissism.

You cannot reason with someone who is being unreasonable.

The quickest way to change your child’s behaviour is to first change your own.

"Parents aren't the cause of ADHD, but they are part of the solution." (Kenny Handleman, M.D.)

Children do not develop on their own - they only develop within relationships.

The mistake that Sharon and I both made is we never set any boundaries.  (Ozzy Osbourne)

Criticism is not a motivator.

Many clinicians find it easier to tell parents their child has a brain-based disorder than suggest parenting changes. Jennifer Harris (psychiatrist)

Setting limits teaches your children valuable skills they will use the rest of their lives. One day, they will report to a job where their ability to follow rules will dictate their success.

"Rules without relationship leads to rebellion" (Josh McDowell)

4-5-6 Magic

Thomas Phelan’s 1-2-3 Magic has been magic for many families with children in the 2 to 12 year age range. 4-5-6 Magic picks up where 1-2-3 ends and teaches parents new tricks on how to use the same proven principle with 13 to 18 year olds.

The younger the child-the more control the parent has!

The older the child – the more control the child has!

4-5-6 Magic helps parents steer their way through the minefield of adolescence.
