Wouldn't it be nice if children would simply listen and learn.

Children mimic well. They catch what they see better than they follow what they hear.

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

If it  was going to be easy to raise kids, it never would have started with something called "labour".

"Unexpressed feeling never die. They are buried alive and come back later in ugly ways." (Stephen Covey)

If there is no relationship - nothing else matters !

When a child is disregulated - is the time parents need to be regulated.

Removing a child from a traumatic environment does not remove the trauma from the child's memory.

"Cutting" is a visible sign to the world that you are hurting.

Early intervention is always better than crisis management - but it is never too late to do the right thing.

A Caution about Concerta


 

There is a generic form of Concerta available that is proving to be not as effective or safe as the brand named product. The long acting release mechanism is different making it shorter acting and the generic form can be crushed into a powder and snorted like cocaine whereas the brand named form cannot be crushed.

Some pharmacies and insurance companies have switched from the brand name med to the generic form without informing parents.

I advise parents to check with their doctor and if needed the doctor will write “no substitutes” on the prescription form.

The pills on the left side of the photo are the brand name pills and you can see the shape is slightly different and the writing on each pill is different.
