Simple rules adhered to when children are young can prevent more serious problems later.

The best inheritance  parents can give their children is a few minutes of their time each day.

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

The way we talk to our children becomes their inner voice. (Peggy O'Mara)

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

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

Parents are the external regulator for kids who cannot regulate themselves.

Criticism is not a motivator.

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

"The thing that impresses me most about North America is the way parents obey their children"    (King Edward VII , 1841-1910)

ADD/ADHD – The Classic Triad

1. Inattention

2. Impulsive

3. Hyperactivity

ADD/ADHD children often manifest so much more than the classic triad. They frequently exhibit:

  • poor self control
  • over responsiveness
  • easily frustrated
  • poor self talk
  • trouble shifting gears
  • poor recall of past
  • poor future planning

These behaviours stem from an inability to INHIBIT their desires. They are so caught up in the “now” that the “future” is not considered. There is no “future” or “past” – only the “NOW”
