If there is no relationship - nothing else matters !

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

If you (parents) tend to overreact to your child's misbehaviour - your child learns that he can't trust you. Mom, Dad, stay regulated!

A tantruming toddler is a little ball of writhing muscle and incredible strength. It's like trying to carry a greased pig past a slop bucket.

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

You cannot reason with someone who is being unreasonable.

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

It is an understandable reaction for parents when a doctor prescribes  ADHD medications. There are so many questions and the doctor has so little time to answer them.

Is the medication safe?

How will we know if it is working?

Are there side effects?

Will my child feel like a zombie?

In the next few blogs, I will attempt to shed some light on these questions

Parents' Comments

“We were so naive. We thought our son’s poor behaviour was just a phase he was passing through. Thankfully you led us ‘out of the wilderness'”

(N.S. – London)
