If you are headed in the wrong direction as a parent - you are allowed to make a U-turn.

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

Don't wait for him to turn 10 before you reveal that you are not in fact the hired help whose job it is to clean up after him.

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

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

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

If there is no relationship - nothing else matters !

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

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

"To be a man, a boy must see a man."  (J.R. Moehringer)

Are ADHD Medications Effective?

 

 

The first line stimulant medications for ADHD are among the most effective treatments in all medicine. Good peer reviewed, independent studies show that they are effective with approximately 80% of individuals with ADHD.

Positive Effects

  • decreased motor activity
  • decreased aggression
  • decreased defiance
  • less impulsive
  • fewer mistakes
  • grades improve
  • more compliant
  • improved relationships
  • improved concentration
  • improved attitude

Dr. Martin Boren (M.D.), a noted American pediatrician  says “If a child has an attention or hyperactive disorder, then he has a chemical problem and needs a stimulant medication as much as a diabetic needs insulin”.

Not all doctors agree with this statement  making a parents decision difficult !
