The more 2 parents differ in their approaches to discipline, the more likely it leads to trouble for the child.

If there is no relationship - nothing else matters !

Adolescence can be the cruelest place on earth. It can really be heartless.  ( Tori Amos)

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

“We are foster parents who took in a 13 year old girl (going on 18!) and she ran us through the wringer. Rick helped us learn how to set limits that made the difference.”

(G.E. – Strathroy)
