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

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

Setting limits teaches your children valuable skills they will use the rest of their lives. One day, they will report to a job where their ability to follow rules will dictate their success.

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.

Parenting style matters - a lot!

The teenage years require a delicate balance between the young person's need to gain independence, and the parent's need to retain authority.

"Rules without relationship leads to rebellion" (Josh McDowell)

Good parenting requires sacrifice. Childhood lasts for only a few brief years , but it should be given priority while it is passing before your eyes

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

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

Balancing Punishments and Reinforcement

 

 

 

 

If a child doesn’t know how to read:

– we teach.

If a child doesn’t know how to swim:

– we teach.

If a child doesn’t know how to multiply:

– we teach.

If a child doesn’t know how to behave:

– we punish.

There is something wrong with this picture!

Rick Harper of Behavioural Management Systems  has been helping parents find the right balance between “teaching” and “punishment” for over 40 years.

“Our psychiatrist recommended Rick to help us sort out behaviour management issues for our autistic son. He was an invaluable help.”
