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

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

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

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

It's more effective to reward your child for being "good" (appropriate) than to punish him for being "bad" (inappropriate).

Criticism is not a motivator.

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

"Moody" and "unpredictable" are adjectives parents will often use when referring to their teenagers.

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

If there is no relationship - nothing else matters !

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.

Parents' Comments

“Implementing Rick’s techniques and adhering to them is exhausting, but it is a healthy exhaustion rather than the detrimental exhaustion I used to experience.”
