Simple rules adhered to when children are young can prevent more serious problems later.

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

"Parents aren't the cause of ADHD, but they are part of the solution." (Kenny Handleman, M.D.)

The best inheritance  parents can give their children is a few minutes of their time each day.

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

"Cutting" is a visible sign to the world that you are hurting.

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

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

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

Behaviour Management in the Classroom

“I go home from school every night exhausted from the constant power struggles!”

“10% of the students in my class cause 90% of the behaviour problems!”

“Managing the children in my class takes as much time and energy as teaching them!”

“Teaching isn’t fun anymore. I don’t know how much longer I can keep doing this!”

This workshop presents proven strategies that replace “misbehaviour” in the classroom with “cooperation” without the need for lecturing, threatening, reasoning, cajoling, yelling, sending them to the office, etc. (3 hours)

Parents' Comments

“Our daughter was the joy of our life until she turned 13, then all hell broke loose. Rick helped us understand what was happening to her and we made some adjustments that helped us get through it. She’s now in University and doing well.”

(D.A. – St. Thomas)
