If you (parents) tend to overreact to your child's misbehaviour - your child learns that he can't trust you. Mom, Dad, stay regulated!

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

Whining and crying are employed by kids for the purpose of getting something. If it works, then it was worth the effort and will be repeated.

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

Hurt people hurt people.

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

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

The challenge of adolescence is to balance the right of the parents to feel they are in charge with the need of the adolescent to gain independence.

Relationships matter:  change comes through forming trusting relationships. People, not programs change people.

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

Child Development



Baby Teeth

By the age of 6 or 7, the first adult teeth begin to replace baby teeth. They come in at the back of the mouth, behind the last baby teeth. They do not replace any primary (baby) teeth. The roots of some of the primary teeth become weak at about 6 years old and the tooth falls out. Children lose baby teeth until they are about 12 years old.

It’s OK for children to wiggle their baby teeth if they are loose, but it’s not OK to use force to pull out a tooth that’s not ready to come out. When a tooth comes out at the right time, there will be  very little bleeding.

Definition of Dilemma – noun

1. the moment at midnight when the “tooth fairy” realizes she only has a $20 bill in her wallet.
