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

Many clinicians find it easier to tell parents their child has a brain-based disorder than suggest parenting changes. Jennifer Harris (psychiatrist)

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

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

If there is no relationship - nothing else matters !

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

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

Criticism is not a motivator.

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

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

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