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

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

"Unexpressed feeling never die. They are buried alive and come back later in ugly ways." (Stephen Covey)

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

We should not medicate the boys so they fit the school; we should change the school to fit the boy. (Leonard Sax, M.D. Ph.D)

Children fare better when expectations on them are clear and firm.

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.

The way we talk to our children becomes their inner voice. (Peggy O'Mara)

Child & Youth Worker – Fanshawe College

I am looking forward to the upcoming semester starting January 7  as Fanshawe College (Woodstock campus) begins  its CWY program for 2013. I am privileged to teach the course “Fundamentals of Human Learning” to the first year students. This program is a 3 year diploma program that prepares students to work with young people in schools, group homes, detention centres and day care centres. Three semesters are devoted to academic work at the college and three semesters are on field placement in the community.
