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

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

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

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

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

Hurt people hurt people.

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

It is what we say and do when we're angry that creates the very model our children will follow when dealing with their own frustrations.

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

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

The CYW academic semester is winding down for another year. It is such a pleasure to share child development and  management ideas with so many young and enthusiastic minds. I wish all of them the very best as they continue their education. Next up in their training is a 4 month work placement in local schools, group homes, or agencies where they will have an opportunity to put the theory they have been learning into real life practice.

Best wishes to all.
