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

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

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

When a child is disregulated - is the time parents need to be regulated.

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.

There has been an explosion in the prescribing of medication for very young children, particularly preschool and kindergarten boys (Juli Zito , Univ. of Maryland)

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

A tantruming toddler is a little ball of writhing muscle and incredible strength. It's like trying to carry a greased pig past a slop bucket.

Columbine High School

COLUMBINE HIGH SCHOOL 1999
– the two perpetrators (both committed suicide)
                                    – one was being treated for psychiatric disorder
                                    – both in trouble with the law
                                    – both were socially isolated “losers”
                                    – both had been bullied
                                    – both enduring pain
This was a big story in 1999 but it is not the biggest story – most teens suffer alone, invisibly and their eventual suicides never make to TV news
 
THE ISSUE SHOULD BE – CAN WE PREVENT OTHER “TICKING TIME BOMBS”
 
A typical high school of 1000 students
                  – 180 have thoughts of suicide
                  – 50 make an attempt

Parents' Comments

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

(C.C. – Sarnia)
