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

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

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

Don't wait for him to turn 10 before you reveal that you are not in fact the hired help whose job it is to clean up after him.

Criticism is not a motivator.

Some hope their children will be like sponges soaking up the truth and wisdom imparted by their parents. However appealing this philosophy might be, it seldom seems to catch on with their children.

If there is no relationship - nothing else matters !

"Moody" and "unpredictable" are adjectives parents will often use when referring to their teenagers.

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

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

“Doc, I want you to evaluate my 13 year old son”

 

 

Parent: “Doc, I want you to evaluate my 13 year old son.”

Doc: “OK, he’s suffering from a transient psychosis with an intermettent rage disorder, punctuated by episodic radical mood swings, but his prognosis is good for a full recovery.”

Parent: “What does all that mean?”

Doc: “He’s 13.”

Parent: “How can you tell all that without even meeting him?”

Doc: “He’s 13.”
