The challenge of adolescence is to balance the right of the parents to feel they are in charge with the need of the adolescent to gain independence.

If it  was going to be easy to raise kids, it never would have started with something called "labour".

Early intervention is always better than crisis management - but it is never too late to do the right thing.

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

"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.

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

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.

Being a parent of a teenager can cure a person of narcissism.

The quickest way to change your child’s behaviour is to first change your own.

Dry Bed Training

Can “bed wetting” contribute to emotional problems? Research clearly says “yes”! Nocturnal enuresis is a common complaint that not only affects a child’s self esteem (helplessness, hopelessness, shame, guilt, ridicule,etc) but is also an unpleasant nuisance and inconvenience for the whole family (laundry, odour, vacation complications, expense, etc.) This workshop explores the latest research into the causes, effects and treatments and will provide you with concrete, practical ideas on how to help your child overcome bed wetting.

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