The teenage years require a delicate balance between the young person's need to gain independence, and the parent's need to retain authority.

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)

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

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

"Rules without relationship leads to rebellion" (Josh McDowell)

If there is no relationship - nothing else matters !

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

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.
