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

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

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

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

Good parenting requires sacrifice. Childhood lasts for only a few brief years , but it should be given priority while it is passing before your eyes

Setting limits teaches your children valuable skills they will use the rest of their lives. One day, they will report to a job where their ability to follow rules will dictate their success.

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

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

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

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

FAQ re: ADHD (#1)

 

 


Is it true boys have ADD/ADHD more often than girls?

The short answer is “yes” – 3 to 6 times more boys.

The longer answer – girls may be under diagnosed because they typically display less severe social problems. Boys are more risk of developing almost any childhood behavioural or emotional problems except depression and eating disorders.
