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

If there is no relationship - nothing else matters !

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

Parenting style matters - a lot!

Adolescence can be the cruelest place on earth. It can really be heartless.  ( Tori Amos)

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

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

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

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

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

Foster / Adoption Parent Training

 

 

 

 

 

I wish to thank Carrie Davidson of the Brant County CAS for inviting me to share ideas with your foster/adoption parents on March 27. The topic was “Fostering – Take This Job and Shove Love it”. We looked at a unique perspective on handling the stress in our everyday lives and the added stress of taking children into our homes. Foster / adoption parents are incredible people ?
