"Unexpressed feeling never die. They are buried alive and come back later in ugly ways." (Stephen Covey)

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

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

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

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.

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

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

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

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

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

Healing a Teen’s/Child’s Grieving Heart

Quite naturally we grieve over the loss of anything important. If the loss is great, the very foundations of life are shaken and we can be thrown into deep despair. Life can be cruel for children also. When children suffer the loss of a precious relationship, grieving results (death, divorce, uprooting, foster placement, foster home breakdown, etc.) and it is an especially painful experience. This workshop explores practical ways for a caregiver to help a young person heal a grieving heart. (2 hours)
