Criticism is not a motivator.

If there is no relationship - nothing else matters !

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

Children mimic well. They catch what they see better than they follow what they hear.

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

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

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

Simple rules adhered to when children are young can prevent more serious problems later.

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

Parenting style matters - a lot!

How Would You Feel IF:

 

 

How would you feel if your whole life people:

  • kept yelling at you
  • accused you of being lazy
  • said you weren’t trying hard enough
  • said you don’t apply yourself
  • said you are irresponsible

You would probably feel:

  • angry
  • discouraged
  • usesless
  • worthless
  • hopeless

And those kinds of persistent feelings do not take someone to a good place.
