When a child is disregulated - is the time parents need to be regulated.

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

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

Some hope their children will be like sponges soaking up the truth and wisdom imparted by their parents. However appealing this philosophy might be, it seldom seems to catch on with their children.

Parents are the external regulator for kids who cannot regulate themselves.

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

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

It's more effective to reward your child for being "good" (appropriate) than to punish him for being "bad" (inappropriate).

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

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

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.
