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

Whining and crying are employed by kids for the purpose of getting something. If it works, then it was worth the effort and will be repeated.

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

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

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

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

Children today are under enormous pressures rarely experienced by their parents or grandparents. Many of today's children are being enticed to grow up too quickly and are encountering challenges for which they are totally unprepared.

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

You cannot reason with someone who is being unreasonable.

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

Hypnosis (an alternative treatment for bedwetting)

 

Hypnosis (an alternative treatment for bedwetting)
Another treatment option that may be worthy of consideration is hypnosis. This treatment is relatively inexpensive, less time consuming or complicated than some and virtually no medical side effects to worry about. Recent medical studies show that hypnotherapy can work quite quickly (4-6 sessions). It gives children the power to treat themselves, however the child must be motivated and be willing to assume responsibility for making a change. Hypnotherapy is quite common therapy for a number of conditions and once you start asking around there are quite a few well trained doctors and psychologists offering this service. Your pediatrician or family doctor would be a good place to start looking for advice regarding hypnosis.
