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

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

The challenge of adolescence is to balance the right of the parents to feel they are in charge with the need of the adolescent to gain independence.

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

Many clinicians find it easier to tell parents their child has a brain-based disorder than suggest parenting changes. Jennifer Harris (psychiatrist)

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

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.

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

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

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

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.
