We should not medicate the boys so they fit the school; we should change the school to fit the boy. (Leonard Sax, M.D. Ph.D)

If you are headed in the wrong direction as a parent - you are allowed to make a U-turn.

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

Relationships matter:  change comes through forming trusting relationships. People, not programs change people.

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.

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

Hurt people hurt people.

It is what we say and do when we're angry that creates the very model our children will follow when dealing with their own frustrations.

Don't wait for him to turn 10 before you reveal that you are not in fact the hired help whose job it is to clean up after him.

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

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.

Parents' Comments

“Our daughter was the joy of our life until she turned 13, then all hell broke loose. Rick helped us understand what was happening to her and we made some adjustments that helped us get through it. She’s now in University and doing well.”

(D.A. – St. Thomas)
