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

The mistake that Sharon and I both made is we never set any boundaries.  (Ozzy Osbourne)

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

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.

Criticism is not a motivator.

Children do not develop on their own - they only develop within relationships.

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.

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

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

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

It’s A Guy Thing – It’s a Girl Thing

Be prepared for an “aha” experience! Are boys different than girls? Do they think, play, learn, hear, talk differently?

Understanding these differences will help parents in raising their sons and daughters and explain to married couples why their spouse thinks, talks and acts the way he/she does. This workshop is a good one to attend with your partner. (3 hours)
