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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

Simple rules adhered to when children are young can prevent more serious problems later.

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

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

Living With an Attachment Disordered Child

A child with attachment disorder is a deeply wounded child who was denied the very basics of life, love and protection in the early years. They have often been victims of abuse, neglect, abandonment and sexual exploitation. Though they can be removed from the source of their maltreatment, they take with them the invisible internal scars of earlier maltreatment into their “new” families. This workshop explores what has gone wrong in their development and outlines a hopeful course of treatment. Especially suitable for foster/adoption parents and teachers. (3 hours)
