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.

You cannot reason with someone who is being unreasonable.

Adolescence can be the cruelest place on earth. It can really be heartless.  ( Tori Amos)

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

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

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.

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

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

When a child is disregulated - is the time parents need to be regulated.

Parenting Workshop

 

 

I am frequently invited to speak to parents at school, conferences, children’s aid societies, church groups etc. and share ideas about parenting. My workshop entitled “A Parent’s Guide to the Teenage Brain” is a 3 hour training that outlines cutting edge research that explains what’s happening in a teenager’s head – and it is good news.

The cost of this workshop is $200 + cost of handouts + travel.

Phone (519) 485-4678 or e-mail me at : info@rickharper.ca for details.
