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

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

The more 2 parents differ in their approaches to discipline, the more likely it leads to trouble for the child.

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

Prevalence of ADD / ADHD

 

 

Various experts give different rates of prevalence but most say between 5 – 10 % of North American children have one or the other – that’s a lot. It means that there are probably 2 or 3 children in most classrooms that have one of these disorders – and school can be a very unfriendly place for a child with ADD / ADHD.

The researchers tell us that about 70% of these children will carry at least some of their symptoms into adulthood:

– some of those adults are doing well

– some are doing OK

– some are doing poorly
