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

You cannot reason with someone who is being unreasonable.

If it  was going to be easy to raise kids, it never would have started with something called "labour".

If there is no relationship - nothing else matters !

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.

Good parenting requires sacrifice. Childhood lasts for only a few brief years , but it should be given priority while it is passing before your eyes

Parenting style matters - a lot!

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

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

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

Parents' Comments

“Our psychiatrist recommended Rick to help us sort out behaviour management issues for our autistic son. He was an invaluable help.”
