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

"Rules without relationship leads to rebellion" (Josh McDowell)

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

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

If there is no relationship - nothing else matters !

Hurt people hurt people.

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

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.

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

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.

Recommendations for schools regarding children with ADD/ADHD

  1. Whenever possible, special needs children will do better within regular classrooms
  2. Putting more adults in a classroom (ie. EA’s, volunteers, etc.) is good for all children, but especially those who need more immediate feedback and attention.
  3. Traditionally arranged classroom furniture can provide more structure than the “open” concept.
  4. Establish, destigmatize and encourage the use of quiet spaces in the classroom
  5. Standards must be tailored to individual children’s capabilities
  6. ADHD/ADD children generally do better with a “single teacher” routine rather than “rotary”
