If there is no relationship - nothing else matters !

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

The way we talk to our children becomes their inner voice. (Peggy O'Mara)

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

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

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

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.

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.

Parents are the external regulator for kids who cannot regulate themselves.

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

Research on Teens

 

 

Reginald Bibby concludes from his research that I reported in my previous blog that:

1. The values deemed “most important” by adult Canadians are mirrored by a solid majority of young people.

2. Canadian teens tend to hold essentially the same views as canadian adkults about core values.

3. Teen outlook is remarkably similar to adults.

4. The idea that there is a wide generation gap between the majority of teens and their parents is a myth.
