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

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

The teenage years require a delicate balance between the young person's need to gain independence, and the parent's need to retain authority.

"To be a man, a boy must see a man."  (J.R. Moehringer)

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

Whining and crying are employed by kids for the purpose of getting something. If it works, then it was worth the effort and will be repeated.

Wouldn't it be nice if children would simply listen and learn.

"The thing that impresses me most about North America is the way parents obey their children"    (King Edward VII , 1841-1910)

Children do not develop on their own - they only develop within relationships.

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.

“Implementing Rick’s techniques and adhering to them is exhausting, but it is a healthy exhaustion rather than the detrimental exhaustion I used to experience.”
