Early intervention is always better than crisis management - but it is never too late to do the right thing.

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

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

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

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

Children today are under enormous pressures rarely experienced by their parents or grandparents. Many of today's children are being enticed to grow up too quickly and are encountering challenges for which they are totally unprepared.

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

Criticism is not a motivator.

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

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.

Rising Rates of Diagnosis

 

 

ADD / ADHD is the most common neurobehavioral disorder of childhood. The number of children in North America diagnosed with this disorder has skyrocketed in the last 30 years (skyrocketing means in the thousands of %).

The number of adults being diagnosed has increased dramatically also. The rise in some parts of the world has not been nearly as alarming as in North America which begs the question – why is that ?

Answering this question has been the subject of innumerable studies and debates but to date no one has been able to give a definitive answer.
