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.

Children fare better when expectations on them are clear and firm.

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

The challenge of adolescence is to balance the right of the parents to feel they are in charge with the need of the adolescent to gain independence.

If there is no relationship - nothing else matters !

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

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.

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

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

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

Sex Change

“Our universities have undergone a sex change !”

I recently attended a conference presented by Dr. Leonard Sax (M.D., Ph.D.) who shared the following data from Statistics Canada:

1971 – 68% of Canadian university graduates were male

1981 – 54% were male

1991 – 51% were male

2001 – 42% were male

2006 – 40% were male

This data clearly indicates that a growing proportion of males are “disengaging” from school. More and more of them believe school is a bore, a waste of time, a tedium they endure each day”

Houston , we have a problem!
