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

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.

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

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

The best inheritance  parents can give their children is a few minutes of their time each day.

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

If there is no relationship - nothing else matters !

If you (parents) tend to overreact to your child's misbehaviour - your child learns that he can't trust you. Mom, Dad, stay regulated!

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

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

Temper Tantrum (statistics)

  • 1 year old       =     14% have tantrums daily
  • 2-3 years old =     20% have tantrums daily
  • 4 years old     =     11% have tantrums daily
  • 5-6 years old =     5% have tantrums daily

Adults have tantrums, but we usually say they’re “making a scene”

Tantrums can occur at any time or place, but there are certain places where they are more likely or troublesome:

  • shopping
  • church
  • waiting rooms
  • restaurants
  • bedtime
  • transition times
  • when family is running late
  • the “NO” word
