Relationships matter:  change comes through forming trusting relationships. People, not programs change people.

The more 2 parents differ in their approaches to discipline, the more likely it leads to trouble for the child.

"Rules without relationship leads to rebellion" (Josh McDowell)

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

Don't wait for him to turn 10 before you reveal that you are not in fact the hired help whose job it is to clean up after him.

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)

If there is no relationship - nothing else matters !

Tantrums by older children can be very unpleasant and all of the behaviours can be expected. Because of the child’s increasing size and strength, there may be a danger to themselves, others and property. It is wise to get specific and professional help to deal with problems of this magnitude.
