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

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

"Moody" and "unpredictable" are adjectives parents will often use when referring to their teenagers.

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

Simple rules adhered to when children are young can prevent more serious problems later.

We should not medicate the boys so they fit the school; we should change the school to fit the boy. (Leonard Sax, M.D. Ph.D)

There has been an explosion in the prescribing of medication for very young children, particularly preschool and kindergarten boys (Juli Zito , Univ. of Maryland)

Some hope their children will be like sponges soaking up the truth and wisdom imparted by their parents. However appealing this philosophy might be, it seldom seems to catch on with their children.

The quickest way to change your child’s behaviour is to first change your own.

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

The “Difficult” Child

  • Do you find your child difficult to raise?
    Yes or No
  • Do you find your child’s behaviour hard to understand?
    Yes or No
  • Are you often battling with your child?
    Yes or No
  • Do you sometimes feel inadequate or guilty as a parent?
    Yes or No
  • Is your marriage being affected by your child’s behaviour?
    Yes or No

“Yes” to any of the above questions may indicate you are dealing with a “difficult” child. Temperamentally difficult children confuse and upset even experienced parents and teachers. They often act in ways that are defiant, stubborn, loud, aggressive, whiny, hyperactive, clingy, shy, negative, picky and sometimes are impossible to deal with. This workshop offers practical, compassionate advice to parents of hard-to-raise children.
