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

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

"Unexpressed feeling never die. They are buried alive and come back later in ugly ways." (Stephen Covey)

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

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

Parents are the external regulator for kids who cannot regulate themselves.

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

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

Removing a child from a traumatic environment does not remove the trauma from the child's memory.

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

The Golden rules of Temper Tantrums

  1. Tantrums are a normal part of a child’s development.
  2. Always remember the boy Scouts motto: Be Prepared.
  3. Never look around at the faces of those people watching you when your child is having a tantrum in public.
  4. The more involved you are with your child’s tantrum, the longer it will last.
  5. Remember to catch him being good as often as you can.
  6. Understand that all children want their parents’ love and attention.
  7. Move on and forget about the tantrum once it is over.

Parents' Comments

“Our psychiatrist recommended Rick to help us sort out behaviour management issues for our autistic son. He was an invaluable help.”
