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

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

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

If you are headed in the wrong direction as a parent - you are allowed to make a U-turn.

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

"Parents aren't the cause of ADHD, but they are part of the solution." (Kenny Handleman, M.D.)

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

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

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

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

Upcoming Workshop – “A Parent’s Guide to the Teenage Brain”

 

 

 

 

I will be presenting a 3 hour workshop entitled “A Parent’s Guide to the Teenage Brain” at the Woodstock campus of Fanshawe College on Oct 21, 2013 (6:30-9:30)

“A teenager’s brain is not just an adult brain with fewer kilometres on it. It is a brain that has not fully developed. It is a work in progress and has confused parents for  centuries. Modern science is now explaining biological reasons :

  • why teens can seem so mature one minute and so maddening the next
  •  why some struggle and some bloom
  •  why some engage in risky behaviour
  •  why they can’t get out of bed before noon on Saturday
  •  why some slam doors

Science is tiptoeing on the edge of understanding the teenage brain and the science is changing fast. Understanding the teen brain can lead to smoother relationships between parents and their kids.
