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

Criticism is not a motivator.

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

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

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

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

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

Hurt people hurt people.

Parents' Comments

“Our daughter was the joy of our life until she turned 13, then all hell broke loose. Rick helped us understand what was happening to her and we made some adjustments that helped us get through it. She’s now in University and doing well.”

(D.A. – St. Thomas)
