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

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

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

Criticism is not a motivator.

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

The teenage years require a delicate balance between the young person's need to gain independence, and the parent's need to retain authority.

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

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

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

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

Workshop – “It’s a Guy Thing, It’s a Girl Thing”

I will be presenting a workshop entitled “It’s a Guy Thing, It’s a Girl Thing” at the Woodstock campus of Fanshawe College on May 16 from 6:30 to 9:30 PM. Enclosed is a description: “Be prepared for an “aha” experience. Are boys different from girls? Do they think, play, learn, hear, talk differently? Finally modern science can now explain the many gender differences that influence every aspect of our lives. Understanding these differences will help parents in raising their sons and daughters and explain to couples why their spouse thinks, talks and acts the way he/she does. This workshop is a good one to attend with your partner”.

Information regarding price and registration can be obtained by calling the Fanshawe office at (519) 421-0144, checking the Fanshawe website or viewing the Fanshawe spring calendar.

Parents' Comments

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