METHAMPHETAMINE/”P” – THE REAL DEAL FOR OUR CHILDREN

We all love our children – we all want the best for them, but there are just sometimes when our wants and needs override what is best for our kids. Who would think that going out on the booze/around the town/having a joint…or a bit of “P” would have that much effect on our children? But let me ask, the more

ANXIETY IN CHILDREN – A GROWING EPIDEMIC

As a parent I was always fascinated when my kids were growing up, that my kids displayed two different types of personality. One was easy going and the other more a live wire.

FIX THE CHILD?… PERHAPS FIX THE PARENT INSTEAD

Often when a parent cries out for help to fix a problem about their child, it is not the child that needs fixing, it is the parent.

ENMESHED PARENTING – AND HOW IT AFFECTS YOUR CHILD

Our parenting style comes from a combination of how we were raised, what we have learned and our personality types. In my last missive I started part one of five articles I would write about parenting styles. Although generally speaking, parenting styles are recognised as falling into four categories (authoritarian, authoritative, permissive, neglectful)

WHERE TO BLAME THE PARENT AND HOW IT AFFECTS YOUR CHILD

When it comes to the four main parenting styles (authoritarian, authoritative, permissive and neglectful), in fairness, a portion of all can be attributable to the way we parent. However, it is when a predominance of one type of parenting style becomes apparent, then it becomesa lot more interesting. Sadly, alas I  was not endowed with much insight

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOUR CHILD GETS IN WITH THE WRONG CROWD

You can get quite frustrated when your kid starts radiating towards the wrong crowd. It can be quite an effort to stay ahead of the game and try to keep them from veering off on the wrong path. It can be scary to say in the same sentence the words “your son”. “irresponsible” and “easily led” because sometimes it might hit home. I knew I felt my son had more nous than
