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

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

Children today are under enormous pressures rarely experienced by their parents or grandparents. Many of today's children are being enticed to grow up too quickly and are encountering challenges for which they are totally unprepared.

If there is no relationship - nothing else matters !

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

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

Good parenting requires sacrifice. Childhood lasts for only a few brief years , but it should be given priority while it is passing before your eyes

Relationships matter:  change comes through forming trusting relationships. People, not programs change people.

Setting limits teaches your children valuable skills they will use the rest of their lives. One day, they will report to a job where their ability to follow rules will dictate their success.

Criticism is not a motivator.

How Can Behavioural Management Systems Help?

There is an overwhelming array of theories, books, courses, seminars, and videos designed to assist parents. Unfortunately this help is frequently confusing and often contradictory. Behavioural Management Systems helps parents figure out practical ways of solving behaviour problems.

Your knowledge of your child and family, combined with Rick’s experience can lead to solutions to your behaviour concerns.

Parents may not feel like experts but nobody knows their child better than them and nobody knows their own strengths and weaknesses better than them and nobody is in a better position to decide what’s best for their child!

What kinds of behaviour problems:

  • noncompliance
  • aggression
  • self-injurious behaviour
  • running away
  • bedtime/mealtime problems
  • school issues / homework
  • substance abuse
  • whining
  • temper tantrums
  • disrespect
  • swearing
  • messy rooms
  • sibling / peer problems
  • more

What parents need most are ideas because with ideas we get options.

Rick Harper has been providing ideas to parents and teachers for over 40 years.

Parents' Comments

“We are foster parents who took in a 13 year old girl (going on 18!) and she ran us through the wringer. Rick helped us learn how to set limits that made the difference.”
