Topic - The Dangers Of Adhd That No One Talks About Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder is much more dangerous than you know. Kids and adults with ADHD have more emergency room visits, multiple jobs and relationships of short duration. Their “conflict driven behavior” gets them into trouble with authority figures. They have financial problems and lack a support group because they can’t offer reciprocity. They can’t take care of themselves much less help friends. Those with ADHD are...

Topic - We Need Help With Food Many kids who’ve been diagnosed with disorders and disabilities have limited diets and digestive problems. I wish that some of our prominent chefs would put their collective talents together and give us ideas to address these needs. For example, kids on the spectrum with inadequate jaw strength still require huge amounts of calories every day to grow. They need high-protein meals that aren’t complicated to prepare and involve a few key ingredients like...

Topic - Lessons From The Witness Stand I’ve spent many hours on the witness stand testifying in trials. Here’s what I’ve learned about communicating with integrity. Make sure you understand the question and take your time answering it. Make sure that you and others are talking about the same thing. If your child asks you where he came from and you launch into the birds and the bees and he finally says, “Jimmy’s from Boston and I wanted to know where I came from”, it’s an oops! Be aware of...

Topic - The Things I Tell My College-Bound Students I’ve tested a number of college-bound kids so they can have classroom accommodations. I tell them things they’re not likely to hear from others. Here’s the list: Develop a healthy suspicion and mistrust of everyone. Make them earn trust; don’t loan anything of value to anyone ever; lock up your stuff always; don’t let anyone mistreat you even a little bit. Allowing someone to mistreat you gives some people permission to treat you worse...

Topic - Dads and Daughters Typically, fathers are a girl’s first experience with men. Dad will shape the decisions she’ll make and how competent she becomes. But, a lot of dads are afraid and confused. They’ve got no idea how to raise a girl. Dads can be overwhelmed by all those emotions. Learning which ones to respond to and which to ignore is tricky. How can dads engage their daughters? By doing things together. Teaching her how to be competent is a start. Maybe you can teach her how to...

Topic - Naming the Baby Close to having that brand new baby? Has everyone in the family started giving you ideas for naming your little bundle of joy? What, like you haven’t thought of this before now and it’s a big surprise that you need to decide on a name? Long ago, I stopped asking “why” people do the things they do. Listen up. Just because they’re family, they may think they have a right to help you name your baby. They don’t. Your child will be living with that name for decades to...

Topic - ADHD versus Bipolar Wonder why your child’s treatment for Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder isn’t working? Are they very angry and aggressive? Are they sad and sometimes, intensely hyperactive? They may childhood-onset bipolar disorder or is it something else? It may be disruptive mood dysregulation disorder. These kids have rageful tantrums. They’re verbally and physically assaultive. They’re irritable and angry most of the day every day. What should you do? Get a complete...

Topic - Sleepovers - Yes or No? Do you let your child sleep over at a friend’s or go to slumber parties? Ask yourself these important questions. Do you know all of the people who will come into contact with your child? Do you know everything about them that’ll make you confident she’s safe around them? Do you know, exactly, what will be going on? Will he be engaging in vandalism? Will your kids learn about aspects of life they’re not ready to know about? Will someone terrorize them?...

Topic - With Them, Not To Or For Them We’re so involved in the “care and feeding” of our kids that we don’t stop to think about the “prepositions” of raising children. We begin by taking care of them and doing many things for them such as bathing, feeding and clothing. We take them to the doctor and dentist. As they start to develop their language skills, cognitive ability and awareness, it’s time to move away from the “to do” list. Focus time and energy being with them and having a...

Topic - Trial by Ordeal Recently, in the market, I saw a harried woman scrubbing her face with her hand as she spoke on her cell phone. She said, “I swear, my life is trial by ordeal”. I was shocked that I remembered this phrase from high school English. In the Middle Ages, the innocence or guilt of people suspected of crimes was determined in a trial by ordeal which was a painful, dangerous experience. The ordeals included trial by fire (sound familiar?), hot iron, hot water, boiling...

Topic - Kids, Sports And Education A whopping thirty-six million, two hundred fifty thousand school age kids participate in organized sports. Take into consideration the practices, the games, the homework, perhaps going to a tutor or other specialists if there are learning problems, how does all of this get done? It depends on their age. In elementary school, it’s a lot easier than middle or high school. The homework demands in middle school are intense. With six classes and homework for...

Topic - Developing Gender Identity How do kids figure out their gender role? They don’t. Their bodies do it for them. We know that gender role identification is a neurological phenomenon just like sexual preference. No one has control over it. To clarify, gender role identification is the person’s own sense of identifying as male or female which may actually be different from their biology. By age two to three, kids have established their gender role identity, identify themselves as boys or...

Topic - Anti-Bullying Programs Are A Crock Anti-bullying programs. What a crock! They’re only effective in deluding parents that “something” is being done. If the school administration is serious, every principal, counselor, and available adult, will be patrolling the halls, observing the interactions. Their mere presence reduces bullying. In my experience, principals say there’s nothing we can do about it, it’s a police matter. The police say it’s a school issue and the next thing you...

Topic - Joint Custody With A Jerk The divorce industry is a dangerous, nasty business. I read a book called Joint Custody with a Jerk several years ago to help one of my families. The book is even-handed, realistic, practical and covers many topics. It tells you ways to make changes in your life so the divorce devastation is minimized. I’ve been an expert witness in many custody cases. You want to steer clear of that cottage industry known as custody evaluations. No professional can...
