PHILOSOPHY & PRACTICE
____________________________________

I am eclectic in my approach;
one size does not fit all.

Children do not exist in isolation;
 they are part of a family, school 
and community.

It is difficult to parent a “typical” child;
 it is harder with a child with special needs.

We don’t make mistakes on purpose.
We are doing the best we can.

Being “fair” does not mean
children are all treated the same;

Being “fair” means each 
child receives what he/she needs.


Use of rewards & punishment 
is not always successful 
in changing behavior, 

especially when:

           - Parents and/or teachers                      do not fully understand 
             how to implement a                              system of consequences;

           - Parents and/or teachers
             are not consistent in 
             applying consequences;

and/or because 

           - Use of consequences is
             simply not effective for 
             some children. 



Response to misbehavior should be based on whether or not a child has the skills to behave and simply chooses not to ... or whether the skills 
need to be taught, practiced and mastered.

Although neuro-psychiatric issues may complicate matters …

teaching children social skills, decision making and collaborative problem solving, 
and then holding them accountable for the choices they make, is our best 
“insurance” for a new generation of responsible citizens …

especially when implemented within an environment that fosters self-esteem.
