Kids and Boundaries

Leave a comment

More love and logic – well, it may be almost an hour of listening, but if you need it, it’s not long enough, otherwise you won’t listen anyway. Many parents find it hard to set boundaries, especially if they have children with special needs, children who may already struggle at school and feel frustrated. It may feel that all they need at home is a loving environment that makes allowances for them. Unfortunately the loving parent also needs to add the ‘logic’ part, in order to raise a child that will be able to fully participate in life and contribute, instead of sabotaging their life with a sense of entitlement. As Jim in the interview says, boundaries and limits are basic human needs.

I have worked for 14 years with Dyslexic and Asperger geniuses one-on-one, founded Sydney Dyslexia and Autism Sydney, worked in Mosman and at a beach retreat at the Entrance and wrote three books on Dyslexia ('the Right Brain for the Right Time', 'Nurturing the Secret Garden' and 'Learning your Times Tables in Three Bold Steps'). I believe these children and adults have a great gift and the ability to become leaders in their field. But I have also found that a proper diet as well as educating and working together with parents, friends and teachers matters even more. I am now working with small groups at the Entrance Beach Retreat, helping dyslexic adults fulfill their professional dreams and parents to help develop and nurture their child's potential.
