Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Parents must not try to reason with kid

Q: Our 18-year-old daughter is a month away from high school graduation and she is failing nearly every class! About six months ago, she took up with a group of young adults who are less than desirable, to say the least. Some of them are dropouts. I suspect drugs and alcohol. The more we tried to prevent her from running with this lowly bunch, the more rebellious she became. Finally, in desperation, we took her car and her smart phone away and told her she can't have them back until she possesses a high school diploma. If she fails ...

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: ADHD still not proven biologically

I fully expected my recent column on ADHD - in which I expanded upon noted Harvard psychologist (emeritus) Jerome Kagan's contention that it is an "invention"-to stir the pot. Kagan said what I've been saying in this column and everywhere the opportunity has provided for more than 25 years.
