Parents are reinventing poor Behavior Disorders like oppositional defiant disorder, ADHD & even the poor behavior associated with Asperger’s syndrome.

Discover critical information that these parents would love to know!!! Become a “smart-ER” parent who can avoid power struggles, temper tantrums, and teenage rebellion.

I was a single mom raising four children. I followed all of the traditional discipline methods known today as positive discipline. What I have discovered, after intensive research is that time-outs, yelling, removing privileges, grounding, saying “no,” avoiding the situation, and other methods of punishment are all negative energy! You can never create positive circumstances with negative energy. Three out of four of my children had been diagnosed with ADD, ADHD, and oppositional defiant disorder.

I promised that I would do things differently than my parents did. My entire childhood and youth I was yelled at, punished and grounded. I felt like I was useless to society until I discovered at the age of 22 that even I could create something great in my life.

I made it my mission to help other people discover their greatness, but I was raising kids who weren’t. Through training, conditioning and habits, I was repeating my own parent’s mistakes and was creating worse behavior in my children than I had shown to my mom! That’s scary!!! But, at least I have grit, work ethic, and survivor instincts. My children were not developing those characteristics until I began to master the Creating Champions for Life methods.

Discover great missing truths when it comes to parenting, and turn Oppositional Defiant Disorder into leadership, cooperation and gratitude. Parents are reaching their highest potential by learning and implementing the art of Guiding Behavior vs. Punishment.

Why Jim West specializes in Defiance! 66% of people with Oppositional Defiance have ADHD undiagnosed or unsuccessfully treated. The reason I want to help you is because my father had ADHD and became a millionaire and then lost it all after 4 marriages and ended up living with his mother before he passed away! My brother also had ADHD and my mother rode him all the way through elementary, middle and high school as well as college to get a 4 year degree!! He is now a great husband, father and leader and is making a difference in the lives of teenagers. I want you to avoid the mess my father had to go through and I want to share how my brother turned out to be a good organized leader. Let me help you and your child or teen!
