Compassion, Please

One parent keeps a healthy perspective amidst discipline challenges.

"On those really tough days, when you feel like pulling out your hair, remember that your child didn't ask to have ADD. A little empathy and a lot of love go a long way toward working things out."

- Jane J., mother of nine-year-old Tess
