Things to think about on this Monday and everyday
Author: Allan Gonsher, LIMHP, LCSW, RPT-S
September 29th, 2014
Happy Monday everyone! Here are few things to think about at work today, this week and everyday from Allan Gonsher President of Kids-Inc. *Has social media dictated our form of communication with our clients. Is texting, emails, Facebook replacing talking to our clients? *When we are “stuck”, what do we do…..talk to our supervisor? Transfer case? Promote more solutions? Do we look at the theme and wonder if it has anything to …

Parenting
Author: Allan Gonsher, LIMHP, LCSW, RPT-S
April 11th, 2013
After being in the field for over 30 years, I know that every five years, a new “hot parenting technique” emerges.  Professionals need to recognize that an integral part of our work with children is parenting.  We need to be able to present it in an articulate, clear, efficient fashion.   Depending on your theoretical foundation, this attention to parenting should not compromise your individual work with the child …

Children and Play in the Midst of Gun Violence
Author: Allan Gonsher, LIMHP, LCSW, RPT-S
February 14th, 2013
An article entitled “Disciplining children over fake guns may be a wrong lesson” recently appeared on Yahoo.  It is an old theme.  After Columbine, the temperament and nature of the work I do changed dramatically.  Kids were suspended from school immediately if they “played aggressively.”  Parents were concerned their kids would be the next “killers.”  Children were discouraged from pr …

Post Christmas
Author: Allan Gonsher, LIMHP, LCSW, RPT-S
February 1st, 2013
I am absolutely outraged, overwhelmed, and saddened by the children that I saw after Christmas.  Why?  All the kids wanted to talk about was what they got for Christmas.  Few of them got something (on their own) for a parent or for a loved one.  Unless the parent arranged it, unless the school had a project, kids did not on their own, feel an obligation to give.  They felt an “obligation” to take.  Me, m …

Thoughts on the Tragedy at Sandy Hook
Author: Allan Gonsher, LIMHP, LCSW, RPT-S
January 19th, 2013
What has taken place over the last few weeks is a tragedy for the world.  We need to be able to teach our children that the world is safe, that relationships are good and that good triumphs over evil. We need to hug and hold our kids. All the talk about gun control and guns in school, or whether these kids are “sick” needs to stop! How we decipher what is going on with our children is all secondary.  At this time, we need t …

Response to Reader’s Questions
Author: Allan Gonsher, LIMHP, LCSW, RPT-S
December 28th, 2012
First, I want to thank the blogger who responded to my comment to “Never ask a child, “how was your day?  Those are code words for did you get into trouble? How much homework do you have?” She writes, “I’m sorry but I think this is silly.  Didn’t you ever ask your boys how their day was?  I enjoy asking because it usually draws out something from one of my kids that can start the conversation ab …

Homework #2
Author: Allan Gonsher, LIMHP, LCSW, RPT-S
November 19th, 2012
I want to talk about school for a bit.  School professionals should NOT read this blog entry.  Three things about school: #1-We have to keep the sanctity of the home separate from the school.  School has its mission and homes have theirs.  Too often homework and the issues of school get dragged into the home.  We have to create our home how we want it, not how schools want it to be.  That means homework is sepa …

Homework is Your Child’s Responsibility
Author: Allan Gonsher, LIMHP, LCSW, RPT-S
October 18th, 2012
Let’s talk about the dreaded “H” word, Homework. I think we need to loosen up. We go to work; kids go to school. We come home with stuff; they come home with stuff. It is their responsiblity, not ours, and at a certain point, kids can do it. Depending on learning styles or learning disabilities, most kids can learn their “learning style” and become self-sufficient. I think you should set aside a time every night wh …

The 4 “B”s
Author: Allan Gonsher, LIMHP, LCSW, RPT-S
September 26th, 2012
Can you imagine your child waking up in the morning and taking care of their room, keeping it clean, finishing their bathroom responsibilities, making breakfast, putting away their dishes, and getting their backpack ready?   I think I can help you with that.  This is what you do.  Let’s say you have to be out of the house by 7:15.  So, 7:00 is the inspection time.  You tell your child the areas of concern, the …
