Philosophy

What are Cornerstone's philosophical beliefs and how do they apply to work with patients and children?

Everyone should know what they are getting into when working with a professional, especially about something so important as their own children or their own lives. Cornerstone takes their job extremely seriously, although we use humor on a regular basis. For that reason, we believes and practices the following:

  • Parents: Simple, respectful, consistent
  • Everyone has answers within them
  • Children want to be successful
  • Nothing - even death - is so serious you can't laugh at it
  • Pick your battles
  • Focus on solutions
  • Parents must form a united front
  • It's never too late for a fresh start
  • Technology is mostly good
  • It's entirely possible to work too hard or too much
  • Practice what you preach
  • If you want a friend, be a friend
  • Copy those you respect
  • Consider the "1000 year perspective"
  • The best parents provide lots of love and lots of discipline
  • Most of a person is temperament type and habits
  • Divorce is absolutely horrible, but oftentimes for the best
  • If you're a hammer, every problem's a nail
  • It's not getting what you want, but wanting what you've got
