“Parenting the Love and Logic ® Way”

a Better Approach to Raising Kids

Caring for a raising children is possibly one of the most challenging -- and potentially, most rewarding -- tasks a human being can endeavor to take on. Even great parents or caregivers can be baffled by some of the circumstances they face as they raise their children.

Parenting with Love and Logic® provides simple and practical techniques to help parents experience less stress and have more fun while raising more responsible and empowered kids. This parenting approach offers many useful techniques that can be applied immediately. Examples of these techniques include: 
  • Setting limits with "enforceable statements"
  • Sharing control through lots of small choices
  • Building relationships with the “One Sentence Intervention”
  • Neutralizing arguing with the “Brain Dead” technique
  • Delivering natural, “real-world” consequences with empathy instead of anger -- this encourages kids to be accountable for their behavior and learn from their mistakes



“Your class has provided practical and effective methods of responding to my kids' testing, and now, we have much fewer power struggles
than ever. Love and Logic has allowed me to develop a mutual 
respectful, trusting relationship with each of my children. I worry less about

whether or not they are going to make good decisions, because now I know how to help them learn through the bad ones!”

"Before learning Love and Logic, my parenting style went back and forth between constant hovering and reminding (helicopter-parent), and shouting out with command & control (drill sergeant parent). It never felt good and I always walked around with a combination of anxiety and guilt. I was terrified that my kids were growing up 'entitled,' and that they would not learn how to be responsible for themselves. Now that I learned how to be a Love and Logic Parent, I am confident that my parenting skills are encouraging my children to be the best that they can be. I can consistently (and CALMLY!) set boundaries and provide consequences when necessary. My children's self-esteem has grown like never before as they now have an understanding that their choices are their's to make. So when they make good choices, their confidence grows, and when they make bad ones, they learn valuable life lessons. I am so grateful to have finally learned an effective way to parent these future leaders!"
