Love & Logic Parenting Class

on . Posted in News & Announcements

 

love and logicLooking for parenting tips and strategies? There is an approach to raising kids that provides loving support from parents while at the same time expecting kids to be respectful and responsible. 

Many parents want their kids to be well prepared for life, and they know this means kids will make mistakes and must be held accountable for those mistakes. But these parents often fail to hold the kids accountable for poor decisions because they are afraid the kids will see their parents as being mean. The result is they often excuse bad behavior, finding it easier to hold others, including themselves, accountable for their children's irresponsibility.This approach is known as Love & Logic, a philosophy founded by Jim 

Fay and Foster W. Cline, M.D., and based on the experience of a combined total of over 75 years working with and raising kids.

Jim Fay teaches us that we should "lock in our empathy, loveand understanding" prior to telling kids what the consequences of their actions will be. The Parenting the Love and Logic Way curriculum teaches parents how to hold their kids accountable in this special way. This Love and Logic method causes the child to see their parent as the "good guy" and the child's poor decision as the "bad guy." When done on a regular basis, kids develop an internal voice that says, "I wonder how much pain I'm going to cause for myself with my next decision?" Kids who develop this internal voice become more capable of standing up to peer pressure.

What more could a parent want? Isn't that a great gift to give your child? Parent child relationships are enhanced, family life becomes less strained, and we have time to enjoy our kids instead of either feeling used by them or being transformed from parent to policeman.

We hope you will join Anna Studer, School Counserlor, in learning more about parenting and how to nurture your parent-child relationship. The class is FREE if you live within our school district.  If you don't then the entire series is $40.

Classes will be held in the library and they begin Monday, April 20th and go for 6 weeks 6-7:30PM
