Children learn the best lessons when they're given a task and allowed to make their own choices (and fail) when the cost of failure is still small. Children's failures must be coupled with love and empathy from their parents and teachers."
(Parenting Teens With
Love and Logic)
Youth are lacking the emotional and relational skills to build strong internal connections to themselves, to others and to the world. Students need to feel that adults care about them as individuals as well as about their academic achievement."
(Resnick MD, Bearman PS, Blum RW. Findings from the National Longitudinal Study on Adolescent Health and Development 2002)
The Love and Logic parenting method teaches parents how to raise self-confident, motivated children who are ready for the real world. It empowers parents with practical skills to reduce behavior problems, set limits, encourage wise decision making and grow in their character. Learn how to establish healthy control without anger, threats, nagging or power struggles.
Love and Logic is a complement to our youth programs by providing parents with the coaching tools and resources to help adults achieve respectful, enjoyable and healthy relationships with their children. It can be delivered as 7 weekly sessions or in a flexible workshop format.
