Choose "Love" The “Love” in Love and Logic means that we love our kids so much that we are willing to set and enforce limits. This “Love” also means that we do so with sincere compassion and empathy.
Choose "Logic" The “Logic” in Love and Logic happens when we allow children to make decisions, affordable mistakes and experience the natural or logical consequences. When we balance this with sincere empathy, they develop the following logic: The quality of my life depends on the quality of my choices.
With the loving yet powerful tools of Love and Logic, we can help our children learn to make good choices and experience happy lives while maintaining their love and respect.
Learn how to: -Put an End to Arguing, Backtalk, and Begging
-Teach Responsibility Without Losing Their Love
-Set Limits Without Waging War
-Avoid Power Struggles
-Guide Kids to Own and Solve Their Problems And much more!
Speaker: Christa Weins
Christa first discovered Love and Logic as an elementary school teacher. The years of practicing in the classroom only partially prepared her for applying it to her own children! As the mother of a large family, Christa gets plenty of opportunities to improve her skills. She really enjoys walking alongside other parents, building a community of families that support each other. In addition to teacher training, Christa has received many hours of foster parent training, received in preparation for her youngest child's adoption, and believes the principals of Love and Logic can also be effectively employed with kids from hard places.
