empathyYou're trying to raise world changers but you can hardly get through the morning without some act of defiance. How should you respond verbally (and non-verbally) to your children's behavior while disciplining them? The WAY you discipline your children will either lead to remorse or resentment. In our next video, find out what Dr. Foster Cline recommends to help your children own their behavior in a positive, life-influencing manner.


parenting with love and logicFrom Library Journal: Psychiatrist Cline and educator Fay's "Love and Logic" parenting method advocates raising responsible children through practice. "Helicopter" parents hover around their children while "drill sergeant" parents give orders to theirs, they claim. Neither of these styles permits children to learn how to make choices and learn from the consequences. The result is that as early as adolescence these children too often make bad decisions. In the context of a healthy, loving relationship, "Love and Logic" parents teach their children responsibility and the logic of life by solving their own problems, providing skills for coping in the real world. After laying out the principles of "Love and Logic," the authors provide "parenting pearls," which are strategies for applying the method to actual situations such as back-seat battles in the car, homework, and keeping bedrooms clean.
