- Parenting With Love and Logic: Example
Guest Author: Foster Cline & Lisa Green| Share |
Many parents who visit this site have adopted special needs children. I think you will be blessed by the cohost of this series who has two special needs children as she gives practical advice on how she is raising her children with love and logic. However, the lessons provided here are great with any kids, not just kids with health issues!
Today check out the second "E" of Example in this short video clip.
From 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.
