Love and Logic Parenting™
The “Love” in Love and Logic means that we love our kids so much that we are willing to set and enforce limits, doing so with sincere compassion and empathy. 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.
