Parenting the Love and Logic Way™ course begins Feb. 5
“Lower School counselor Kate Strother will offer the Parenting the Love and Logic Way™ course (five sessions) on Thursday mornings beginning February 5, 8:15-9:30am. Participants will learn how to avoid unwinnable power struggles, set enforceable limits, help their children learn from mistakes, and stay calm and empathetic even in the toughest situations. This program is designed to give parents practical skills they can use immediately! The curriculum was developed by Jim Fay, Charles Fay, Ph.D., and Foster W. Cline, M.D., of the Love and Logic Institute, Inc., and Kate is an independent facilitator of the program. The sessions will be held February 5, February 12, February 19, February 26, and March 5 in the Smythe Gambrell Library.”
Q. What if I am unable to attend one of the sessions?
Attendance at all five sessions is ideal, but it’s understood that something might come up that will conflict with one or two sessions. (See RSVP link below.)
Q. What materials will be available for my use?
Each participant will receive a workbook and additional printed materials.
Q. What is the format of the sessions?
The course combines DVD clips, presenter delivery, audience discussion, and workbook notes.
Q. Will I be expected to spill my family’s deepest, darkest secrets and personal tales of my child’s meltdowns in the grocery store?
Participants will be expected to have FUN. The atmosphere will be relaxed, honest, encouraging, and safe. If you’d like to share about that time you totally lost it in the produce section at Publix, we’ll make time to hear it! (Prediction: You’ll receive knowing nods of sympathetic agreement from the rest of the room. All parents probably have been there.)
Q. Will I be expected to follow this program word for word?
Absolutely not. A lot of information will be presented, and participants will be encouraged to choose the parts of the program that they’d like to try with their family.
Q. Do I need to read the book Parenting with Love and Logic before attending?
Q. What should I do if I have a question you haven’t answered here?
