I truly APPRECIATE the uniqueness of each member of an audience. Their experiences, character and insight are what makes my job so much FUN! Thankfully, I always learn something new in each session.
I attended my first Parenting with Love and Logic training in 2002, and I was in awe of how SIMPLE the concept was... it was a timeless approach to parenting. Created by Jim Fay and Dr. Foster Cline in 1977, Love and Logic prepares young people to live in the real world, with its many choices and consequences. This is not some "new age" program of checks and balances...rewards or punishments. Love and Logic allows the CHILDREN to take responsibility for their actions, thus empowering the child to learn from their mistakes as they work through the consequences.
My goal? To encourage and empower YOU, as a parent or teacher...or both! To empower you with ACTUAL techniques that will bring the FUN back into your home or classroom! To leave more time for you to ENJOY the relationship with your children and students, instead of bogging down your time with mindless arguing and reminders. Discipline CAN be a challenge...but isn't that what makes our job GREAT? Our job as teachers and parents is to raise RESPONSIBLE kids who will lead productive lives in our world. Fortunately, our children give us PLENTY of opportunities to TEACH them the value of real life consequences! Let the FUN begin! :)
