Love and Logic® is a common sense approach to parenting that teaches parents the skills that cultivate confidence and good decision-making in children by offering them choices, empathy, and respect while adults avoid anger, threats, warnings, or lectures.  It is an easy to learn program that has been changing lives and helping parents raise responsible children since 1977.

Love and Logic® can be used with children from infancy through adolescence.  It is highly effective with many developmental and behavioral issues.  It teaches parents how to provide consistency and structure so critical for many childhood diagnoses.
