Love and Logic - Insider's Club
What's the first rule of Love and Logic?
Take good care of yourself by setting limits without anger, lectures, threats or repeated warnings.
Many parents feel guilty about putting themselves first. Why? Because they have a little voice in their head that is always telling them what good parents "should" do, for example:
  • Good parents should do everything for their kids.
  • Good parents should sacrifice all of their own needs so that their children are never uncomfortable.
  • Good parents should never be happy if their kids aren't.
Don't fall into the trap of raising your kids according to these "shoulds." Doing so creates kids who aren't prepared for the real world. Doing so also creates kids who are a terror to be around!
When we put our children first all of the time, we are typically too drained to show them how much we love them.
Never feel guilty about taking good care of yourself. Feel guilty if you don't.
To master the first rule of Love and Logic, watch our video that aired on PBS titled: How to Discipline Kids without Losing Their Love and Respect.
