Certified Love & Logic Trainer
1 - 3 p.m.
Join me and other parents as you learn how to raise responsible kids who will become the best version of themselves.
Learn How To:
- Stop arguing, back talk and begging.
- Teach responsibility without losing their love.
- Set limits without waging war.
- Avoid power struggles.
- Guide kids to own and solve their problems.
- Teach kids to complete chores without reminders and without pay.
Does it ever seem like children carry around a little book called, “Arguing for Fun and Profit?” To put an end to this draining behavior, experiment with repeating the same loving Love and Logic “one-liner,” regardless of what your child says. The key, of course, is to maintain a soft, empathetic tone of voice. Listed below are some examples:
- “I love you too much to argue.”
- “Probably so.”
- “I know.”
- “I bet it feels that way.”
- “What do you think you’re going to do?”
- “What did I say?”
- “I don’t know. What do you think?”
- “There’s no time for making kitten britches.” (Some of the most effective one-liners are really strange!)
