Love & Logic

I learned about LOVE & LOGIC (a parenting philosophy) over at Radical Catholic Mom.
Here is a blub from the
Love and Logic website.

Love and Logic is a philosophy founded by Jim Fay and Foster W. Cline, M.D., and is based on the experience of a combined total of over 75 years working with and raising kids. It provides simple and practical techniques to help teachers and parents have less stress and more fun while raising responsible kids. Love and Logic offers many useful techniques that teachers and parents can begin experimenting with immediately. Here are some examples:
  • Locking–in sadness or empathy before delivering consequences
  • Setting limits with enforceable statements
  • Sharing control through lots of small choices
  • Building relationships with the One Sentence Intervention
  • Neutralizing arguing with the Brain Dead technique
  • The Anticipatory Consequence
