Parenting with Love and Logic: Teaching Children Responsibility

 

by Foster Cline and Jim Fay

“A mother and father stand outside of a restaurant in the rain asking their three-year-old, Chloe, to get in the car so the family can go home. Chloe refuses. Her parents spend the next fifteen minutes begging and pleading with her to do it on her own. At one point, the father gets down on his knees in the puddles, trying to reason her into the car. She finally complies, but only after her parents agree to buy her a soda on the way home. If they have to use a soda to buy her off at three, what will they be facing when she reaches sixteen?”
Does this sound at all familiar. Are you finding yourself negotiating, rescuing, or sheltering your child too often. This book provides parents with practical advice on how to develop your child’s sense of self-discipline and independent problem-solving. It will help you teach your child that there are natural consequences for his/her behavior and take away some of the stress of parenting.
