When your babies or toddlers watch you ACT rather than REACT and handle
their testing without breaking a sweat, you are setting expectations for behavior
and laying the groundwork for a respectful relationship with a child who views
you as a loving authority. Then, both you and your young one feel more
confident, grounded and happy.
A good night's sleep is a precious commodity in these first few years.
Oftentimes, you are not operating on a whole lot of reserve. If you have a few
simple, applicable parenting skills to rely on when you are tired and frustrated,
you will have more energy for the fun times!
In this parenting class, you are learning skills that work immediately and apply
to the entirety of our child's development. So the earlier you start, the more
years of benefit you and your child will receive.
Join a series and get your SMILE ON while parenting young ones!
BABY EXAMPLE: Eight month old Jack has just thrown his bottle on the
floor from his height chair again. In the past, mom has picked it up and given it
back to him with a huffy breath of frustration. However, mom recently attended
a Parenting the Love and Logic Way™ class and wants to try a new approach.
This time she picks up the bottle from the floor, smiles at Jack lovingly, puts
the bottle in the sink and says "No problem!" Mom shows no anger or
frustration and she does not talk about it. She takes control in a loving way.
TODDLER EXAMPLE: Mom has asked three year old Jill to remove her
toys from the kitchen floor so she can begin cooking dinner safely. Jill runs to
her playroom and ignores mom. Mom decides to experiment with a new skill
she learned at a Love and Logic® class. She resists the urge to remind or
lecture Jill about her toys and instead simply picks up the toys herself and puts
them out of reach. When Jill comes looking for her favorite doll that she left on
the kitchen floor, mom smiles and says "Oh sweetie, when you pick up your
toys then you get to keep them. When I pick up your toys then I get to keep
them." Mom again resists the urge to say anything more about it as she has
learned that loving action says more than words.

|"I have a 5 year old. Being her dad is the
most fun and most challenging thing I've
ever done in my life. Sometimes I want to
burst from joy and pride and sometimes I
want to rip my hair out in frustration. I
realized when she was a toddler that my
wife and I didn't have all the tools we
needed. Wendy has been advising me
since then, and led me to read Love and
Logic Magic for Early Childhood. I loved the
book, but when it came to using the Love
and Logic® approach her guidance was
invaluable. The book is a reference and
Wendy is a guide, with years of her own
experience with Love and Logic as a parent
and a parenting coach. Wendy has helped
transform how we parent. Our family is
happier and our home is more peaceful and
loving because of her."
