Guiding Children to Solve Their Own Problems By Jim Fay

Love and Logic Step One: Empathy
  • “How sad.”

  • “I bet that hurts.”


Love and Logic Step Two: Send the “Power Message

  • “What do you think you’re going to do?”


Love and Logic Step Three: Offer Choices

  • “Would you like to hear what other kids have tried?”

  • At this point, offer a variety of choices that range from bad to good. It’s usually best to start out with the poor choices.

  • Each time a choice is offered, go on to step four, encouraging the youngster to state the consequence in his/her own words. This means that you will be going back and forth between Love and Logic steps three and four.


Love and Logic Step Four: Have the child state the consequences

  • “And how will that work?”


Love and Logic Step Five: Give permission for the child to either solve the problem or not solve the problem

  • “Good luck. I hope it works out.”

  • Have no fear. If the child is fortunate to make a poor choice, he/she may have a double learning lesson.
