Love and Logic-Help for Busy, Overwhelmed Parents

How to end arguing and manipulation
When parents can remain calm and respond to arguing with simple phrases, such as "I love you too much to argue" or "What did I say?" their children begin to learn that arguing and manipulating does not pay.

How to avoid power struggles while helping their children learn to make good choices
Many of the power struggles parents find themselves pulled into start when they try to ensure that their kids don't make mistakes. Small mistakes and their associated consequences help kids develop the wisdom to avoid making larger ones later on.

Tools for neutralizing defiance
Parents can side-step power struggles by responding to statements like "you can't make me" by saying, "I'm going to have to do something about this…but not now. We’ll talk later." Delaying consequences gives parents time to calm down and consider effective consequences.

How to replace anger and frustration with empathy
When we provide empathy before consequences our kids are forced to think about their poor decisions rather than our anger. That's what really makes learning happen!
