Love and Logic Overview

Looking for some practical strategies to help students become more responsible, not only for their academic work, but also for solving conflicts with classmates? Ever have trouble coming up with consequences for student misbehavior on the spot? Are younger parents asking for help in training their children? Do you want faculty to come to school refreshed each day instead of burnt out with chronic discipline problems or classroom management challenges? We have found helpful answers in Love and Logic parenting materials and training materials. While not all of the strategies in this curriculum are appropriate for a classical Christian school setting, many of them have been helpful in training our faculty and students, and for providing a common language for students, parents and faculty alike.
