The Two Rules of Love and Logic:
Rule #1: Adults set limits without anger, lectures, threats or repeated warnings. When we describe what we will do or allow, that’s setting a limit. When we tell a child what he/she should or shouldn’t do, that’s a possible fight.
Rule #2: When children cause problems, adults hand these problems back in loving ways. We hand the problem back by replacing anger and lectures with a strong dose of empathy followed by the logical consequence.
Dr. Charles Fay suggests, “Our parenting and teaching packages are full of specially selected materials designed for learning how to apply the Rules of Love and Logic in simple, manageable segments.”
