Parenting the Love and Logic Way™

Since 1977, the Love and Logic Institute has been dedicated to making parenting and teaching fun and rewarding, instead of stressful and chaotic. They provide practical tools and techniques that help adults achieve respectful, healthy relationships with their children and help them prepare their kids for the real world. All of their work is based on a psychologically sound parenting and teaching philosophy called Love and Logic. This six module parenting course was designed to help parents find specific answers and actions for some of those difficult moments in child rearing. These simple techniques are effective with all children, from toddlers to teens.

Dr. Stacey Benson and Donya Blair Tischer are independent facilitators of the Parenting the Love and Logic Way curriculum, a six session parenting program designed to help parents learn how to

  • Avoid un-winnable power struggles and arguments
  • Stay calm when their kids do incredibly upsetting things
  • Set enforceable limits
  • Avoid enabling and begin empowering
  • Help their kids learn from mistakes rather than repeating them
  • Raise kids who are family members rather than dictators

And much more!

This parenting program is designed to give you practical skills that can be used immediately!
Why does it work?

  • Uses Humor, hope and empathy to build up the adult-child relationship
  • Emphasizes respect and dignity both for children and adults
  • Provides real limits in a loving way
  • Teaches consequences and healthy decisions making

Love allows children to grow through their mistakes, Logic allows them to live with the consequences of their choices.
