LOVE AND LOGIC: EARLY CHILDHOOD PARENTING MADE FUN!™
CREATING HAPPY FAMILIES & RESPONSIBLE KIDS
This 5-week course on parenting young children is rooted in the “Love and Logic: Early Childhood Parenting Made Fun!” curriculum. A variety of other evidence-based and parent-tested approaches are woven into the class in order to address the needs of various children and their parents’ parenting styles. Parenting styles that are incorporated include the teachings from Attachment Theory, Neuroscience, Dan Siegel, Alan Kazdin and Dan Hughes.
This parenting program helps parents reduce behavior problems and increase responsibility in children. A large piece of this program is about improving family closeness and healthy relationships.
We address common trouble areas such as:
- Getting ready in the mornings
- Getting kids to listen the first time
- Ending power struggles
- Making bedtime peaceful
- Putting an end to yelling and whining (for the kids AND the parents!)
This Head & Heart Parents class is taught in an engaging and interactive style including story-telling, lecture, videos, group discussion, role-play and laughter. Parents have the opportunity to share and learn from one another, which usually leads people to feel like their challenges are more normal than they thought.
