Love and Logic is a philosophy of raising and teaching children which allows adults to be happier, empowered, and more skilled in their interactions with children. Love allows children to grow through their mistakes. Logic allows children to live with the consequences of their choices. Love and Logic is a way of working with children that puts parents and teachers back in control, teaches children to be responsible, and prepares young people to live in the real world, with its many choices and consequences.

Northwest AEA can provide training through "Becoming Love & Logic Parent” curriculum and the “9 Essential Skills for a Love & Logic Classroom."

The teacher curriculum, “9 Essential Skills for a Love & Logic Classroom,” consists of nine modules that are each approximately one hour in length. This professional development program gives teachers the classroom management skills they’ve been looking for. With this curriculum, educators will learn: classroom management skills at their best, home-school connection solutions, how to end students arguing and set limits without lectures, and skills to prevent problems and save time for teaching. This class also includes a workbook for teachers to have as a resource.

The parent curriculum has been updated and consists of six two-hour sessions. During the classes, parents learn to avoid un-winnable power struggles and arguments, stay calm when kids do incredibly upsetting things, set enforceable limits, avoid enabling and begin empowering, help kids learn from mistakes rather than repeating them, and raise kids who are family members rather than dictators. The class involves going through a workbook (cost of $8 each) so parents have a resource to follow once the class is over.

Please contact Bobbi Mehrer or Cindy Baird at Northwest AEA to arrange these classes in your district.
