Question SymbolWhen is a good time to start using Love and Logic?

Answer SymbolIt's never too late for parents to begin using the Love and Logic techniques regardless of whether the family has a teenager or a toddler. Of course the best time to start using Love and Logic is before the infant can walk. Our experience indicates that 8 - 9 months of age is a wonderful time to apply the techniques. Even if children don't understand spoken language, they do grasp the general ideas of what we say to them. No matter what the age of the child, the best time to start Love and Logic is now.

Question SymbolAre Love and Logic products available in other languages?

Answer SymbolParenting with Love and Logic (Ser Padres con Amor y Lógica) and the Becoming a Love and Logic Parent® Curriculum (only available to facilitators of the Becoming a Love and Logic Parent® Curriculum) are available in Spanish. We currently do not have plans to translate additional audio and video materials to other languages. In our experience, translating Jim and Charles' style of humor and voice inflection to other languages dilutes the power of the message and diminishes the effectiveness of the techniques.

Question SymbolAre you planning on modifying any existing products to address specific needs?

Answer SymbolThe Love and Logic approach captures powerful techniques in psychology and incorporates them into easy-to-use techniques. Modifying the material lessens the powerful content and complicates the simple methods taught. The concepts behind the Love and Logic philosophy address basic human needs. These needs encompass inclusion, structure, control and affection and exist in all groups and cultures.

    Question SymbolHow do we get Love and Logic started in our school?

    Answer SymbolTo start Love and Logic in your school, pick the best and most enthusiastic teachers to voluntarily study the 9 Essential Skills for the Love and Logic Classroom® Curriculum. The curriculum includes instructional videos, step-by-step facilitator guide, participant workbooks, Quick and Easy Classroom Interventions (audio CD), Teaching with Love and Logic (book), a Love and Logic tote bag, and one-on-one direct access to Jim Fay and Charles Fay, Ph.D., for support questions.

    Suggested guidelines:

    • Don't train all staff members the first year.
    • Don't require all staff members to adopt Love and Logic. This can be the demise for any program.
    • Introduce the program to staff by allowing everyone to view the first part. Use your own judgement as to when to stop the tape during the first presentation, and then announce that further training will be on a voluntary basis.
    • Create a study group made up of your most enthusiastic teachers. These are the staff members who should receive a Study Guide so that they can continue to work together in the study of Love and Logic during the first year. Some schools have required that teachers apply to the building committee for admittance into the study group. Make the study of Love and Logic an honor, not a mandate.
    • Create additional study groups as other staff members catch the enthusiasm generated by those using the curriculum.
