It was the mid 1970’s, and two men were concerned about the number of parents and educators struggling with challenging children and teens.
They won’t listen to a thing I say. If I’d have known how hard it was to be a parent, I wouldn’t have had kids!
Every year the students get more out of control. Now I spend more time doing discipline than teaching. Something’s got to give!
Foster W. Cline, M.D., a child psychiatrist, and Jim Fay an educator of nearly thirty years, began their quest to find solutions. Over the next decade their research and real-life experience gave birth to the Love and Logic approach. Learn more about underlying research.
These respected experts discovered that children thrive when they…
- have loving, compassionate and genuinely empathetic parents and teachers
- experience consistent limits and accountability
- are allowed to learn by making plenty of small, “affordable” mistakes
- are taught to own and solve the problems they encounter
Today Love and Logic is trusted world-wide for practical and effective resources for bringing the joy back to parenting and teaching.
