Rules of Love and Logic

By Jim Fay

Rule #1

Adults set firm limits in loving ways without anger, lecture, or threats.

Rule #2

When a child causes a problem the adult hands it back in loving ways

  • In a loving way, the adult holds the child accountable for solving his/her problems in a way that does not make a problem for others.
  • Children are offered choices with limits.
  • Adults use enforceable statements.
  • Adults provide delayed/extended consequences.
  • The adult's empathy is "locked in" before consequences are delivered.
