Love and Logic is a philosophy of raising and teaching children which allows adults to be happier, empowered, and more skilled in the 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.

Almost anyone will benefit from the Love and Logic approach. Our products especially help parents and teachers enjoy working with children through easy-to-use techniques. The Love and Logic approach helps children develop and grow in a healthy way, provides them with confidence and dignity, and teaches them how to become more responsible. The possibilities are limitless.

Love and Logic offers adults an alternative way to communicate with children. The Love and Logic techniques produce immediate results because the techniques are simple, practical, and easy to learn. The concepts behind Love and Logic place a heavy emphasis on respect and dignity for children and at the same time allows parents to grasp simple approaches instead of learning difficult counseling procedures.

The Love and Logic Institute, Inc. does not provide counseling or therapy services. If you need mental health assistance, we recommend you contact a local referral service. Although Love and Logic is not a substitute to therapy, it can be a powerful addition. The philosophy encourages healthy communication and gives people a glimpse of how a healthy family functions. It also provides easy-to-learn techniques that can be applied immediately.

It'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.

The best way to share the Love and Logic message is to give the person one of our books or audios and say, "could you use some laughs?" The powerful content will allow them to discover for themselves how the techniques can help build a healthy relationship with children.

Teach Love and Logic skills to parents with kids of all ages with the Crianza con Amor y Lógica® curriculum!

The participant workbooks for the following curricula are now 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.

Our exceptional customer service staff is trained to help you select specific materials related to your issues. All of our products carry a satisfaction guarantee. If you are not satisfied, please call 800-338-4065 and we will assist you.

All Love and Logic materials are copyrighted and may not be reproduced in any manner, including placement on the Internet. Please help us preserve the integrity of the Love and Logic philosophy. Tell people as much as possible about Love and Logic, but please do not copy, distribute, or create new materials.

If you have questions, please email

The 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.

The science of intrinsic motivation is complex, involving a wide array of factors. One of the most important, yet perhaps the most ignored, involves the following truths:

Every child is born with a unique temperament and set of gifts. We can parent well, but we cannot change the essence of who they are. When we encourage them to focus on their gifts, this creates high motivation. When we obsess over their weaknesses, we create frustration and apathy.

To learn more about how to motivate kids, check out our webinar, Success with Underachievers: Creating Self-Motivated Learners.

The first thing to remember is that the child’s report card is the child’s… not ours. While it’s easy to get down on ourselves when kids perform poorly, it’s very important to our mental health and theirs to remember the following:

1. We can’t learn for kids.

2. We can’t control every action they take or decision they make.

3. Many highly successful people struggled with grades as children.

4. When we encourage them to focus on their gifts, this creates high motivation.

5. When we obsess over their weaknesses, we create frustration and apathy.

Rather than fighting with kids about their grades, consider reading From Bad Grades to a Great Life!

Educators' FAQs

To 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, and ten participant workbooks. There is no additional training required. The design of the curriculum allows trainers to present successfully without special training. View the course syllabus.  

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.
