Parenting with Love and Logic…PLUS Workshopstrategy pic
This workshop provides information to teach parents how to respond to their children’s behaviors in firm and loving ways. Emphasis is on skills that parents can use immediately and with the long term goal of helping their children become more responsible. Love and Logic is a philosophy founded by Jim Fay and Foster W. Cline, M.D., and is based on the experience of a combined total of over 75 years working with and raising kids.

This workshop provides simple and practical techniques to help parents and teachers have less stress and more fun while teaching and raising responsible kids. The PLUS comes from the added information Lester provides from the other workshops she has attended and facilitated. The workshop is interactive, fun and works!

This workshop is 12 hours of education; includes workbook and materials.
