Parenting Teens with Love and Logic by Foster Cline, MD and Jim Fay

The Love and Logic approach to parenting was developed by Dr. Foster Cline (a child psychiatrist) and Jim Fay (a school administrator with 35 years of experience).  Their approach is based upon two basic principles:

(1) Helping children learn responsibility, the ability to do what they want as long as they don’t create problems for others, and

(2) Viewing mistakes as learning experiences.  Their approach fits within the values and beliefs of most parents and is very practical.

The examples given in the books are excellent and often humorous.

The authors have written another excellent book for parenting teens:  Hormones & Wheels: Parent Survival Tips for Those Chaotic Teen Years.

  1. I wish to express my airopceapitn to the writer just for rescuing me from such a instance. Just after scouting throughout the search engines and coming across things that were not beneficial, I believed my life was over. Being alive without the presence of solutions to the issues you have resolved all through the posting is a serious case, as well as those which might have in a negative way affected my entire career if I had not come across the website. Your primary ability and kindness in dealing with everything was very useful. I don’t know what I would’ve done if I hadn’t discovered such a stuff like this. I am able to at this time look ahead to my future. Thanks so much for the reliable and amazing guide. I won’t think twice to propose the website to any person who should get recommendations on this problem.
