Parenting 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 – Helicopters, Drill Sergeants, and Consultants: Parenting Styles and the Messages They Send.
