Love and Logic Day #1

I just received a book on loan from a dear friend of mine. 

The Love and Logic Journal by Jim Fay and Foster W. Cline, M.D.

Day #1
  • Don’t show love by hovering or constantly trying to control.  Show love by always being available with advice.
  • Gain control by giving some up:  give your child positive control by offering alternatives. 

I am a very impatient, intolerant, hovering, and controlling mother.  Today my son did not want to put his jacket on before going to school, despite the fact that it is 35 degrees Farenheight outside.  I offered a positive alternative by asking him to at least carry his jacket to school, just in case he needed it later.  It worked!  No tantrum, no arguing, and he was happy to take his jacket.
