Parenting with ‘Love and Logic’
Since 1977, the Love and Logic Institute has been dedicated to making parenting and teaching fun and rewarding, instead of stressful and chaotic, by providing practical tools and techniques that help adults achieve respectful, healthy relationships with their children and help them prepare their kids for the real world.
The work is based on a parenting and teaching philosophy called Love and Logic.
Back by popular demand, Love and Logic is returning to Vernon next month for the eighth time. More than 200 families in the community have been encouraged by this course, which will be facilitated by Joel Haberstock, BEd, M.Sc., and parent educator Jodie Haberstock, BA. This program is sponsored by St. John’s Lutheran Church.
“Love allows children to grow through their mistakes,” said Joel Haberstock. “Logic allows them to live with the consequences of their choices. The Love and Logic approach is easy to use, raises responsible kids, and changes lives.
“You are invited to attend this six-week parenting course that could change your home forever.”
Classes run Mondays, beginning April 8 from 6 p.m. to 7:45 p.m. at St. John’s Lutheran Church (the church with the bells behind Butcher Boys.)
As well, a meal is offered starting at 5:15 p.m. for just $10 per family.
Haberstock said the program offers a variety of techniques for parents to learn how to put an end to arguing, back talk and begging; teach responsibility without losing their love; set limits without waging war; avoid power struggles; guide kids to own and solve their problems; teach kids to complete chores without reminders and without pay.
The program costs $40 for a couple and $25 for an individual. The cost includes a parent manual, with extra manuals available for $10. Childcare will be available at a cost of $3 per child or $5 per family.
