As a parent, we want our kids to be well-prepared for life This means kids will make mistakes and must be held accountable for those mistakes. Many times, parents often fail to hold the kids accountable for poor decisions, this results in children and parents finding it easier to hold others, including themselves, accountable for their children's irresponsibility.
The parenting course Parenting the Love and Logic Way teaches parents how to hold their kids accountable in this special way. This Love and Logic method causes the child to see their parent as the "good guy" and the child's poor decision as the "bad guy." When done on a regular basis, kids develop an internal voice that says, "I wonder how much pain I'm going to cause for myself with my next decision?" Kids who develop this internal voice become more capable of standing up to peer pressure.
What more could a parent want? Isn't that a great gift to give your child? Parent child relationships are enhanced, family life becomes less strained, and we have time to enjoy our kids instead of either feeling used by them or being transformed from parent to policeman.
A six week course on Love and Logic parenting will be offered at Edmond First United Methodist Church beginning Wednesday, September 12 at 6 pm, following the weekly fellowship dinner beginning at 5:15 pm.
