Parenting the Love and Logic Way
Catholic Charities offers a parenting class that provides practical tools and techniques that help adults achieve respectful, healthy relationships with their children. The authors of “Parenting the Love and Logic Way® (Charles Fay, PhD. and Foster Cline, M.D.) state that Love and Logic is a way for parents to take control of the home, while at the same time teaching kids to be responsible, think for themselves and be prepared for the real world. Class participants (including parents, grandparents, foster parents and educators) learn many parenting skills in the class through the use of education, interactive discussion, videos, assignments and role-modeling.
