The concept of these skills is to help schools and teachers to move from system based approaches in classroom management and discipline to principles based approaches. It is designed to assist in changing school and classroom management techniques from the external forces of rules enforced by punishment and/or rewards to those built on internal forces such as character, responsibility and accountability. These are the forces that help us all to do things because they are the right things to do, thus building strength in our students from the inside out.

A tremendous asset to the Teaching with Love and Logic Program is the parallel program Parenting with Love and Logic. Putting the parent and the school on the same page when it comes to student management in and out of the classroom truly builds a community around each student. Jim and Charles Fay and Foster Cline, the developers of the Love and Logic Institute, have shown great insight into this concept by creating this parallel parenting program where school staff and parents speak the same language and use similar skills to build communication, cooperation and consistency.

Becoming a Love and Logic Parent:

Module Three: “C” Stands for Control that is Shared
Module Four: “O” is for Ownership of the Problem
Module Five: “O” is Also Opportunity for Thinking
Module Six: “L” Stands for Let Empathy and Consequences do the Teaching
Module Seven: Applying the C.O.O.L. Formula

Love: allows the child to grow from their mistakes
Logic: allows the child to live the consequences of their choices
