Love and Logic – Early Childhood (ages 0-7) Curriculum

Love & Logic is a relationship-based, natural consequences approach to parenting. This is a video-based curriculum facilitated by our parenting educator which will provide discussion, tools and tips to try with your own family.

Parenting little ones can be exhausting…until you discover Love and Logic. Take the exhaustion out and put the fun into parenting your little one.  If you want help with potty training, temper tantrums, bedtime, whining, time-out, hassle-free mornings and many other everyday challenges then this class is for you!

This class is for parents of children up to age 7 and helps start your child off on the right foot. The tools in Love and Logic for Early Childhood will give you the building blocks you need to create children who grow up to be responsible, successful teens and adults. And as a bonus you will enjoy every stage of your child’s life and look forward to sharing a lifetime of joy with them.
