Parenting With Love and Logic
New resource in Ukrainian language beneficial for Family and Orphan Care ministry.
Psychiatrist Cline and educator Fay's "Love and Logic" parenting method advocates raising responsible children through practice. "Helicopter" parents hover around their children while "drill sergeant" parents give orders to theirs, they claim. Neither of these styles permits children to learn how to make choices and learn from the consequences. The result is that as early as adolescence these children too often make bad decisions. In the context of a healthy, loving relationship, "Love and Logic" parents teach their children responsibility and the logic of life by solving their own problems, providing skills for coping in the real world. After laying out the principles of "Love and Logic," the authors provide "parenting pearls," which are strategies for applying the method to actual situations such as back-seat battles in the car, homework, and keeping bedrooms clean.
“Several days ago I have got a book “Parenting with Love and Logic” that is published by “New Hope Ukraine”. It took me few days to “swallow” it. When I first read just the name of this book I thought that this is one of these books with boring advices from some experts of pedagogy, but when I just start reading it I found interesting and practical advices on how to teach children responsibility. Moreover a lot of examples from real lives are shown in “Pearls”, after reading those you understand that probably every family faces similar problems, but not all of us are able to solve them. I think that this book will be very useful for parents with younger children, because they will be starting process of disciplining already equipped. Even though authors of this book notify that parenting is not easy but they are also right that this process can be transform to thrill occupation.
In the most of Ukrainian families, moms are trying to guard their children almost till their marriage, so that is why this book might be real revelation for them. That is shy I will recommend this book to all my friends and relatives, so they also could understand that it is possible to raise responsible and success children only by letting them learn from their mistakes under our wise supervision.
Wish you good luck and gratitude for the great book!”
