Whether you are the parent of a toddler or a teenager, you know parenting can be stressful and even overwhelming at times.
Parenting these days is more difficult than ever, and what worked for your parents may not be as effective now. After all, you’re trying to raise a responsible and successful child who can think for themself in a world of TV, Internet, Facebook, Myspace, Music, Video Games, Drugs, Alcohol and Peer Pressure.
And you didn’t even get an owner’s manual!
Can parenting really be fun and effective?
Yes! IF you have the right skills and tools.
That’s why we offer parent groups to learn the Love & Logic® parenting concepts. Love & Logic® techniques are backed by 20 years of experience and are being taught and used in homes and schools across the country. Our process groups are more than just a place to learn techniques, they are a place to create a support community and work through any self-defeating beliefs that keep you from being the parent you want to be.
The principles are based on providing real limits in a loving way, and emphasize respect and dignity for both parent and child.
Love & Logic® parents are:
· confident in parenting,
· effective, and
· more able to enjoy their family.
So their kids can:
· learn from their mistakes,
· be reliable and responsible, and
· be confident and secure.
