Shared thinking and decision-making
Equal shares of consequences with empathy
Maintain the child’s
OUR TEACHERS, ADMINISTRATORS AND STAFF ARE UNITED IN THEIR BELIEF THAT ALL CHILDREN respond well when treated with love and logic. PARENTS IN TRAINING OFFERS COURT APPROVED PARENTING CLASSES, AS WELL AS PROGRAMS SPECIALIZED FOR EDUCATORS AND SOCIAL WORK PROFESSIONALS.
People learn almost all things by modeling. Therefore, it is only the parents who put themselves first, in a good way, which will raise children who will put themselves first. This extremely important rule is learned at the beginning of the second year of life and will come to fruition in the way the adolescent handles his peer relationships later.
Parents want to raise children who think for themselves. Parents want children who are immune to peer pressure and who will always, in a good way, think for themselves and wonder, “is this good for me?” when others start barraging them with detrimental information about alcohol or drugs...
The child will identify with this wise parent... On the other hand, a parent who says “I always did everything for my children,” and always put himself last, will raise children who will have poor self-images and who always put themselves last.
(Excerpt from Love and Logic parent reading The Primary Rule of Good Parenting by Foster W. Cline, M.D.)
