Q: I'm already a good parent. Why do I need this class?
A: All parents who attend our classes are loving, caring parents with many parenting skills. Raising kids is the most difficult job they will ever do. Society has changed and it's harder to raise kids today than it was when we were growing up. Wise parents realize this and look for new skills to add to their present skills.
Q: There are so many different instructors. What are the differences between each?
A: First, the content of each class is written by the Love & Logic Institute and is the same between instructors. The difference lies in the experience and perspective they bring to the class.
Q: I have a teenager. Is it too late to take these classes?
A: It's never too late. Parents of teens who have taken this class say it has improved their relationship with their teen and helped them move more smoothly through the teen years.
Q: When should I start with Love & Logic?
A: It's never too late for parents to begin using the Love and Logic techniques regardless of whether the family has a teenager or a toddler. The best time to start using Love and Logic is before the infant can walk. We have found that 8-9 months of age is a wonderful time to apply the techniques. Even if children don't understand spoken language, they do grasp the general ideas of what we say to them. No matter what the age of the child, the best time to start Love and Logic is now.
Q: I've heard a lot about Jim and Charles Fay. Are they going to be presenting?
A: Jim and Charles Fay won't be there in person, but the classes are based on the curriculum they've developed and they are featured on video tape segments each week.
Q: This is a big time committment. Why does it take so long?
A: Each week you will learn new skills and have the opportunity to reinforce those skills through worksheets, readings, and many fun and instructional videos by Jim and Charles Fay. The structure of the class also gives parents plenty of opportunities for discussions with other parents.
Q: I've heard a lot about this class and I really want to take it. I'm not sure I can afford it, though.
A: No problem! Please talk to the individual facilitators about payment options or scholarships.
