The Love and Logic Institute, Inc., developed training materials designed to teach educators and parents how to experience less stress while helping young people learn the skills required for success in today’s world. This approach is called Love and Logic and is based on the following two assumptions:
- That children learn the best lessons when they're given a task and allowed to make their own choices (and fail) when the cost of failure is still small; and
- That the children's failures must be coupled with love and empathy from their parents and teachers.
This model has been used by parents and teachers and has been applied to a wide range of situations.
The overall goal of Love and Logic is:
- Help parents avoid negative interactions with their children that lead to neglect and abuse
