I heard from several sources that Love & Logic Parenting Techniques were wonderful. Well, I have been reading and practicing and our lives (mine and my childrens') have changed for the better! I feel like I have sanity and really enjoy each moment I have with my children. We have been doing it for a week and a half and I have not yelled nor used any other forms of discipline other than offering choices, by which they choose their consequences. As Love & Logic ways promised, they are learning from their consequences! I will admit it is rather exhausting at times because my kids certainly tested my to see if I stuck to it, but now they know I have and am...they have been making better choices and everyone is much happier! By the way,my kids are 4 and 3...boys. LIfe is much better around here.
