Using Love and Logic to Develop Responsibility

Course Description

This course gives an introduction of the principles of “Love and Logic:” an institution developed to help parents and educators teach responsibility to children as well as help them take ownership of their own actions.  By implementing the principles of “Love and Logic” in the classroom, educators can minimize arguments and other negative interactions with students and instead promote learning and growth opportunities for their students.  Through the use of natural consequences, empathy, and love, educators give students the chance to solve their own problems with appropriate guidance, which in turn helps students be better learners and better people.
