The Rules of Love and Logic


Rule #1:

Adults take good care of themselves by setting firm limits in loving ways without anger, lecture, or threats.


Rule #2:

When a child causes a problem, the adult hands it back in loving ways.

1.    In a loving way, the adults hold the children accountable for solving their problems in a way that does not make a problem for others.

2.    Children are offered choices within limits.

3.    Adults use enforceable statements.

4.    Adults provide delayed/extended consequences.

The adult's empathy is "locked in" before consequences are delivered.
