Kaitlin Tuohy Benefits Lets children ‘make their own mistakes’,
Children are aware of the expectations
Makes self-confident, motivated, and ready for the real world, children
Decreases the ‘its not my fault’ attitude
Parents and teachers still make decisions for the times when it really does matter what the outcome is
There are options based on teaching this with children with special needs, such as autism and ADHD
Family life is less stressful/strained
Parent/Child relationship is enhanced
Parents can now feel more like a meaningful person in their child's life rather than being the "policeman." Drawbacks Parents and teachers must be consistent, or the strategy becomes less effective
Some children may not be as responsive to this at first
It may take a lot longer for the child to solve their problem on their own

2. Post a list of expectations in your classroom

-Love & Logic parents provide loving and understanding support while expecting respect and responsibility verses arguments and anger.

-Children must be accountable for their mistakes so they can learn from them.

-Many parents who don't use Love & Logic blame themselves or take responsibility for his/her child's actions History Theory Built Upon Behaviorism Learning is visible through change in behavior
The environment shapes Behavior
Repetition with love and logic reenforces learning -In Love & Logic children see their parents as the "good guy" while seeing their mistakes as the "bad guy."

-Love & Logic helps the child to achieve internal voice that says, "I wonder how much pain I'm going to cause for myself with next decision?
*"Kids who develop this internal voice become more capable of standing up to peer pressure." Developers of Love and Logic Using Empathy Love & Logic techniques in action: 1. Deliver consequences with empathy
2. Keep it short, sweet, simple and repetitive
3. Choose an empathetic statement you like and be genuine Sarcasm will ruin the moment and the relationship
4. Sad not mad
5. Your non-verbal communication is huge, children will be able to tell if you're not being sincere Dad: "Oh, no. You left your bike unlocked and it was stolen. What a bummer. I bet you feel awful. Well, I understand how easy it is to make a mistake like that."

Dad then adds: "And you'll have another bike as soon as you can earn enough money to pay for it. i paid for the first one. You can pay for the additional ones."

(All of these "parenting techniques" are done without anger, intimidation, or threats. if the child gets angry or combative, always go "brain dead." Brain dead mean that the parent does not argue or try to match the child. During this Brain dead stage, parents are encouraged to simply say, "I love you too much to argue." The Recovery Process -It's not a time out
-Designed to minimize a student's ability to interfere with learning and or teaching
- Student's should not receive personalized attention during this time
- The attitude of the teacher should be empathetic Jim Fay 31 years of experience in education
