Rules of Love and Logic
Adults set firm limits in loving ways without anger, lecture, or threats.
When a child causes a problem the adult hands it back in loving ways.

Sorting Activity
1. Read each strip of paper in your baggie.
2. Listen carefully for a pattern.
3. Break the strips of paper into two groups based on some over arching pattern you heard.
4. Be able to justify why you put a strip into each group.

1. In a loving way, the teacher holds the child accountable
for solving his/her problems
in a way that does not make a problem for others
2. Children are offered choices with limits
(so the solutions children come up with are approved by the teacher and/or the teacher is comfortable with the options)
3. Teachers use enforceable statements.
4. Teachers can provide delayed/extended consequences.
5. The teachers’s empathy is “locked in” before consequences
are delivered.
5. Get out the handout called, "Turn your words into Gold"
6. Read what enforceable statements are and decide if any of the statements in your piles need to be moved so that your team has a pile of ineffective techniques and a 2nd pile Love and Logic techniques (enforceable statements)
7. Discuss why these statements might work in a classroom more effectively than others.
8. Brainstorm scenarios where you might see yourself using one or more of these enforceable statements.
You may work together but DO NOT use your other tools/handouts.)
Video Resources:
Work as a team to read and process the following prezi about Love and Logic... As you go, write down questions you have on the poster or
sticky notes.
Rule 1 applied:
"Sarah, it is not acceptable to be late to class."

"Group 1, I expect you to collaborate during this time to accomplish your project. This is your only time to do so."

"Class, stop what you are doing, reread our class norms, decide if your personal behavior is appropriate or not. Then, make adjustments immediately."
Rule 2 applied:
It is too bad that you chose to not finish your centers work today. You can either take it home for homework or finish it during your recess. Which option will you chose?

I am really sad that you chose to break our class norm of 'respect your neighbors'. You can either call your mom at lunch time to explain what happened and how you will solve the problem or you can write her a letter at lunch explaining the situation and then I'll call her tonight. Which option will you chose?

I am sad to see that you chose to not turn in your homework. What do you think could be a solution to this consistent problem?

I am sorry to hear that you and Sam couldn't agree on how to complete your project. What do you think should happen next so that this isn't a problem again in the future?

Notice how the adult hands the problem back to the student but only AFTER genuine empathy is communicated.
Love and Logic expanded...
The premise is that students become self-disciplined and intrinsic problem solvers. When we support or mediate student thinking, student learn to think for themselves rather than expect the teacher to dictate resolutions.

Additionally, genuine empathy builds relationships between teacher and student. This empathy makes it so that you as the teacher respond to the behavior or choice, not the student. It is not a teacher vs. student environment, it is the teacher & student collaborating vs the issue/choice. This deescalates the situation because the student sees you as an ally rather than enemy.
Revisit the other slides to gain clarity and see if any of your posted questions can be answered, if time permits, feel free to access and watch any of these videos.
Note: the process and collaboration is equally or more important than the end product...
By the end of this center
you should be able to:

Explain the major components of Love and Logic with supporting details to show your depth of understanding.

Create and accurately respond to multiple scenarios by using one or more the components/principles of Love and Logic with a
response to the situation that demonstrates the appropriately applied model.
