Leaders: Tracey Sorenson & Steve Siegele

Do you want to raise the odds that your children will be more responsible, you will have more fun with them and enjoy a less stressful family life? If so, we are excited to offer Parenting the Love and Logic Way™ to our Menomonie community.
These 4 class sessions are for parents, grandparents, teachers, or anyone who interacts with children or teens. In this class you will develop strong parenting techniques and strategies to raise happy and well-behaved kids with positive, loving tools. The Love and Logic approach to parenting is built around the science of crafting caring and respectful relationships. An authentic, loving connection between parents and their children is the root of a healthy, thriving relationship built on trust and understanding.
You will learn how to
- Avoid un-winnable power-struggles and arguments
- Stay calm when their kids do incredibly upsetting things
- Set enforceable limits
- Avoid enabling and begin empowering
- Help their kids learn from mistakes rather than repeating them
- Raise kids who are family members rather than dictators
- And much more!
