Love & Logic for Parents of School-Aged Children

This course is designed to empower parents of school-aged children to balance their households to avoid the push and tug of the parent/child relationship. Learning how to discipline with love and logic so that consequences become growing experiences, rather than punitive, self-defeating guilt-inducing negative family experiences will be the goal of this session. Embedding the 5 to Thrive Strategies of Chattanooga Basics, families will leave with the goal of maximizing love while minimizing stress. In addition, families will get some tips on how to create a One-Year Plan to help their child be successful in school.

Are you ready for some practical ideas for raising responsible children who feel great about themselves – children who are responsible and ready to live in the real world? Are you ready to feel empowered and confident in leading a home that is filled with calmness and positivity? Are you ready to get started?

This course is for you!
