How early in a child’s life can we start using Love and Logic?
The 4 Basic Process of Love and Logic:
1: Hope For Misbehavior
Mistakes made early in life have far more affordable consequences than those made later.
2: Sing an Empathetic “Uh Oh”
The fewer words we use when our kids are acting up, the more successful we will be.
3: Provide a Loving Consequence
There are only three basic consequences that exist for small children:
- Change your location by walking away and paying no attention to them.
- Take away Change the location of the problem object by taking it away.
- Carrying the child and changing the location to their room, buckling them into their stroller, etc.
4: Repeat as Needed
When parents repeat this basic process with great consistency, they find that they only get to the second step most of the time. Quickly, their tots learn that “Uh Oh” means that it’s wise to act sweet!
