What Parents Say About My Classes...
"The most important thing Love and Logic did was help to dissolve the anger I was feeling towards my four-year old. His behavior was sending me through the roof and it gave me tools to remain calm and not escalate the situation.
His behavior has, not surprisingly, improved, and I feel much better about myself as a parent.
Just saying "Oh, sweetie" to my two-year old triggers an immediate improvement in his behavior
and the "uh-oh song" has enabled me to stay calm with him as well.
Thank you for making my home a more peaceful place!"
~Karen F., parent of preschool and elementary children
"I found this class to be very worthwhile, educational and fun! It’s never too late!!
I now communicate much better with my teens. The class helped pave the way for a less stressful,
more strategic and proven approach to parenting teens and young adults."
~ Dory Albert, mother of teen boys and a college-age daughter
“I have read a stack of parenting books, but it wasn’t until I came across the Love and Logic philosophy of raising
and teaching children that I started repeating to friends what I was learning. There’s something about this philosophy that is sinking in, and I think it’s this simple approach: ‘Love allows children to grow through their mistakes,
and logic allows children to live with the consequences of their choices. “
~ S. Woodburn, parent of teenager and preteen
“Love & Logic gives parents an easy to follow format for directing kids toward positive behavior especially during the teenage years when they are intelligent enough to outwit you. The parenting techniques are based on empathy and collaboration to achieve results that lead to positive consequences. I now look forward to conflicts as an opportunity to improve my parenting skills and to help my children learn about the consequence of their actions.
Mary was an amazing facilitator. She gave us great examples based on her own experiences with raising two boys and feedback on current parenting issues we are struggling with at home. I would highly recommend Love n’ Logic to any parent, grandparent or educator seeking to improve their relationship with teenagers.”
~ M. Vogel, parent of teen, preteen and elementary children
“Love & Logic has given my husband and me wonderful techniques that have made parenting
less of a power struggle and more enjoyable for both of us. Turning my son’s problems back to him,
instead of owning them myself, has freed me up to give him the empathy, love, guidance, and responsibility he needs and deserves, and to better prepare him to make good decisions when my husband and I are not there.”
~ Dawn H.
"Love and Logic is an enjoyable way to learn practical skills to parent our teens.
The videos are informative and the breakout sessions provide valuable opportunities to practice what we've learned. It's reassuring to spend time with other parents who are having similar challenges with their teens and
to share our successes as well as our struggles. It's a joy to discover that we are not alone in our journey!"
~ Chris Z., father of teenager and pre-teen
"Mary's Parenting with Love and Logic class positively changed our home in so many ways!!!
My husband has yet to attend, but he could see positive impact immediately (happy Mama => happy family).
Less stress and tension over unmade beds, dirty socks, chores, grades, schedules.
More joy in interacting, playing and growing together. We have also picked up the
L&L for Lasting Relationships book - yes, the parenting principles and techniques
apply to all our adult relationships. Life changing - thank you Mary!!!"
~ Sarah O., parent of elementary through high school children
"For any parent or educator considering Mary's Love & Logic classes, I can speak for my husband and myself
about how much better parenting is in our home. I am often amazed when I use a technique how much easier
the situation resolves itself compared to the past. As with all skills practice is needed and I like to revisit the tapes
and/or books. Working together with my husband has helped as well. “Brain-dead”, “Uh-Oh” and putting the problem back in the child's hands are some of my favorites! Thank you Mary, Charles, and Jim!!!"
~ D. Lee, parent of preschool and elementary age children
"Love and Logic is a wonderfully practical and applicable course. It makes sense and it really works.
My 11-year old responds to the principles of Love and Logic readily and has already grown so much.
My husband and I are so pleased. What a joy to see our child solve his own problems and feel good about it.
We can also see the pride he takes in being a contributor to the family community.
Mary is an outstanding teacher and she takes genuine pleasure when we share our son's experiences.
She's also always available for questions and welcomes them.
We've felt so supported. I've recommended this course to several friends. We loved it."
~ Alison I., parent of elementary age boy
"I loved Mary's Love and Logic parenting series. The video/discussion format worked great
for both my husband and me. We learned how to deal with our kids' bad behavior without the
normal anger or yelling. I love that Love and Logic is a philosophy that works for all ages and stages.
I am confident that my parenting skills are much better because I took this class."
~ Sue B., parent of elementary age boys
"Love & Logic class is an eye opening class for me.
How can the logic works behind our unconditional love as a parent with our child?
It works amazing, when I see the results. Nothing will work unless I show empathy,
I am still working on it because I used to be a screamer helicopter mom.
I wish I had taken the class much earlier.
Thank you Mary."
~ Mrs. Sarkar, mother of teen boy and pre-teen girl
"I really enjoyed the Love and Logic class taught by Mary Eschen. Learning the love and logic philosophy
from Mary has definitely helped me become a more effective, positive, and loving parent. I really enjoyed
collaborating with other parents and sharing experiences on how to deal with certain parenting situations.
Through the love and logic curriculum Mary provided many practical strategies to parent in such a way that children develop the self confidence to deal with life's challenges and problems. One of the main things I learned is to give
my child love and empathy in facing problems, but to avoid taking ownership of her problems and solving them for her.
There were also some very helpful tips in dealing with children that nag , argue, and misbehave when they don’t get what they want.
I would definitely recommend Mary’s Love and Logic class to anyone that wants to become a more effective parent while
creating a loving environment where their children can thrive and grow into motivated and responsible young adults."
~Amit Roy, father of pre-teen girl
