RELATIONSHIP CLASSES

Parenting the Love and Logic Way

Mark Pope is a well respected teacher at Hillcrest Junior High School.  He has been using Love and Logic principles in his classes and his home for nearly 20 years.  He became an independent Love and Logic facilitator 18 years ago.  His presentations are timely, humorous, elevating and energetic.

Love and Logic does not claim to be successful in all situations and with all children, however, there are so many battles which we as parents fight which need not occur.  In addition, there are so many conflicts which can be directed in a “love and Logic” manner, allowing parent-child relationships to remain healthy and productive. This course will focus on parents with children in the home (all ages); but is also effective for grand parenting.
Love and Logic is not a wimpy parenting style which allows children to “walk over” their parents or “get by” without boundaries or consequences.  Love and Logic holds children accountable but is done in a non-controlling, non demanding, non-manipulative way. Each parent will learn useful skills in dealing with the toddler, the grade-schooler, the teenager, and the adult child who has not figured out how to leave home and go out on their own.
You are invited to come learn, laugh, and join an incredible journey with Mark Pope.
(This course is open to all parents, regardless of whether or not they live in Murray, City).
