What is Love and Logic?

Since 1977, the Love and Logic Institute has been dedicated to making parenting and co-parenting fun and rewarding, instead of stressful and chaotic. Love and Logic provides practical tools and techniques that help adults achieve respectful, healthy relationships with their children and co-parent and helps them prepare their kids for the real world. All of our work is based on a psychologically sound parenting and teaching philosophy called Love and Logic.

Why is One-On-One the Key?

Every family circumstance is unique, so why should your training be typical?  In working with Melissa, you will not only learn the proven principles and techniques of Love and Logic, you will also work to apply them directly to your personal situation and relationships. Together you will set the priorities of your training and work each week on a set of skills that you’ll apply in your home. Each week you’ll add new skills to your parenting and communication tool-kit and practice them in your home. Practice Makes Permanent!
