I found some of the ideas helpful. The overall theme of love and logic is what I'm trying to incorporate into my parenting. I agree with the idea that if you do something right as a parent, you find yourself doing it less, but if you give in or go the lazy route you find yourself repeating it over and over.

Excellent. I've just listened to this on audio cd. I have checked it out at the library
several times and keep it in my car for review. He really does a great job of outlining
ways to handle your kids that work. Most of the time it's just a little tweak to your
way of thinking or to the words you say, but it really works. I'm a fan of parenting
with love and logic and this one is a great little reminder for everyday interaction with
your kids.

These concepts just make sooooo much sense. I wished I had been parented more with Love and Logic and I hope to do a better a job parenting myself using these no brainer concepts. Why is it that I have to have every senario drawn out for me to get it?

I like to read some of the love and logic books every now and then as my kids' needs change. Although he has a lot of great ideas that would help a lot of people, I didn't really find anything I'd use from this since my kids already willingly do their jobs and I liked my own methods better.
