Bellevue, WA, October 27, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Leah Koenig, MA, Child & Family therapist and Parent Coach at Collaborative Couples and Family Counseling, LLC in Bellevue WA is presenting the five week Love and Logic® class, "Early Childhood Parenting Made Fun!®" for birth to age six, at Sammamish Montessori School in Redmond WA starting November 5, 2009. Classes will be each Thursday from 6:30pm to 8:30pm and cost $75 for an individual and $130 for a couple.
Often parents find that lecturing, arguing or threatening their kids does not work and in fact, only make dynamics at home worse. Love and Logic® is a parenting approach, started in 1977, that helps parents learn to set limits with their children in loving ways and thus creates happy families and responsible kids. Ms. Koenig will cover:
-Handling misbehavior without breaking a sweat
-Teaching kids to listen the first time
-Avoiding power struggles
-Limits for happier parents and happier kids
-What to do when your kids leave you speechless
"As a child and family therapist and parent coach, Love and Logic® is a powerful tool I used to help restructure family dynamics. It is easy to learn, easy to apply and quite effective when used consistently." Koenig says. "Love and Logic® also emphasizes that parents should take care of themselves to model stability for the children. I find this to be a critical aspect of the work I do with families."
Any parents in the community are welcome to attend. Sammamish Montessori School is located at 7655 178th Place NE, Redmond, WA 98052. Questions about the class may be directed to Collaborative Couples & Family Counseling, LLC at 425-296-0944.
