Leah Koenig, MA, Child & Family Therapist and Parent Coach, Announces a Special Love and Logic® Early Childhood Parenting Made Fun!® Class in North Bend Washington

Bellevue, WA, March 30, 2010 --(PR.com)-- Leah Koenig, MA, Child & Family therapist and Parent Coach announces a special two day Love and Logic® class in North Bend WA. "Early Childhood Parenting Made Fun!®" for birth to age six. The class is co-facilitated by Marlon Familton, marriage therapist at Collaborative Couples and Family Counseling, LLC in Bellevue WA.

This special class will be presented at Mountain View Montessori School in North Bend WA over two Saturdays: April 17th and May 1st, 2010 from 9:00am to 1:30pm. Cost for both Saturdays is $75 for an individual and $130 for a couple.

Parents who struggle with misbehavior often fall back to what they learned: lecturing, threatening or being pulled in to arguments with their little ones. Unfortunately it rarely works. Love and Logic® is a parenting approach created in 1977 to help parents learn how to set limits in loving ways using logical consequences. 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, helping parents find tools to manage misbehavior, I find that Love and Logic® preserves relationships and leaves them feeling better about being a parent. “Koenig says. “The best part is that Love and Logic is easy to learn and yet highly effective. Best of all, it makes parenting fun.”

“Couples who come to me struggling with their relationship are often finding difficulty around raising the children. What they each learned in their families isn't working.” Familton says. "Love and Logic is a chance for a couple to spend time together, work on a project together, and focus on creating a shared vision for their family. ”

Any parents in the community are welcome, as are teachers who wish to receive STARS credits for attending. Mountain View Montessori School is located at 248 Main Ave South, North Bend, WA 98045.
