Parents of young children often find that setting limits and boundaries can be a difficult challenge. When parents see new behaviors in their children, they might be unsure which is age appropriate and which needs more strategic parenting techniques. With all this going on, instead of raising children being a fun and rewarding part of life, it becomes exhausting and energy draining. Using techniques from Love and Logic®, parents can regain their energy and find that parenting can be a fun and rewarding part of life.
Love and Logic® is a parenting approach, created 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
"I am very excited to partner with the Orange Blossom Society and offer Love and Logic’s Early Childhood Parenting Made Fun!® As a Parent Coach I know how helpful it is for parents to have easy and effective techniques on the tip of their tongue for managing children’s misbehavior," Koenig says. "The Orange Blossom Society is a brilliant concept and perfect fit for this class."
"My ambition is to create an intimate space that is welcoming to families and good for community building," says Sharman Ghio, founder of Orange Blossom Society. "I am thrilled to have Leah Koenig offer classes in Love and Logic. This contributes to my goal of creating a community for parents to connect, grow and learn.”
Any parents in the community are welcome to attend. STARS credits are available for teachers. The Orange Blossom Society is located at 16715 NE 79th Street, Redmond, WA 98052. Questions about the class may be directed to Leah Koenig at 425-417-5902; or visit her website at www.myparentcoach.net.
