Clear, Applicable, Easy

I felt like I needed to write my own appraisal of Teaching With Love and Logic in order to offer an opposing opinion to those opinions written by two other reviewers. One reviewer said this book was repetitive. This is true, but for an important reason: There are only a few basic Love and Logic® principles! What Teaching With Love and Logic does is take these few principles and show the reader how to apply them in various situations, differing environments and with a range of grade levels. Another reviewer said that this book is overwhelming. The principles of L & L are simple to understand and even easier to apply. Teaching With Love and Logic will help teachers become stress-free and find more time and energy to focus on effective and rigorous teaching. Can you imagine a classroom full of responsible, productive, and happy students who are in control of their own behavior? It is possible! Love and Logic® works! You can have fun teaching again! Becoming a Love and Logic® teacher is the best thing you can do for yourself and for your students. Teaching With Love and Logic is a powerful resource for any teacher. Check out the other Love and Logic® books, too!

reduces the stress level for you AND your students

Did lthomros read the same book the rest of us read? It actually takes more time & effort from the teacher to use Love and Logic, but it is worth it! LOGICAL consequences presented in LOVING manner helps the child maintain his/her dignity.. it's how most of us would prefer to be treated!Below, I've taken some statements from the book. If you agree with this philosophy, you will love the book. It works for all ages. This method helps teachers to avoid POWER STRUGGLES with kids and teenagers.The Three Rules of Love & Logic1) People Learn from Their Own Decisions2) Use Enforceable Limits--Provide Choices Within Limits3) Apply Consequences with EmpathyThe Love & Logic techniques:-Put teachers back in control of the classroom-Result in students who are internalized in their discipline rather than dependent upon external controls (THEY do the thinking!)-Raise the level of student responsibility-Prepare students to function effectively in a world filled with temptations, decisions, and consequencesIn conjunction with reading this book, I also took part in workshops about Love and Logic that were offered at my school. The book itself, however, is easy to read and offers lots of examples and practical suggestions.

New teachers: This could be your best buy!

I'm in my second year of teaching fifth grade, and have been using L-and-L for about a year. I can't believe it wasn't in my college curriculum because of how simple, rational, and effective the approach is to using. You'll have more success and more fun disciplining your students than you will following any of the more-traditional methods you probably saw used when you were a student. You won't be burdened as heavily with frustrations due to power struggles and unsuccessful punishments. You should also feel pretty good about how this approach builds kids up by empowering them with choices. Furthermore, you don't have to attend a long seminar to make it work. I might sound like I've been paid to write this (and I haven't!), but it's the best buy you can make, and it's an easy, enjoyable read.

An easy and sensible approach to discipline that works!

The beginning part of this book outlines the philosophy of Love and Logic in the classroom. It is presented clearly and logically. The next part deals with a step by step method of implementing in within your own classroom. The final couple chapters are written by teachers/principals who have taken this philosopy of respect and dignity into whole schools. They explain what they did and what the effects were. I have tried this approach in my own classroom and at home with my own kids (Imagine getting kids to do their chores without threats!). The results are startling! Compliance without power struggles; respect without demands; control by giving away control. You will be stunned at how easily it works, how much better of a teacher you will be, and how your kids will respond. (I even have used this when dealing with my colleagues. What fun!)It is not new; it is common sense brought to the front. It is definitely do-able! We are just beginning to adopt this approach schoolwide. I am excited to see how it works. I recommend this book highly to anyone who is frustrated and exhausted from "dealing with students and their mouths" at the end of the day!

Anyone who deals with children should read this book!!

As a teacher, I have read many books looking for ways to run my classroom and discipline my students. When I read this book, I instantly had ideas to use in my classroom. All of them have worked! It has changed my philosophy on discipline for the better. I no longer have a lot of the problems I used to and when one does arise, I don't get angry and frustrated! I'm no longer exhausted at the end of every day. I really believe I am a better teacher because I deal with my students in a respectful way but yet I am teaching them responsibility. After you read this book, you will be so excited to go into your classroom and try some of the techniques!
