No democracy can survive without a self-disciplined population. Preserving our democratic way of life requires that we teach our youngsters the true meaning of patriotism: "There is no freedom without responsibility."
For more than 25 years, the Love and Logic Institute has been devoted to giving parents effective, easy-to-learn tips for raising kids who can think for themselves and make wise decisions, even when no adults are watching.
We believe parents can raise responsible, self-disciplined kids, enjoy a happier family, and strengthen our great nation at the same time. Start teaching the value of self-discipline to your kids today by following these tips:
Tip 1: Model self-discipline by thinking out loud
"I sure would like to go faster, but I better stick to the speed limit."
Tip 2: Give your kids a small taste of democracy at home
"Would you like apple juice or grape juice?"
Tip 3: Allow your children to make plenty of "affordable" mistakes
Tip 4: Lock-in self-discipline with the "Empathy + Consequence" formula
One parent we know commented, "Love and Logic saved my son's life. Instead of getting in a car with a bunch of kids who'd been drinking, he decided to stay home. The next day, we learned about the crash. One of his best friends died that night."
Don't wait until it's too late! Get started with Love and Logic and join the thousands of parents who are raising more responsible kids, building happier families, and strengthening our nation.
