Reviews - What do customers think about Love and Logic Magic: When Kids Leave You Speechless?
Partially great Sep 11, 2008
This book was recommended to me by a counselor, and I found much of it very very useful. It was great for providing simple rules for maintaining control, not only of your child but also of your own self when dealing with children. The only issue I have with the book is the portions dealing with the "uh oh" response. Creating and then triggering a fear response in your child when the parent says "uh oh, this is draining my energy", struck me as borderline abusive. It actually triggered a response in me when I read it, and there is just no way I'll subject my child to that. Of course, that's a very personal view, and in general I found the book helpful.
Fantastic! Feb 7, 2007
Any parent (or teacher) will appreciate the responses Jim gives. Everything Love and Logic puts out is excellent, but this is something you can pick up in an emergency and find specific answers right away. An important resource for anyone who deals with modern-day kids. I loved it.
An invaluable resource for raising responsible kids. Aug 18, 2006
It is so nice to have concrete things to say when your kids come up with something you never thought of (which they invariably do). I love this whole series!
Excellent resource for "simply" solving common childhood bahaviors May 26, 2006
This book is excellent and loaded with common sense solutions for everyday behavior problems (and they work). I just took a Love & Logic class at our local YMCA and there wasn't anything "heavy handed" in the teaching materials we received or the videos of the authors we watched. A heavy dose of empathy is always used with their methods i.e the "love" part of love & logic.
Definately worth the money! May 9, 2006
As a parent and a school counselor I highly recommend this book and all the resources from Love and Logic! They are excellent tools for parents and teachers. In case you are turned off by the thought that they might be a Christian organization - They are not, nor do their books promote or discuss anything related to Christianity.
