Item description for The Pearls of Love and Logic for Parents and Teachers by Charles Fay, Jim Fay & Foster W. Cline...
The book presents practical solutions to common classroom problems. Perspectives in the book touch on social interactions between students and teachers, the psychology of power struggles, and standards of behavior. Many of the shared stories are common ground between the authors and the reader. This book serves the teacher well. With educators as the target readers, Fay and Funk's book encourages teachers to try the 'Love and Logic' approach. For the seasoned teachers who find that the passion of teaching has been eroded away by the ever-changing dynamics of student populations this book is a must. For aspiring educators, this book would serve as a fundamental tool to hold dear through decades to come. Fay and Funk's ideas are fundamental to teaching--changes in time, structure, and students do not alter the messages in this book. The book is a tool that in its first reading presents a fresh outlook for teaching. Consecutive readings hone the teachers' skills to establish the environment needed for educators to educate and students to learn.

Clear, Concise & Extremely Valuable! Apr 6, 2008
This book was an easy read for folks who want to do the best they can by their kids, but don't have a lot of time to devote to lengthy reads. The stories were all two pages maximum and had such wonderful common sense advice, it will make you wonder why you didn't think of it yourself! I highly recommend this book written by two loving men who truly care about what they share with us. This book isn't just for parents and teachers, it equally applies to grandparents and other family members and anyone who deals with children day to day. The fact that kids learn best from making their own mistakes is undeniable, the truth that it's far easier to make the mistakes when young as opposed to when the stakes are greatly multiplied as adults, is one worth great consideration! A profound and influential book that has already begun to affect my family and how we relate to each other. Thanks to the authors for this!
I love this book and all Love and Logic books Jan 1, 2008
Lots of good short stories and ways to do things the Love and Logic way. I love it, very helpfull, and short enough that you can read one or two here and there and understand how to apply it. Would and do recommend this book to anyone with kids.
Thank goodness for Love & Logic!! Jul 24, 2007
I have several books of this ilk and wish I had stumbled onto it years ago! After having raised my own kids, I'm raising two grandsons (ages 10 & 7). This philosophy of Love & Logic and Positive Parenting has changed night into day!! And it's so true, the more control you can give away, the more control you gain. At times, it feels as if the boys and I are roommates because it's so much easier this way! And they're so well-behaved!
I recommend it to everyone who will listen and have given Love & Logic to a friend.
Great Parenting Resource Jan 11, 2007
I just LOVE this book. I really can't say enough about it. It is very quick reading, and each "lesson/story" is only a page or 2 long - so it's really easy to find the time to read. This is a must have for any parent or teacher who wants effective discipline strategies that really work!
Worth it's weight in gold! 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.
