Parent Tips from Love & Logic Magic When Kids Leave You Speechless by Charles Fay

  1. Children feel better about themselves when they have firm yet loving limits, some age-appropriate chores to do at home, and have to struggle and not be rescued when they face consequences.
  2. When children try to argue with you, "go brain dead" and repeat "I love you too much to argue."
  3. Emphasize what you will do in a time-limited way. For example," You need to pick up your toys now. If some are left out, I will pick them up and put them in my closet for today. That way no one will trip on them." Use a businesslike voice so you are not letting the child gain control by seeing you upset.
