A mom in one of the Love and Logic classes offered here wrote up this little example of how she'd been using what she'd been learning. Note: The skills she is using are
1.) an enforceable statement
2.) offering choices
Before church one morning, my kids were arguing so I used a Love and Logic technique and said, "Your arguing is hassling my ears. You can either take it elsewhere or pay me to listen to you. You decide."
She said they stopped.
