Love and Logic Conversation #1: “What is a parent’s job?”

My husband and I have been going through a course at church called Parenting With Love and Logic. It has opened up so many new opportunities to teach our children, but it can be really hard.

This was the beginning of my conversation with my 9yo, after I “helped” her by taking the toys and other stuff she couldn’t seem to put away.

Me: “what do you think my job is, as your parent?”
Her: “to take care of me…”
Me: “no, that’s not really my job at all.”
Her: (shocked expression)
Me: “my job is to teach you to take care of yourself.”

Woah…

    Can I just say what a relief to find someone who actually knows what theyre talking about on the internet. You definitely know how to bring an issue to light and make it important. More people need to read this and understand this side of the story. I cant believe youre not more popular because you definitely have the gift.
