Dh and I are signed up to attend the Love and Logic Seminar on Sunday. I am actually surprised my dh didn't balk on going. I told dh that we both need to go in with an open mind and be willing to change our parenting style. I am tired of the yelling, threatening, etc. I want peace in my house. I take full responbility that I, like Luke, get frustrated and angry. I have told dh, why do we expect Luke not to get angry with us when he is being punished since we can't be calm and level-headed. We have taught him this reaction, buy our reactions. I have looked through their website and read several of the articles. I am inspired to change my ways. I am excited about this seminar. I am tired of my dh's drill sargeant mentality and I am tired of my helicopter and drill sargeant parenting. I don't want to discipline my child the way I was disciplined by my stepfather. I don't want to crush Luke's self-esteem or self-worth.
