Good parenting comes in many forms, but there are some common techniques that work well for most people. Come learn about different parenting styles and how they impact your child.
Love and Logic is a philosophy that provides simple and practical techniques to help parents have less stress and more fun while raising responsible kids. Kristin will present a brief overview of a topic from the Love & Logic parenting program. Then there will be an opportunity for questions and parents to share and learn from one another.
