Love and Logic Tips

Spooky Duke Race 2017

  • For each choice give two options, each of which are ok with you. For example, "Do you want to do your chores now or in fifteen minutes?"
  • Give choices before your child gets resistant. If you give them afterwards, you reward resistance. 
  • For each choice, give them no longer than 10 seconds to choose.
  • If they don't choose, or they choose an option you didn't provide, choose for them.
  • Only give choices that fit your value system.
  • Give 99% of your choices when things are going well.
  • When things aren't going well, say, "You've been getting to make a lot of choices around here. Now it's my turn."
