Family Life Education Content Areas
The National Council on Family Relations provides this document highlighting the ten specific content areas that are covered through their certification of Family Life Educators. While I have training and experience in all of these areas, my passions lie in exploring and teaching:
- Internal Dynamics of Families
- Human Growth and Development across the Lifespan – particularly social and emotional development
- Interpersonal Relationships
- Parent Education and Guidance
I love to tailor my classes to fit the needs of my audiences! Should you have specific needs or topics you would like addressed please contact me and I can create custom curricula around the needs of your organization, school, or clientele!
Parenting the Love and Logic Way
As a part of my Parent Education and Guidance I teach Love and Logic classes to parents of children of all ages.
A bit about Love and Logic…
Develop Strong Parenting Techniques and Strategies
Raise happy and well-behaved kids with positive, loving tools
The Love and Logic approach to parenting is built around the science of crafting caring and respectful relationships. An authentic, loving connection between parents and their children is the root of a healthy, thriving relationship built on trust and understanding.
Sounds easy enough but never before in history have parents been faced with so many challenges! Our approach provides a variety of simple and effective strategies for parenting children from birth to adulthood. Whether you’re embarking for the first time with your new baby or navigating the turbulent teens with your youngest, our strategies and techniques will help you create calm and loving solutions.
The “Love” in Love and Logic means that we love our kids so much that we are willing to set and enforce limits. This “Love” also means that we do so with sincere compassion and empathy.
The “Logic” in Love and Logic happens when we allow children to make decisions, affordable mistakes and experience the natural or logical consequences. When we balance this with sincere empathy, they develop the following logic:
The quality of my life depends on the quality of my choices.
With the loving yet powerful tools of Love and Logic, we can help our children learn to make good choices and experience happy lives while maintaining their love and respect.
