My husband and I took a Love & Logic parenting class when our twins were 17 months old and our older daughter was 12. It was offered for free by the local school district. We both learned a lot and we found ourselves discussing things we had never thought about. We decided to give the technique a try, and since we were both on board it was a lot easier to stick to it (kind of like dieting with a buddy instead of going it alone). It worked great with all 3 of our children, and now the kids are getting pretty much the same response whether they are with me or with their dad. Also, now when my husband handles a situation I'm not left thinking, "that's not how I would have done it." It has been a great experience for my whole family. I highly recommend it. Sign yourselves up and GO!
We did have to get a babysitter to attend, but it was still worth it...plus it was the closest to a date we'd had since the twins!

One more thing - L&L worked so well for us that my husband tells people about it all the time. When he sees other people with misbehaving children he always tells me he knows how to "fix" that, and he would gladly tell the parents if they asked.
