First United Methodist Church in Grapevine will be hosting a 6-week Love and Logic seminar starting Wednesday, January 11. Love and Logic is proven curriculum that is known for providing positive parenting solutions & educational resources for healthy family relationships. According to the Love and Logic Fact Sheet, children learn the best lessons when they're given a task and allowed to make their own choices (and fail) when the cost of failure is still small. Children's failures must be coupled with love and empathy from their parents and teachers. This practical and straightforward philosophy is backed with 30 years of experience. Parents can apply it immediately to a wide range of situations, instead of struggling with difficult counseling procedures. Love and Logic uses humor, hope, and empathy to build up the adult/child relationship; emphasizes respect and dignity for both children and adults; provides real limits in a loving way; and teaches consequences and healthy decision-making.
FUMC Grapevine believes that teaching Love and Logic will be beneficial for the growth and faith development of families in our community. This seminar is open to all adults who interact with children - parents, grandparents, educators, etc. Classes will be held on Wednesdays, starting January 11, 6:15-7:45 PM in Room 2001 of FUMC Grapevine. The seminar will be taught bilingually (English/Spanish) by Hortencia Ibanez Loya. Hortencia has been a Community Liaison and a trainer for Parent Universities and Staff Development in Dallas ISD. She has trained other Community Liaisons and taught Love and Logic to parents in both English and Spanish speaking communities. She has been training parents for the past 12 years. The cost is $15 for the book, plus $4 suggested donation for a light snack supper provided each week.
