Love and Logic

This is quick hello to tell you how excited I am about this book I just read. My sister gave it to me for Mother’s day, it’s about parenting. I love all the teachings it has. It talks about how we can share control with our kids, help them to think and prepare them for the real world so they can be a great person to be around with! It gives lots of real examples so it’s easy to understand. I really recommend it! We’ll start applying it as soon as Derek reads it too, he’s also excited cause I’ve been telling him about it.

Here are some samples of the ideas it offers:

With Love and Logic, your children will learn how to live with the consequences of their actions, avoid blaming others for their problems, and make wise decisions.

Love allows children to grow through their mistakes.
Logic happens when we allow them to live with the consequences of their choices.

When people ask, “When can we start using Love and Logic with our children?” we say, “Start when they’re babies.” Sometimes we even add, “Start when they’re cute, so they will stay that way!”

I still have more things to share… I really started this post last week and didn’t finish it and then Adrian got sick and we couldn’t continue with regular life. He had a fever and he got one of his febrile seizures, we had to call 911 again cause it lasted long, I think about 4 minutes. It took him long to recuperate cause he wasn’t drinking much water during the day but he made it ok and now he’s back to normal. This thing doesn’t stop making us scared and nervous but every time it happens we feel more prepared just in case it ever happens again (hopefully not!). I just have to say it’s very very scary when it happens but it’s supposedly not harmful and it’s the body’s way to fight the fever. I had them when I was a kid and now I’m fine so that’s what I look up to! Anyways, I’ll be back with some more positive stories about our life with Adrian this week!

This was after he felt better and was eating something!

I love this picture, his hair looks so curly after putting some wet towels on!

    Con respecto al libro, voy a ordenarlo, siempre es bueno tener más bases para educar a tus hijos.
    Por otro lado que susto con lo de Adrían, yo la verdad no se lo que haria en un caso xomo ese, ojala no se vuelva a repetir.

    Que chévere Caro! Me tendrás que contar como te va cuando lo empiezes a usar!! Yo ya echaré mis cuentos también!

    A Adrián le mandaron exámenes de su cabecita para asegurarnos que todo esté bien y que de verdad sean convulsiones febriles y no otra cosa. Besos!
