Review Of The Love And Logic Parenting Book By Lisa Nichols

love and logic parenting book

If you want to understand what love and logic parenting is all about, then this book will teach you everything you need to know. It is written by Desiree Easter, a licensed social worker with four decades of experience dealing with troubled teens. She has authored numerous books on parenting, including Love & Logic Parenting Guide and How to Raise Self-Confident, Motivated Children. This parenting book shows you exactly how you can raise well-behaved, self-reliant kids who are ready to take on the real world. Learn how to effectively parent efficiently while instilling self-confidence in your kids and building their character at the same time.

Easter starts off the book with a foreword written by John Bowlby, an internationally recognized child psychologist. He emphasizes the importance of love and its importance to a healthy parent/child relationship. According to Bowlby, love is a “quick fix.” It will not solve your problems or make up for bad behavior. However, love is a powerful vehicle for getting your kids to the places they need to go-and that is where the good behaviors come in.

Learn About Loving Actions


Next, you’ll learn that loving actions are a lot more effective than being abusive or demanding. Easter maintains that most parents focus on every negative thing that happens in the household, such as tantrums or violence. While it is important to call your child’s attention when he starts acting out, it is equally important to use love to quiet the noise and calm him down. You can do that by simply being there when he needs you. When a parent does these things consistently, it establishes trust and faith in his children and teaches them to trust others and themselves.

The last part of the book covers some basic principles of parenting, including scheduling and prioritizing chores, taking turns with different children, setting limits, and giving rewards. While it is important to set these up as a system, the book also encourages parents to go out of their way to make sure the system works for each family member. For example, if one child has a hard time sitting still, the parent might take a break from playing with him and teach him to relax his body. It’s a small gesture, but it can change a child’s life. Parents will learn valuable skills by using the Love and Logic Parenting Book.

Pros Of The Love And Logic Parenting Book 

A cup of coffee on a table

One of the things that impressed me about this book is that it does not promote one single way of parenting. Rather, it encourages parents to think about how they can enhance their parenting style and approach in light of their individual family circumstances. For instance, one parent might learn to give praise and encouragement when their child succeeds at something. Another parent might take an attitude of total failure when their child gets hurt or makes an inappropriate move.

Also, this book offers significant practical advice. Rather than focusing on the theory that the child is responsible for his own behavior, this book teaches that it is important for parents to be able to control their reactions to their children. They must be able to control themselves and still love and care for their children. This way, they are less likely to have negative or hostile reactions when their children behave badly.

Contain Amazing Topics 

Another thing I like about this book is that it doesn’t make parents feel helpless. Rather, it gives parents a variety of strategies for improving their parenting skills. Rather than feel like they are fighting a losing battle, they’ll learn new ways to win. These include some simple suggestions like setting realistic goals and working to keep your cool. However, the book goes much further and even provides extensive research on other areas such as motivation, parental communication, and even looks at some parenting styles that are considered questionable.


Overall, Love and Logic Parenting Book are a very helpful text for any parent wanting to improve their parenting skills. Rather than focusing on the theory that all children are capable of improving their behavior and are just having a difficult time doing so, this book takes a more practical approach. It focuses on providing actual advice on improving the behavior and attitude of children. It is written by a professional who has spent a considerable amount of time working with parents of different temperaments and circumstances and has put together his own unique set of strategies.
