Classes teach how to avoid parenting traps

Parenting can be very difficult at times. Sometimes a child thinks the parent picks unfair consequences for the actions the child has made. The child feels as if he/she is getting treated unjustly. The Logan Family Information and Resource Center teaches a parent how to raise children and make them feel as if they are being treated fairly. The center teaches Love and Logic classes to help parents in raising their children. These classes help parents avoid getting stuck in “parent traps” where they need to spank, bribe, or yell at their children to try and solve their problem. These classes help parents find positive solutions to making both their child and them happy. Claudia Brilliant, the director of the family center, explains how to use other solutions to solve these issues. Brilliant says, one example might be when one of your children needs to clean his room. You tell this child clean your room and you can go to the park with the rest of your brothers and sisters at noon. If he cleans his room then he can go to the park. If he doesn’t clean his room, take the other children to the park. When this child asks why he can’t go to the park remind him he didn’t clean his room like he was supposed to. These Love and Logic classes are complimentary and they’re taught every Wednesday from 7-9 p.m. The January spots are almost full, however if people want to they can still sign up for February. There are one hour classes available to grandparents that can be set up for those who are interested. If an organization or club, such as a church, wants to set up a class they can. The center has several options. It teaches classes that focus on primarily one age group or all age groups at once, depending on the month. To register for the classes parents may call the family center at 435-755-5171.
