7 Love and Logic Helps Educators… Set classroom limits without angerProvide hope and willingness when it gets toughRaise odds for students to stay in schoolManage and immediately handle disruptive studentsBuild positive relationshipsHelp students own and solve their own problems
8 This Works Because…When adults take care of themselves, students are forced to handle their problemsWhen students have to solve a problem they have to thinkWhen students have to think they have to learn that decisions have consequencesWhen dealing with consequences they have to learn to thinkWhen we allow students to deal with consequences they have to learn to think before causing a problemWhen students learn to ask themselves “How is my behavior going to affect me?” They have learned self control.
