Teaching with Love and Logic: Taking Control of the Classroom” by Jim Fay and David Funk

Teaching with Love and Logic by Jim Fay and David FunkIf you’ve ever felt stressed by class­room man­age­ment, you need this book… Teach­ing with Love and Logic: Tak­ing Con­trol of the Class­room by Jim Fay and David Funk. It may sound corny to say that this book could change your life, but it very well might!

When I first started out as a new teacher, I felt woe­fully unpre­pared in the area of class­room man­age­ment. My cre­den­tial pro­gram had pre­pared me for a lot of things, but class­room man­age­ment wasn’t one of them! So when I dis­cov­ered this book, I felt like I had struck gold!

As a par­ent of young chil­dren, I had already read the book Par­ent­ing with Love and Logic by Fos­ter Cline and Jim Fay, and attended an inspir­ing week­end work­shop taught by Fos­ter Cline him­self. I’m not exag­ger­at­ing when I say that this method of relat­ing to chil­dren changed my life! The basic premise here is that chil­dren will learn respon­si­bil­ity when you offer sim­ple choices and allow the log­i­cal con­se­quences of those choices to play out, with empa­thy and love.

My own chil­dren are now both suc­cess­ful young adults, so I speak from expe­ri­ence when I say that these prac­ti­cal par­ent­ing tech­niques work! It took so much of the stress out of par­ent­ing and read­ied my kids to make wise choices in the real world. And these strate­gies work equally well in the classroom!

The Love and Logic method is for teach­ers, par­ents, grand­par­ents, and any­one who works with kids. You’ll find your­self spend­ing more time teach­ing and less time dis­ci­plin­ing.… and enjoy­ing the kids a lot more! Read Teach­ing with Love and Logic: Tak­ing Con­trol of the Class­room by Jim Fay and David Funk and reduce your stress level next school year!

      I saw Jim Fay speak at a con­fer­ence years ago and it was life chang­ing. I didn’t know about this book for teach­ers. Thanks!
