On our latest Let’s Talk podcast, Episode 6: Let’s Talk About Parenting with Love and Logic, Jen DiMatteo, Program Coordinator at Family Services, and Cassandra Doran from Provident Financial Consulting joined Amanda and Karlene for a talk about providing discipline while maintaining a strong relationship with our kids and helping to guide them in making good financial choices now and in the future.
A strong relationship with honesty and trust is a goal in parenting, and sometimes the need for correction can hinder or stall growth in the relationship. So what are some of the ways that Parenting with Love and Logic can help us to make meaningful interventions and grow that relationship? Jen DiMatteo had some insights to share! We were so lucky to have Cassandra’s insight about another important parenting point, helping set kids up for financial success.

About Love & Logic
What Is Love and Logic All About?
The Love and Logic Institute is dedicated to making parenting and teaching fun and rewarding instead of stressful and chaotic. We provide practical tools and techniques that help adults achieve respectful, healthy relationships with their children. All of our work is based on psychologically sound parenting and teaching, whole-child philosophy called Love and Logic.
What Is Love and Logic?
Children learn the best lessons when they’re given a task and are allowed to make their own choices (and fail) when the cost of failure is still small. Children’s failures must be coupled with their parents’ and teachers’ love and empathy.
This practical, research-based philosophy is backed with over 45 years of experience. Parents can apply it immediately to a wide range of situations instead of struggling with difficult counseling procedures.
Why Does It Work?
- Uses humor, hope, and empathy to build up the adult/child relationship
- Emphasizes respect and dignity for both children and adults
- Provides real limits in a loving way
- Teaches consequences and healthy decision-making
