Both Mary Ann Kluga, RN, MPS, LCDC, Leander ISD’s chemical abuse prevention program (CAPP) coordinator, and Sarah Romer, LPC, LMFTA, CAPP counselor are facilitating the new “Parenting the Love and Logic Way®” course during the fall of 2016.

The six-week program is designed to help parents nurture responsible, respectful, fun to be around children who will learn how to make their own choices, own their problems, think critically and logically for themselves, while parents let empathy and consequences do the teaching. The course is appropriate for parents with any aged child and any situation: home, school or even work. The instructional approach includes discussions, video clips presented by the facilitator, workbook exercises and homework to practice the “new” skills presented at each class. You do not need to have a child in Leander ISD to attend. Any one is welcome. If you can’t make these classes, we will be offering them again in the spring (dates TBD).

Classes are held from 10 a.m. – 12 pm. or 6 – 8 p.m. with makeup classes 45 minutes prior to the next class (9:15 a.m. or 5:45 p.m.). North District classes will be held at Vista Ridge High School (200 S. Vista Ridge Blvd. in Cedar Park) Oct. 11, 18 and 25 and Nov. 1, 8 and 15. South District classes will be held at Four Points Middle School (9700 McNeil Dr. in Austin) Sept. 22 and 29 and Oct. 6, 13, 20 and 27.

The cost is $35 per individual and $55 per couple if materials are shared. If you have taken the “Becoming a Love and Logic Parent®” course previously at LISD, the revised workbook is available for $10. Scholarships are available. Child care is not available.

Kluga will offer a FREE “An Introduction to Love and Logic” class Oct. 4 from 6-7 p.m. at Vista Ridge HS in the lecture hall.
