Come and learn the basics of Love and Logic or refresh your skills if you have already taken the classes! Everyone is welcome! Great time to meet your spouse for a lunch date and “get on the same page” with parenting your kids.

From 12:00–1:00 p.m. on Tuesdays, join us for lunch and to learn the principles of Love and Logic through videos and table discussions.  The sessions are in a relaxed style so feel free to come and go as you need to. If you are unable to commit to all 12 weeks, that is OK!
