Come and learn the basics of Love and Logic or refresh your skills if you have already taken the classes! It’s a great time to meet your significant other 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 some new parenting techniques 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!
