Love and Logic
  • Avery Elementary School has implemented the Love

    behavior plan that promotes student
    responsibility in which problems will be handled
    on a case-by-case manner, focusing on the unique
    characteristics of each situation. We believe
    that all children are different and situations
    are handled as they arise. Our focus is to

    students that
  • Teaches kids to think for themselves
  • Raises the level of student responsibility
  • Prepares kids to function effectively in a
    society filled with temptations, decisions, and

Love and Logic (Contd)
  • Within the Love and Logic approach, a fundamental
    question concerning students is Do I want to
    control kids or do I want to obtain their
    cooperation? As we want to obtain their
    cooperation, student misbehavior will be handled
    as follows
  • If a student causes a problem, we will do
    something about it.
  • 1. If a student causes a problem, we will ask
    him/her to solve that problem.
  • 2. If the student cant or will not fix the
    problem, we will do something.
  • 3. What we do will depend on the unique
    individual and the unique situation.
