Regal Run/Walk is a family event to kick off the school year! It will be held on Saturday, September 29th. Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. and the race begins at 9:00 a.m. Families create teams including parents, siblings, extended family, neighbors, and friends. Teams name themselves and dress the part (optional). We will have a small prize for the 2 most creatively dressed teams! The 1.18 mile run begins at the Skyway parking lot and ends in the gym. The course will take your team through Blue Grass Park and back. There are 8 checkpoints where your team must check in. Each Skyway Student will receive a colored Popsicle stick that corresponds to the 8 checkpoints. At the completion of the race each Skyway Student who hands in all 8 colored sticks, will receive a finisher’s ribbon.
Get your team together and register on race day!

Is it really okay to hold kids accountable for their misbehavior… or is this an archaic concept that no longer applies to raise kids? We at Love and Love have always taught the same thing: Hope and pray for affordable mistakes, provide a strong and sincere dose of loving empathy, and let logical or natural consequences do the teaching.
We provide unconditional love, dignity, and opportunities to make small mistakes. That’s the “love” in Love and Logic. The “logic” develops inside the child’s heart and mind when they discover that the quality of one’s choices largely determines the quality of one’s life.
Do choices matter?
Over the past few years, a strangely popular “no-consequences” movement has developed among many. They seem to argue that if we just do a better job of loving kids and meeting their underlying emotional needs, there will be no need for consequences. They also suggest that using consequences… even reasonable ones delivered with great love… is a big no-no.
Have you heard this, as well?
There’s some truth in what they say. Yes! Loving kids, building trusting relationships, and meeting needs is essential… and it does tend to cut down on the need for consequences. The downside of their rather extreme position is that the world is a consequential place.
It’s pay now or pay later.
We can either help our kids learn that choices matter when they are young and the consequences are small, or we can allow the world to teach this lesson when they are older and the consequences are often tragic.
Are we going to prepare our kids for a world that doesn’t exist… or the real one?
Thanks for reading! Our goal is to help as many families as possible.
