    Skyway Garden Needs Families for Gardening and Harvesting

    Summertime is here! After a chilly spring, things are growing and blooming in the Skyway Garden. We are looking for families who are interested in helping out a week at the garden. Your family can weed, water, smell and eat the tasty fruits and veggies that are ready to be harvested! Bring them home to your family or donate them to the food bank. We just want you to enjoy the garden, get your hands dirty and connect with each other.

    To sign up for a week or two of tending to the garden, go to Sign Up for Skyway School Garden.

Ideas For Families

  • Are You Preparing Kids for a World that Doesn’t Exist?


    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.
