“Becoming a Love and Logic Parent” NEW CURRICULUM program in Menahga


Although kids can bring much joy, laughter and fulfillment into our lives, they can also be confusing, bewildering and downright frustrating at times.  This often causes parents to wish their kids had been born with an instruction manual dangling from their necks!


Love and Logic is fun to learn and easy to use and you don’t have to be a therapist for it to work. Anyone can begin using love and logic almost immediately and the materials are designed to make learning these special techniques a highly entertaining experience.  In addition to being funny, heartwarming and lovable, the stories used in the Love and Logic materials are all true and very instructive.  You will enjoy listening to them over and over, sometimes just for the entertainment value, but always to help become the best parent, grandparent or teacher that you can be. The Love and Logic method will help you raise responsible, happy and well adjusted kids.


The two rules of Love and Logic are Rule #1: Adults set limits without anger, lectures, threats or repeated warnings.  Rule#2: When children cause problems, adults hand these problems back in living ways.  These two rules are taught in many ways to use with youth in a fun and exciting manner.  The five week program is highly recommended for anyone who cares about our youth and can work very well for educators in the school and day care providers.


The program will include NEW CURRICULUM and will be held on Tuesday nights beginning October 13, 20 and 27 and November 10 and 17 from 6-8 p.m. Child care is available.  The cost is only $15 per couple/person.  The value of this program is well over $100 per person-the information received is priceless.  You will receive a manual to take home with you.  CEU’s are available for teachers and day care providers.  The program is promoted and financially supported by the Wadena County Family Service Collaborative.  Don’t miss this opportunity!  Call Vickie Paurus at 837-5474 or the Menahga School at 5644141-ext. 330 to sign up today!

About Our School

The Menahga Public Schools consists of three schools under one roof. The building is a Pre K-12 facility with classrooms, labs, gymnasiums, and other study areas. The schools are connected and many of our older students work as teacher's assistants and help the younger students creating a beneficial learning environment for all.

In an age of financial uncertainty, our district maintains a secure funding which allows us to keep classroom sizes small and maintain both core educational programs and extra curricular activities at little or no cost to our families.

Our school now houses just under 1000 students school wide within the three schools. The buildings are connected making a unique community of students working with each other to achieve their academic goals.

Menahga focuses on the importance of educating our youth with a well-rounded curriculum to provide them with the life long skills needed in today's changing world and for their future. As society changes, we adjust our curriculum to meet the needs of students moving forward in their lives.
