In their book Parenting with Love and Logic, 1 Foster Cline, MD, and Jim Fay outline a parenting strategy that has found a national audience. While Love and Logic might appear child-centered, the focus is really on parents and providing them with the tools they need to survive raising children and preparing them to be successful in the world once they leave home. Compare and contrast parenting and leadership styles and consider the author's experience with adapting some parenting styles to the workplace.
