was introduced to "Love and Logic Parenting"
when his two sons were still toddlers. A friend
handed him a cassette of Jim Fay's classic
audiotape, "Helicopters, Drill Sergeants
and Consultants", and he was hooked!
Barry took the "Becoming a Love and Logic
Parent" workshop twice, and decided it
was too much fun to stop. They say "teach
what you want to learn", and he wanted
to be a good dad. Barry became a Certified
Instructor back in 1996, when Jim Fay was
still giving written tests to working facilitators
and collecting feedback forms from participants
to determine if a facilitator was doing a
good job. The company's gotten too large for
that now, so Barry gets to be one of "the
few, the proud, the certified".
received my Bachelor's degree from Clarkson
University, and is a registered land surveyor
and songwriter. Barry completed the school
of ministry and is the Youth Director at Mile
Hi Chuch. Barry is married, and my two boys
are fully grown. One of the first things he
remembers Jim Fay saying is still a favorite:
"There are only two kinds of kids; teenagers,
and those who are about to become teenagers".
That has turned out to be oh-so-true!
