Air Quality

Hello Boundary County.  Our thoughts and prayers are with those still dealing with the effects of wildfires. The administrators at our schools have been monitoring the air quality to determine when the air is unsafe for practice. The district uses the Department of Environmental Quality website to monitor air quality.  Every coach has been given guidelines for acceptable activity levels during a wildfire smoke event. When the air quality is designated "red" we cannot practice outside or have outside sporting events.  For more information on air quality see http://airquality.deq.idaho.gov/.

Trusted for over 35 years


Love and Logic is a philosophy founded in 1977 by Jim Fay and Foster W. Cline, M.D. It is the approach of choice among leading educators, parents, and other professionals worldwide.

The Love and Logic Institute is dedicated to making parenting and teaching fun and rewarding, instead of stressful and chaotic. We provide practical tools and techniques that help adults achieve respectful, healthy relationships with their children. All of our work is based on a psychologically sound parenting and teaching philosophy called Love and Logic®

Parenting Skills - Develop Good Parenting Skills with Love & Logic

Positive, loving tools for raising happy and well-behaved kids
Built around the science of caring, respectful relationships

Never before in history have parents faced so many challenges!  That’s why the Love and Logic approach provides a variety of simple and effective strategies for parenting children birth to adulthood.

We specialize in solutions to challenges ranging from:
Toddler tantrums… to teen driving

Potty training… to their posts on Facebook

Refusing to eat peas….to refusing to do anything

Step-parenting, special needs and much, much more!

The “Love” in Love and Logic means that we love our kids so much that we are willing to set and enforce limits.  This “Love” also means that we do so with sincere compassion and empathy.

The “Logic” in Love and Logic happens when we allow children to make decisions, make affordable mistakes and experience the natural or logical consequences.  When we balance this with sincere empathy, they develop the following logic:

The quality of my life depends on the quality of my choices.

With the loving yet powerful tools of Love and Logic, we can help our children learn to make good choices and experience happy lives while maintaining their love and respect.
