ICCP – Idaho Child Care Assistance
The Idaho Child Care Program (ICCP) provides child care assistance to low-income, working families by paying for a portion of child care. This program is for parents who work, attend school, or participate in approved activities to help prevent children from being placed in foster care. The program pays for part of the child care costs for eligible households, and parents also pay for a portion (called a co-pay). The parent’s share is based on the size of the family and the amount of their income.
Love and Logic Parenting
This is an approach to raising kids that provides loving support from parents while at the same time expecting kids to be respectful and responsible. This program is known as Parenting with Love and Logic, a philosophy founded by Jim Fay and Foster W. Cline, M.D., and based on the experience of a combined total of over 75 years working with and raising kids.Jim Fay teaches us that we should “lock in our empathy, love, and understanding” prior to telling kids what the consequences of their actions will be. The parenting course Becoming a Love and Logic Parent teaches parents how to hold their kids accountable in this special way. This Love and Logic method causes the child to see their parent as the “good guy” and the child’s poor decision as the “bad guy.” You can learn more about Love and Logic by contacting the Cline/Fay Love and Logic Institute, Inc. in Golden, Colorado. The toll-free number is 1-800-338-4065.
