Now I’ve got it. When people are talking about “logical consequences” half of the time they’re using it as a code-word. It means a child is illogical. We don’t trust him/her to perceive the natural consequences of an action (which can be more subtle, and of course are often both positive and negative). So, we beat them over the head with the consequence we want them to attend to. I’ve had it with this method, and I’ve had it with adults using “logic” to trump the kid’s own logic and will. Where I come from, we call dictating what it is. All hail the rise of natural consequences!
