Want Your Kids to Behave? Take the 1-2-3 Magic Parenting Challenge


After 30 years in practice (and raising two kids of his own), clinical psychologist Dr. Thomas Phelan has seen every type of misbehavior imaginable.

His solution starts very simply by counting to three.

In his bestselling parenting guide, 1-2-3 Magic: Effective Discipline for Children 2-12, Phelan tackles the most frustrating parenting challenges, and shows moms and dads how to use his easy and effective counting technique to curb obnoxious behavior.

1-2-3 Magic includes:

 How to avoid the two biggest discipline mistakes parents make.

 How to use the counting method to control obnoxious behavior.

 Three guidelines for dealing with sibling rivalry.

 Six ways your children will test you and how to manage each.

 Seven ways to establish positive routines and behavior.

How to use the garbage bag method to get your kids to pick up their stuff.

 The basic bedtime method and how to handle kids who get out of bed.

  The Dirty Dozen—twelve mistaken parental expectations that cause the most trouble.

I received a copy of this book and found it to be very interesting and helpful. I like the counting method because it it also an easier way to remain calm. I highly recommend for all parents especially of younger children.
