Book Description

Oct. 1 2010 123 Magic

This revised edition of the award-winning 1-2-3 Magic program addresses the difficult task of child discipline with humor, keen insight, and proven experience. The technique offers a foolproof method of disciplining children ages two through 12 without arguing, yelling, or spanking. By means of three easy-to-follow steps, parents learn to manage troublesome behavior, encourage good behavior, and strengthen the parent-child relationship—avoiding the "Talk-Persuade-Argue-Yell-Hit" syndrome which frustrates so many parents. Ten strategies for building a child’s self-esteem and the six types of testing and manipulation a parent can expect from the child are discussed, as well as tips on how to prevent homework arguments, make mealtimes more enjoyable, conduct effective family meetings, and encourage children to start doing their household chores. New advice about kids and technology and new illustrations bring this essential parenting companion completely up-to-date.

I had heard many people refer to such a technique, but none were really having any surprising results. I learned that they are ''winging it'' rather than using knowledge and a proven technique. I decided to follow the guidance ''to the letter'' and found it to be magical.

Within one month, my relationship with my kids has gone from painful to fantastic! The transformation is almost hard to believe.

I haven't even finished reading it but already started using some of the methods and I'm already seeing an improvement in our toddler's behaviour. Can't wait to read the section on Eating supper!
