After reading this book I also read More 1-2-3 Magic by the same author. I also viewed the DVD and purchased 1-2-3 Magic for Children and read it to my granddaughter. She asked over and over for us to read this to her and I feel this program will be helpful to control her behavior. One of her parents does not discipline her and this is a real problem. This is a great program for parents and grandparents to use and to eliminate bad behavior.

This book really helped us with our daughter who is very bright. We also shared some key pages with her grandmothers who help us take care of her from time to time. She has shown alot of improvements, but consistency is key. Parents have to agree on what are the instant 3's and how to handle when not at home.

This book has put discipline into perspective. It is very easy to read and it makes total sense. Very helpful!

I'm a teacher and a parent, and 1-2-3 Magic is useful as both! I bought the book to learn about the program in the classroom, but could only find the parent version. Luckily, the book is easy to read and adapt to situations other than those discussed in the book. The author provides many examples and explains everything in "layman's" terms. I was afraid it would read like a textbook, but thankfully I was wrong!
