1-2-3 Magic: Effective Discipline for Children 2-12, 4th Edition by Thomas W. Phelan

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.

The is good an d I plan on trying out the 123 magic however I felt it didnt have enough examples and directives for parents of toddlers and preschooler. I think that age range needs special attention.

This book is hepful in some ways but it doesnt help my situation. My son is so angry and these techniques dont help him. They are great for my younger son but it doesnt tell you what to do when they wont stay in their room.

I have read it and am headed to get a paper copy for my husband and the grandparent. Phelan has a healthy sense of humor and clear instructions that seem completely doable. I see where I have been aggravating the discipline situation for my three girls and am already benefiting from that alone. We will implement his recommendations when my husband has seen the video/read the book - not soon enough!
