There is a common thread running through the fabric of all families: a wish to be able to enjoy each other as much of the time as possible. Cooperation Counts uses as its foundation, and with the author's generous permission, the counting clues portion from Dr. Thomas W. Phelan's groundbreaking book 1-2-3 Magic, Effective Discipline for Children 2-12, Fourth Edition, Parent Magic, Inc., 2010. Both programs assist families to get through tough parenting times minus criticism, hostility or anger.
The Cooperation Counts system uses simple steps to address not so simple scenes such as tantrums, aggression, rude talk, refusals, miserable moods, homework hassles, sibling circumstances, morning madness, bedtime blues, school situations and many other potential daily life disaster difficulties.
A TEACHER WRITES: Connecting home and school when the Cooperation Counts program is in place at home has resulted in dramatic positive changes in children's behaviors. For example, in one week's time, I saw an enormous turnaround in a four-year-old girl, who continued to maintain this growth for the entire school year. I highly recommend this program to families.

A FAMILY WRITES: The Cooperation Counts program helps everyone in the family to get on board and acts like a nice, solid rudder for the deep water parts of our family life journeys, and the best part is that we are all getting through the rough patches much more smoothly now !

A NEUROLOGIST WRITES: I am a pediatric neurologist who has turned to Jean Hamburg on numerous occasions to help me with some of my most challenging patients. Her passion, dedication and techniques have led to great success. I have often been able to avoid medicating patients when families use the Cooperation Counts methods. Patients of mine with behavioral issues who are on medication tend to do better with a combined medication and non-medication approach. Jean's behavioral plan and therapy is the non-medication approach I prefer the most.
