Disciplining a child can be a challenge but the insightful and user-friendly guide, "1-2-3 Magic: Effective Discipline for Children 2-12" provides parents and guardians with a helpful manual. In this updated version, author Thomas W. Phelan, Ph.D. gives parents an easy-to-follow set of three steps to master behavioral techniques. A variety of tips are given to help parents teach their children right from wrong, manners, study habits, polite social behavior, and so much more.

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.
