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.

We tried the 123 Magic discipline strategy for our foster son at the suggestion of his caseworker and therapist. We felt that it was easy to follow and understand, even for a six year old! It is a quick way to stop unwanted behavior and was helpful for us as parents to cut the emotion out of the equation. I would recommend giving it a read as it is quick to get through and implement. So, if it turns out to not work for you, there is little time wasted.

Absolutely the worst book on disciplining imaginable. The book teaches you to train your children like dogs, and not like little people looking for an adult to guide them as they discover their place in this world. This book is a guide for anyone who wants to be that nasty parent, whose kids grow up resenting their parents. Also the author has this distorted perspective on siblings. As opposed to viewing siblings as an essential unit that completes a family structure, his view on siblings is as if they are meant to be your kids arch enemies. I did read the entire book though with an open mind, hoping I will be able to take something away from it, and very disappointingly not one of the author's ideas resonated with my style of parenting. I would recommend:
Mommy rescue guide, The no-cry discipline solution and If I have to tell you one more time.
