1-2-3 Magic! Parenting 2 to 12 Year Olds – Discipline that Works

[amazonify]1889140163[/amazonify]If your child has begun to rule the roost a bit more than you’d like, this book provides a system to get your family operating smoothly. Especially sensible is Phelan’s theory that children shouldn’t be argued with endlessly to convince them to do what you want them to do. He also wisely points out the best way to get your child to repeat unwanted behavior is to have a highly emotional reaction to it. The plan is simple, and though it’s not quite magic, it may feel like it is. — Susan K. Perry, Ph.D., L.A. Parent Magazine, September 1999
