This book changed the life of my entire family What an amazing and SUPER EASY program I started seeing immediate results and no longer felt the need to sell my oldest child to the gypsies I ve been using this program now for 10 years and know it works I had a child that used to keep me in tears and within a week of starting this program people started to notice and ask questions His behavior changed drastically and he s now a respectful and hard working teenager I m still using the program on my [...]
Did not read the Christian version, but the regular version has really made a huge impact on my views as a parent and my reactions towards my son in just a few days Would highly recommend this to parents who don t want to yell or spank but still get the kids to listen Straight to the point, and easy to follow A gem for me
Final piece to the parenting puzzle, between Love and Logic, Scream Free Parenting, and Magic 1 2 3, our days are so much peaceful and enjoyable The hard part is staying consistent with the No Emotions Rule and No Talking Not all kids will admit to liking be disciplined, but my six year old did say that if it s between yelling or that s one, she wants a that s one.
Actually, it does feel like magic I think this is a pretty great disciple book for the fearsome fours I screwed up and wrote this review for the Christian version I read the the secular version, where Jesus is not involved in discipline decisions for my kid.
This book shows how to discipline effectively, to spend less time disciplining and time on affection, fun, praise, and listening The goal is to to get along with and enjoy your kids, instead of fighting them It explains alternatives to lecturing, which is generally ineffective, and to spanking, which is often just a parental temper tantrum It s written from a Christian perspective, but any parent can use it.My wife and I read this because we ve been trying to find an effective discipline metho [...]
Best parenting book ever.
So far, it seems to be working I could go back to the second part and learn how to encourage good behavior and not just punish bad , but I m happy with the results thus far.
Fantastic book and method This is the best thing I have tried as a parent It is easy to do and learn but hard to be consistent on But that s not the programs problem that s my problem.The method removes a parent s emotion and long boring lectures to the children that they zone out on after you say Why can t you understandblah blah blah blah blah As parent we assume that the kids will rationalize as we do, but we are wrong The are not little adults they are crazy, emotional, impressionable kids w [...]
I read the original 1 2 3 Magic edition of this book, but couldn t find it on so selected this Christian Parents edition, which I hope to read as well But I LOVED this book Best parenting book I ve ever read Only wish I read it 13 years ago after the birth of my first child I still have two toddlers left to raise, and this method is already transforming our household I m forcing my husband to read it too right now This book gives answers to all those questions parents have been asking themselves [...]
This book has been a lifesaver I started reading it as soon as we got into the terrible two s phase Phelan presents a 3 part strategy stopping inappropriate behavior, motivational techniques for what he calls start behavior getting your child to do the things you want him her to do , and relationship building ideas to help parents truly enjoy their children In short, Phelan has hit a home run No child is perfect, and no parent is perfect, but after implementation of the methods in this book my [...]
This book has some great ideas I ve already started using them and feel a big difference I don t feel so overwhelmed and like things are so out of control with the kids I just go right to counting them It is hard sometimes to follow through but I am hoping it will be worth it I find myself not wanting to get to that 3 and have to enforce a consequence, especially with my 3 year old But I am going to keep going We ll see how it goes.I loved the author s thoughts on technology over use I disagreed [...]
Great book and great discipline tactic for parents I have read most of this version and have listened to the version not specifically geared toward Christians there is little difference in technique or tactic between the two versions I will say that the method is by no means easy to master It requires dedications, consistency, and self discipline However, we have seen marked improvement in the behavior of both of our children since beginning this discipline method We ve been at it for about 6 mo [...]
Great book This is the method I intend to use to discipline my daughter Essentially Phlelan teaches that if your children misbehave, you should turn them into donkeys ala Pinocchio Sorry about my bad jokes Rather, you give them a 1 2 3 count, and after the three strikes, they go into timeout Phelan has all sorts of strategies for dealing with the off the wall scenarios that arise for the modern parent For the curious, he s opposed to spanking I don t expect I ll spank Kay Mostly because I have s [...]
My copy doesn t say for Christian Parents I m not clear why that is now part of the title of this book I found the strategy of discipline that Phelan describes has helpful My granddaughter has pushed me to 3 a few times, but usually we resolve behaviors when I say 1 I refer to the book often to refresh my memory when I hit a new developmental age Great reference
Ugh I didn t like this book at all I picked it up after seeing a user comment on an Attachment Parenting site This is not for people into attachment parentingThe version I read did not have a sub title about Christianity and I was turned off when I saw that title here on the site While I imagine this approach does work, I am looking for something different for disciplining my daughter.
The version I read was just 123 Magic, Effective Disciple for Children 2 12 I like parenting books with specific instruction and examples, even if I only cherry pick which techniques I end up using The key idea in this book as the lack of emotion and bargaining in discipline, which I think is really key It s going to be an uphill battle implementing this with Ruthie since she hates being counted at and time outs, but I think it will help if I stick with it
Some good information and hints about discipline I did not read the section on the Junior High ages We are dealing with a very stubborn three year old great grandson I needed all the help I can get I picked this book up at a Little Library located near the Catholic Elementary School in our town That part was fun I will be keeping this book to refer to as threenager progresses Hahaha
My mother in law actually bought this book for me Probably because she has seen my four year old in action This book was different that of lot of the parenting books out there Believe me I have read quite a few of them Like any parenting book I think you have to take what works for you and leave the rest The ideas in this book really worked for our four year old I recommend it to those of you that are frustrated with your children.
I have not put this into play yet but I like the theory of it It is similar to what I already do, just structured I also think it will be something my husband can stick with because it is pretty basic I think I will combine it with another tactic I have been using and see what happens I am looking forward to getting started with this and I hope for good results.
This book has some amazing lessons and lots of examples Not just examples of what to do but also what not to do It does feel very black and white so if you are one to get offended this book may put you off For me, I am opened minded and was able to take a lot from it We use 1 2 3 at home with all three children one autistic and see a huge difference when implementing this in its entirety.
I listened to the audio version and no religion is mentioned for those of you who aren t interested in that aspect Very easy idea and I am excited to implement this with our kids.Just realized I entered the wrong book There is one that is not specific to Christian parents and that is the one I listened to.
I also read the original version but couldn t find it on here Definitely the best thing I have tried as a parent It works well for my twins and my son with special needs I see myself often going back to review things if I get rusty.
Good book about how to discipline children Plus, I loved the Christian spin in this edition Basically the rules are no emotion, no talking Easier said than done, but works when you do it that way.
Wonderful parenting book for young children If you have babies read this now I used this technique up until my girls were about 5 years old I had to switch gears after that stageParenting without Power struggles is my go to now.
An amazingly simple way to give children positive routine and reinforce pour bond I enjoyed the course and book It is very American but I loved the approach Well worth a read if you work with children.
I agreed with the methods here a lot than the parenting with love and logic strategy Counting and time outs have worked well for our 2 year old although I have yet to figure out the best approach to use when we aren t home Great book
This book was very helpful in understanding what I personally need to do as a parent I believe the counting method will work for my son I am excited to see what the results will be and to start having a wonderful relationship with my kids.
So fargic is happening.This has been great especially with my negotiator son I don t have to explain and lectureblah blah blahwho cares I just give him a 1 and we can call it good Great book I recommend this with any children that have a problem being annoying sometimes.
Could the title be any ridiculous But that is my biggest complaint The content was surprisingly simple I read it in one sitting The method has been working really well for us too Very helpful parenting book Lots of examples.
I think this book is just what I need, though I think it will take me some time to be really good at it I can t say how Canon is doing with it yet, since we just barely started, but even if it does not work, the book taught me a lot.
