    1-2-3 Magic saved my marriage and my sanity.

    “I have three boys, ages 2, 4 and 8. 1-2-3 Magic saved my marriage and my sanity. I bought the book and the video last fall. As a result, I am proud to say that even when I am completely exhausted from disciplining all three of them all day (yes, I count, yes I am consistent and yes, I am still exhausted), I know in my heart that I have climbed the highest parenting mountain and succeeded without getting a migraine, spanking, yelling or screaming at them. I really feel like I am on top of the world, and I have you to thank.
