Managing Difficult Behavior

Managing Difficult Behavior

When your child is upset, anxious or angry, keeping your cool is half the battle. It’s a way for you to put out the fire by throwing water on the flames, rather than fan it by adding more fuel from your own emotional tank. 1-2-3 Magic helps parents manage difficult child behavior by providing solutions that help reduce emotional stress, make better decisions, and not respond with a knee-jerk reaction when your child pushes your buttons.

    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.

  4. More 1-2-3 Magic DVD: Encouraging Good Behavior (English/Spanish)

    $39.95 As low as: $34.99

    I found the DVD version of 1-2-3 Magic, and my son and I watched it together…he was 3½ at this point and ruled the house. The first few days using 1-2-3 Magic seemed worse because he did not like that I was actually sticking to my threats. Then after two weeks I felt like an entirely new child has emerged!!!“ — B. F. Mason


    In addition to controlling difficult behavior, parents need to know how to encourage good behavior so they can enjoy their children and relate to them with warmth and affection.
