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.

Tanya Boone-Alva, Cotati, CA

Happy Customer!!.

“I am proud to say we have two beautifully well behaved, respectful daughters who frequently comment on other adults’ poor parenting skills. Like my mother handed Dr. Spock down to me, (my Dad was the one who’d introduced 1-2-3 Magic when my eldest daughter was about 2…and seemingly incorrigible) I will be handing 1-2-3 Magic down to my girls.
