Summary Toronto Hospital for Sick Children Study

"A major and statistically significant improvement in the children's behavior and a large drop in parental stress, depression and hostility."

People often ask if 1-2-3 Magic is supported by research of this kind. The answer is Yes. Recently one of Toronto's biggest hospitals, the Hospital for Sick Children, completed a large, controlled study which looked at 220 families in which the parents were trained (using the 1-2-3 video) to use 1-2-3 Magic with their 3- and 4-year-old children. The well-designed, randomized study was conducted in cooperation with ten social service agencies around the Toronto area.
