1-2-3 Magic Ask the Expert: Tips for Staying Calm With Your Children

January 20, 2017 2536 Views No comments

Question of the Week:

We have a 5 year old girl and an 8 year old boy. We've been trying to do 1-2-3 Magic for many months. My wife and I have a hard time staying patient, and especially after telling the kids the same thing several times over, we find ourselves raising our voices. I know that we are basically having a tantrum ourselves and that it's counterproductive, but we still struggle. Can you offer any tips to help stay calm even when you're tired and frustrated?

Do you have a question about the 1-2-3 Magic program, or a challenge you've not been able to resolve?

Ask your question now, and watch for your video here and on the 1-2-3 Magic Facebook.

Three Tips to Stop Tantrums and Meltdowns

July 18, 2016 15116 Views No comments

You're in your least favorite aisle of the grocery store: Aisle 5. That's the candy aisle. Your four-year-old daughter is screaming at you full blast because she's very upset that you would not allow her to have the candy bar she had sweetly pointed out. She's stuck in the cart, but you're sure she can be heard all throughout the store. It feels like a crowd is slowly gathering to see how you're going to handle the situation.

Does this situation sound familiar? Of all the behavioral problems parents face from their children, temper tantrums are probably the most upsetting as well as the hardest to manage. Major meltdowns may also be the most potent tool kids have when it comes to training their parents to do what the children want.

Kids' meltdowns often produce a painful feeling of temporary insanity in parents. This awful feeling, in turn, can produce horrible screaming matches and sometimes even physical abuse.
