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

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?
