Dr. Phelan offers no-nonsense advice for those of us struggling to find ways to discipline our children that don't involve spanking.

Step 1: Controlling Obnoxious Behavior: Learn an amazingly simple technique to get the kids to STOP doing what you don't want them to do (whining, arguing, tantrums, sibling rivalry, etc.)

Step 2: Encouraging Good Behavior: Learn several effective methods to get your kids to START doing what you want them to do (cleaning rooms, picking up, going to bed, homework, etc.).

Step 3: Strengthening Your Relationship: Learn four powerful techniques that reinforce the bond between you and your children.

This is no (as my dad would say) "mamby-pamby" book filled with cliches and sentimentalities. This is good, solid advice that actually WORKS! Within 24 hours, my home was already more peaceful. 6 months later, my three children still aren't little angels, but they are much better behaved and our home is SO much more peaceful without the cycle of Talk-Persuade-Argue-Yell-Hit Syndrome (as Dr. Phelan calls it).

If you think you've tried everything, and your kids still aren't behaving the way you'd like, I HIGHLY recommend 1-2-3 Magic! What have you got to lose but the time spent reading?

I think this book is great! We've started using the techniques with our 2 year old and we've already seen a big improvement in his behavior.
