Discipline: 1-2-3 Magic

in Tips For Parents

We found this book and video to be enormously helpful:

1-2-3magicbookBook: 1-2-3 Magic: Effective Discipline for Children 2-12 by Thomas W. Phelan
DVD: 1-2-3 Magic: Managing Difficult Behavior in Children 2-12 by Thomas W. Phelan

The video explains how to do this program the correct way — and the real kid/mom scenes are super helpful! (and hilarious too)

Initially the method was hit-or-miss for us (mostly miss) as James’ transition skills were still so “stuck” that he couldn’t make himself stop the activity, even if he knew the timeout would happen for noncompliance.

His compliance really improved after these interventions.
