Book Review-1-2-3 Magic:Effective Discipline for Children 2-12

Here’s what Mom Fuse “Mommy Reviewer” Dore, from Dore’s Diaries, had to say about 1-2-3 Magic: Effective Discipline for Children 2-12 by Thomas W. Phelan Ph.D

1-2-3 Magic

Recently, I was given the opportunity to review 1-2-3 Magic: Effective Discipline for children 2-12. Dr. Thomas W. Phelan has come up with a super effective parenting strategy that works like magic!!

The book covers the counting method and also has 3 simple steps to get your children behaving the way you want.


Step 1: Control Obnoxious Behavior. Learn a simple technique to get your kids to STOP doing what you don‘t want them to do (whining, arguing, tantrums, sibling rivalry, etc.).

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

Step 3: Strengthen Relationships. Learn four powerful techniques that reinforce your bond with your children.

1-2-3 Magic has really helped me out with Brayden. He isn’t quite 2 yet, so I wasn’t sure how effective it would be. So far, it is working out great.

I’m kind of ashamed to admit it, but I’m not the best at disciplining Brayden. He listens to EVERYONE so much better than he does me. If I try to correct him, he looks at me and laughs. Although I hate that he doesn’t listen to me, I’m glad to know he isn’t afraid of me… I want him to know I love him and I will always be there for him, but I also want him to understand that I’m his mom and I’m the adult and he has to respect me.

1-2-3 Magic is the answer to my prayers. Brayden is slowly understanding that mommy means business! I can’t wait until he gets a little older and I am able to fully implement this simple program. I’ll have him in tip-top shape in no time!!
