1-2-3 Magic is so remarkably simple and effective that parents can begin using it immediately with astounding results. In the seminar parents will learn three straightforward steps:

  • Controlling obnoxious behavior
  • Encouraging good behavior
  • Strengthening your relationships with your children

Parents will learn the two most important rules they need to follow while disciplining young kids: No Talking and No Emotion.  The seminar also provides specific instructions for dealing with the most common parenting landmines: tantrums, bedtime issues, nighttime waking, sibling rivalry, homework, misbehavior in public and the six kinds of testing and manipulation.
