1-2-3 Magic, Effective Discipline for Children 2 - 12, provides a humorous look at parenting and a serious look at discipline. 

In this presentation, you'll learn how 1-2-3 Magic breaks down the task of parenting into three straightforward jobs:

  • Job #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.).
  • Job #2 Encouraging Good Behavior
    • Learn several effective methods to get your kids to START doing what you do what you do want them to do (picking up, eating, going to bed -- and staying there!, chores, etc.).
  • Job #3 Strengthening Your Relationships
    • Learn powerful techniques that reinforce the bond between you and your children.
