Reading this book with our kids does a better job than us explaining the regular 1-2-3 Magic book. We purchased both and found the Kids book was easier and made it part of our books at bedtime that we read. One chapter per night was best for us.

As a mental health provider, I believe this can be a great way to train parents to really teach their children the 123 way. I love the section where it addresses how they might get around the system and cuts them off from the start.

Where to set the rules, where to draw the line, these are questions any and all parent constantly ask themselves. "1-2-3 Magic for Kids: Helping Your Children Understand the New Rules" is a practical and 'user friendly' guide for parents and their children in setting up a discipline and incentive program that works for everyone around them. Aiming for a more harmonic atmosphere around the home, and increasing the love between children and their parents, "1-2-3 Magic for Kids" is highly recommended for all parents who are unsure of what to do or what to say when their children fail to listen.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
When all else fails, this is the book and method to rely on. Very easy to learn and apply instantly for parents and kids. It is unique in that it is designed to be a child's book as well as a parent resource. I read together with my 3yr old and discussed the pics and text, he was interested in the dynamic between the 2 girls in the story and asked to read it for several nights. He was excited that he was a part of the solution and that he had a responsibility as did I as a parent. This book helps illustrate that responsibility and makes it come to life. It is not designed to rid your family of problems all together rather a calm way to handle problem situations as they arise and allow both kids and parents to exercise self control in the heat of the moment. Worthwhile in every aspect!! Try it and you will see a difference in yourself and your kids!!

I purchased 123 Magic for Kids 2 to 12 and I thought this would be a great companion to the book. My son is 4 years-old and I think I will use the book when my son turn 5 because I think the book was written for older children. I'm glad that I purchased and look forward to using it in the future.

This book is wonderful for helping parents explain the new "rules" to children. It is told in a story book fashion that children can easily relate to. It was really a blessing to have. We've read it a few times and our son loves it. He reminds me if I deviate from the structure in the book!

This book is quite simplistic. This discipline program works well in the home but also in the classroom. It has made a remarkable difference in student behavior. The biggest key is consistancy. You need to be very prepared to keep using this effective plan for the long term. Be prepared for backsliding if you don't follow through in a consistant manner.Very effective in aleviating power struggles.

I have a 5, 6, and 8 year old and we all read the book together. They begged me each night to read more. And now they ask me to tell other parents too. Great book for kids and parents!
