Who is in charge a your house? The hardest thing in the world is being a good parent. My mother always said ” You know you are doing something right when it seems hard, that means you care.” Doesn’t it feel hard most of the time? I always joke with my mom by saying, “Well mom, I guess we are doing a darn good job!” Our son Cohen had the best preschool teachers in the world and they introduced the parents to this amazing book called “1-2-3 Magic” by: Thomas W. Phelan, Ph.D.
The three steps are:
Controlling Obnoxious Behavior
Encourage Good Behavior
Strengthening Your Relationship
Guess what? it works! Our son gave us the amazing terrible three’s. My husband Anthony and I were so frustrated. Just getting him dressed or go to the bathroom was a struggle. I read this book and really enjoyed it. I didn’t really know if it would work but I was willing to give it a try. The very first time I tried the technique for discipline it worked. I was so SHOCKED! That is why they call it magic. I encourage anyone who is having a hard time finding a way that works on disciple, encouragement and a better relationship to read this book. Raising well behaved and honest kids is hard work but in the end, so worth it.
So, are you ready to be wowed and amazed on how well your kids are listening?
