I love it, I would like to see part two. My two year old is responding well but still finding difficult for punishment ecspecially while out and about or no time for time out as there is no allowance to remove from him. It has been a massive help for my five and seven year old step children. Just need to get their father on board, should try and use 1, 2, 3 magic on him, lol.
easy to understand
It is very helpful when dealing with a child's bad behaviour with out having to be aggressive. It is taking sometime to practise the technique but I believe it will work well. Regards Vincent
Fantastic product - give it a go!
Whilst this DVD is somewhat dated visually, the content remains relevant and it is delivered in a humorous way. I use the program with my son and I now feel that he is being parented by both parents in a much more consistent and fair way, than before we watched this DVD and implemented the 1-2-3 Magic system at home. Dr Phelan gives you structured tools to manage many different scenarios of difficult behaviour. He also teaches that in order for this system to work, as parents, we need to follow the two parental rules of "no talking" and "no emotion" when counting and giving a consequence, otherwise the program is undermined and I find this to be true. Give it a go, stick with it and you are very likely to see positive results, like I have seen with my son. Good luck ;)
the best at home child behavioural intervention program on the market
I had done the course some years ago, and as a result of current problems, have purchased this dvd along with more 1-2-3 magic. this one is a fantastic plethera of information, ideas and answers to help dad's and mum's develope a behavioural intervention plan for the children. this helps the kids form a great strategy in managing their behaviour and allows the parent to better control tantrums and bad behaviour as well. After a couple of weeks, you can see how it works and how better you can manage your kids. They too understand their limmits and boundaries, making this dvd a priceless item as far as i'm concerned. Being a single father looking after 3 kids under 10, 2 of which are in the autism spectrum, I can't thank Dr Phelan enough for this program. As ASD kids require constant structure and routine, this is a great tool to manage their moods, behaviour and their understanding of boundaries. Once you've got it under contol, I did within 2 weeks, as soon as you say "ONE", they stop and listen. I have been doing this now for 7 yrs with all my kids - very rarely will i ever get to 3. more often its 1. Of course its going to take alot of time and patience at first, but once you see the results. its all worth itRead full review
