Has anyone used 1-2-3 magic??

My inlaws are saying that my son misbehaves badly so they sent me this program called 1-2-3 magic.. Have you ever used it and what was your childs reaction did it work?
or was it a waste of time?
I just don't want to get into something that will not work or have had negitive reactions/responces..
Any help would be great!!
Thanks so much

  • I've only heard good about it. I haven't tried it, but a friend of mine who had very difficult children (boy and girl) used it and her pediatrician had recommended it. (In fact, they keep a copy at the doctor's office) I read the book a few years ago, but it doesn't stand out mainly because much of it repeated what I read elsewhere about positive discipline. Try it - definitely NOT a waste of time.

  • I read the book and it is absolutely useful! My kids caught on immediately when I said "that's one!". It is definitely not a waste of time. Not to mention schools basically use the same method of discipline, so your child will recognize the discipline methods (and consequences) at school too.
