  • 1-2-3 It's Magic. I am not sure who wrote it but it is an awesome book. My son's elementary school counselor told me about this book. She used it with her own kids. I know others that have used it and swear by it. It also works for preschool and daycares. Get the book and read it through before using it and then reread as needed.

  • I liked "Setting Boundries for the Strong-Willed Child". My middle child has the hardest head! This book makes so much sense to me and I felt like they were describing him to a T!

  • My all time favorite authority on kids? SUPERNANNY! Perhaps if you type in suppernany and the issue your having the search bar you can get articles or video even on how to resolve the issue. Her techniques work well
