It's more effective to reward your child for being "good" (appropriate) than to punish him for being "bad" (inappropriate).

Don't wait for him to turn 10 before you reveal that you are not in fact the hired help whose job it is to clean up after him.

The more 2 parents differ in their approaches to discipline, the more likely it leads to trouble for the child.

Setting limits teaches your children valuable skills they will use the rest of their lives. One day, they will report to a job where their ability to follow rules will dictate their success.

Some hope their children will be like sponges soaking up the truth and wisdom imparted by their parents. However appealing this philosophy might be, it seldom seems to catch on with their children.

The way we talk to our children becomes their inner voice. (Peggy O'Mara)

When a child is disregulated - is the time parents need to be regulated.

Children mimic well. They catch what they see better than they follow what they hear.

Early intervention is always better than crisis management - but it is never too late to do the right thing.

The best inheritance  parents can give their children is a few minutes of their time each day.

4-5-6 Magic

Thomas Phelan’s 1-2-3 Magic has been magic for many families with children in the 2 to 12 year age range. 4-5-6 Magic picks up where 1-2-3 ends and teaches parents new tricks on how to use the same proven principle with 13 to 18 year olds.

The younger the child-the more control the parent has!

The older the child – the more control the child has!

4-5-6 Magic helps parents steer their way through the minefield of adolescence.
