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

The mistake that Sharon and I both made is we never set any boundaries.  (Ozzy Osbourne)

If you are headed in the wrong direction as a parent - you are allowed to make a U-turn.

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

The challenge of adolescence is to balance the right of the parents to feel they are in charge with the need of the adolescent to gain independence.

Children do not develop on their own - they only develop within relationships.

Children today are under enormous pressures rarely experienced by their parents or grandparents. Many of today's children are being enticed to grow up too quickly and are encountering challenges for which they are totally unprepared.

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.

Being a parent of a teenager can cure a person of narcissism.

Relationships matter:  change comes through forming trusting relationships. People, not programs change people.

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.
