This book is suitable for ages 2 to 12 years. By presenting the popular 1-2-3 Magic parenting program from a child's point of view, this innovative guide provides kids with a thorough understanding of the disciplinary system - from the counting and time-out methods parents will be using to how better behaviour benefits the entire family and leaves more time for play. Storytelling portions are coupled with copious illustrations to help describe the basic tenets of 1-2-3 Magic - such as positive reinforcement, charting, and the docking system - while a question-and-answer section outlines common situations, including What if I don't go to my room? Will I still be counted if I have a friend over? and What kinds of things can we do for one-on-one fun? Crossword puzzles, word searches, and journal suggestions further encourage children to apply what they've learned about the methods.
