ParentMagic is proud to be recognized by thousands of mental health professionals for 1-2-3 Magic Parenting. Printed by Oxford University Press, “Self-Help That Works” acknowledges books which professionals have found to be the most effective.
1-2-3 Magic was given 5 stars: highly recommended. Author John Norcross asked thousands of professionals which programs they recommend, and 1-2-3 Magic consistently came back as a top answer.
“This humorous book takes the reader through the 1-2-3 disciplinary approach with colorful and applicable illustrations. How to successfully start behaviors (e.g., cleaning room) and stop them (e.g., tantrums) are clearly described. The false assumption that the child is a little adult and the big mistakes parents make of showing too much emotion and explaining too much are played out in lighthearted but all too familiar scenarios,” reads a portion of the book review.
It continues, “Phelan demonstrates established behavioral and Adlerian principles in novel ways. Updated every few years, this book has obtained deserved commercial success and impressive sales of more than a million copies. The book is written to instruct parents in accomplishing the program, but also to demonstrate empathic support of the challenges confronted by contemporary families.”
1-2-3 Magic is a best selling book, having sold over 1.3 million copies. Written by Dr. Thomas Phelan, the program has helped parents, educators and professionals bring balance and healthy expectations into the home and classroom.
