Technology and parenting are becoming intertwined.

ParentMagic Inc is proud to release the 1-2-3 Magic Toolkit. The app gives parents the necessary tools to follow through with the 1-2-3 Magic Program right from their iPhone or iPod Touch.
Technology and parenting are becoming intertwined. In late 2012 smart phones exceeded 50% of the U.S. phone market. Over 250 million iPhones have sold since 2007. The introduction of the 1-2-3 Magic Toolkit makes it easier than ever to effectively parent, making these tools readily available to the 1.3 million parents who have read 1-2-3 Magic.
"We live in a time when technology is intersecting every part of our lives," says creator of 1-2-3 Magic Dr. Thomas Phelan, "and it is our hope that this app helps parents to follow through with the concepts in 1-2-3 Magic."
Tools in the 1-2-3 Magic Toolkit are taken directly from the best-selling 1-2-3 Magic Program. The app features profiles for both children and parents. Users can keep track of counting a child or of points earned for start behaviors like chores or doing homework, taking memory work out of the equation.
The app also features quick tips to give parents a reference point for essential concepts from the 1-2-3 Magic book, and a built-in timer so that parents can easily track time outs.
For a limited time (March 11-15, 2013) the app will be available from the Apple App Store for $1.50, 50% off of its normal price.
