The sixth edition of the 1.7 million-copy bestseller 1-2-3 Magic by internationally acclaimed parenting expert Thomas W. Phelan, Ph.D. compiles two decades of research and experience into an easy-to-use program designed for parents striving to connect more deeply with their children and help them develop into healthy, capable teenagers and adults.

Being a parent is one of the most rewarding experiences in life, but every family faces challenges that can be frustrating and overwhelming.

Phelan’s 1-2-3 Magic has helped millions of parents, teachers, and caregivers raise independent, emotionally intelligent children and build happier, healthier families – all through an easy to understand program that you’ll swear “works like magic”.

Dr. Phelan breaks down the complex task of parenting into three straightforward steps:

  1. Helping your children learn how to control their emotions and refrain from negative behavior, including tantrums, whining, and sibling rivalry
  2. Encouraging good behavior in your children and providing positive feedback
  3. Strengthening your relationships with your children to reinforce the natural parent-child bond

You’ll find tools to use in virtually every situation, as well as real-life stories from parents who have successfully navigated common parenting challenges such as reluctance to do chores, talking back, and refusing to go to bed or getting up in the middle of the night. For years, millions of parents from all over the world have used the award-winning 1-2-3 Magic program to help their children develop emotional intelligence, raise healthier, happier families, and put the fun back into parenting.

One of the most common sense parenting books I have read. It could have been written by a friend. It seems doable in every day life and applicable to most situations…not just textbook ones.

If you’re a parent, you need this book on your shelf. I go to it, just as a reminder of what the hell I’m supposed to do when my child melts down about putting on his shoes to go to the park: “But you love the park, I’m doing this for you, why are you being an asshole?” Yes, this book, in its simple, straight-forward directions, tells you what to do about behavior.
