1-2-3 Magic: Effective Discipline for Children 2-12 by Thomas Phelan
This book teaches about disciplining kids ages 2-12 without yelling or arguing. It also goes into how to build a good relationship with kids. There are chapters that specifically address bedtime routines, getting to school on time, having good family mealtimes, and using technology.
This was recommended to me by a therapist who used it with her four children.
It was really easy to read and seemed pretty practical. It's definitely worth reading to learn about how it all works.
I'm wondering if it really works in real life with real children. Maybe my parent readers out there can comment?
