Managing Difficult Behavior

Managing Difficult Behavior

When your child is upset, anxious or angry, keeping your cool is half the battle. It’s a way for you to put out the fire by throwing water on the flames, rather than fan it by adding more fuel from your own emotional tank. 1-2-3 Magic helps parents manage difficult child behavior by providing solutions that help reduce emotional stress, make better decisions, and not respond with a knee-jerk reaction when your child pushes your buttons.
