We tried the 123 Magic discipline strategy for our foster son at the suggestion of his caseworker and therapist. We felt that it was easy to follow and understand, even for a six year old! It is a quick way to stop unwanted behavior and was helpful for us as parents to cut the emotion out of the equation. I would recommend giving it a read as it is quick to get through and implement. So, if it turns out to not work for you, there is little time wasted.

Absolutely the worst book on disciplining imaginable. The book teaches you to train your children like dogs, and not like little people looking for an adult to guide them as they discover their place in this world. This book is a guide for anyone who wants to be that nasty parent, whose kids grow up resenting their parents. Also the author has this distorted perspective on siblings. As opposed to viewing siblings as an essential unit that completes a family structure, his view on siblings is as if they are meant to be your kids arch enemies. I did read the entire book though with an open mind, hoping I will be able to take something away from it, and very disappointingly not one of the author's ideas resonated with my style of parenting. I would recommend:
Mommy rescue guide, The no-cry discipline solution and If I have to tell you one more time.
