Works like magic
on 19 June 2013
This works. I read the reviews about a year ago when my 5 year old was becoming intolerable and nothing seemed to help discipline him. When this arrived I read it in one sitting and decided then and there that my husband and I would be incorporating its methods into our lifestyle.
The first time we used it, it came as a shock to our son, but we continued using the methods and within one day (I kid you not) it was working. We have now maintained this method of discipline for the last year, and have maybe got to the count of '3' a handful of times. I can just say, 'one' now, and my son behaves. We are now beginning to use it on our youngest who has just turned two.
Discipline, as with all skills, needs consistency and this needs to be stuck too; by the book quite literally. I have recommended it to people, but they waiver or give up and then say it isn't working. It DOES work, you need to remain consistent and stick to it. No discussion, no arguing, just 1-2-3. I swear by it, and am proud to have a (mostly) well behaved son. It did feel like magic and it seemed so simple on reflection, but it is something you have to maintain and is a lifestyle change.
