DALLAS, Texas, Sept. 24 /Christian Newswire/ -- All parents want to raise well-behaved children, but unfortunately, for many the arduous task of parenting is a constant battle for control—not just of their children's misbehavior but also of their own parental emotions. Too often the tantrums thrown by unruly kids are eclipsed by the larger tantrums of their angry parents.
Clearly, parenting demands a game plan. In their new book, 1-2-3 Magic for Christian Parents: Effective Discipline for Children 2-12, pastor and counselor Chris Webb teams up with psychologist and author Dr. Tom Phelan. They offer families three simple steps that will empower parents, restore order to any household and pave the way for parents to enjoy their children again.
The previous editions of the 1-2-3 Magic book have sold over a million copies and have elicited praise from parents, teachers and counselors all over the country. As a father of three, Webb was impressed by the inherently biblical principles set forth in the book and began using it with his own children. "I couldn't believe how quickly the atmosphere in my house began to change," Webb recalls. "Before I discovered the 1-2-3 method, I often lost my temper with my kids, and I felt guilty every time that happened. Now I can control my emotions, and that has made all the difference." Chris began recommending the 1-2-3 method in his counseling sessions and at parenting conferences. He was amazed to discover that virtually none of the Christians he met had ever heard of this miraculous approach. He has coauthored this new version for the express purpose of putting this invaluable tool into the hands of Christian families.
The book contains scripture references that support the biblical basis for a technique so remarkably simple that parents can begin using it immediately with astounding results. Also provided are specific instructions for dealing with the most common parenting landmines: tantrums, bedtime issues, nighttime waking, sibling rivalry, homework, misbehavior in public and testing and manipulation. This new version includes suggestions for parents who want to pass down their faith, teach their children about God and manage misbehavior at church. 1-2-3 Magic for Christian Parents is an essential resource for any Christian parent or children's minister who wants to see happy, well-behaved parents enjoying happy, well-behaved children.
