Are you the parent of a strong-willed child? Is bedtime a nightly battle? Are you looking to discipline without stress?
Since kids don't come with a manual, 1-2-3 Magic is the next best thing. Dr. Thomas Phelan has developed a quick, simple and scientifically proven way to parent that actually works!
Using his signature 1-2-3 counting method, Dr. Phelan helps parents to curb obnoxious behaviors like tantrums and meltdowns, whining and pouting, talking back, sibling rivalry and more in toddlers, preschoolers and middle schoolers.
He guides parents through drama-free discipline methods that include handling time outs in public, the appropriate length of a time out, and what to do if your child resists the time out.
Dr. Phelan also covers how to establish positive routines around bedtime, dinnertime, homework and getting up and out in the morning, and tips for strengthening your relationship with your kids.
For decades, millions of parents from all over the world have used the award-winning 1-2-3 Magic technique to raise happier families and put the fun back into parenting.

Michael Gunter, an ecologist, examines the Levolution process, which underlies a whole new paradigm that explains how the universe works and what it is doing. It is responsible for creating every type of naturally occurring system we know.
In easy-to-understand language, Gunter explains how Levolution is based on simple properties of energy flowing in systems. Learning how it works will help you understand: the cosmological relevance of energy and its laws; the contents of the universe as twenty- three levels of increasing, entropically functional order imposed on a single batch of energy; that the universe appears to have a purpose.
The end result is an entirely new perspective on what we call order and a new spin on what ancient and recent thinkers have said about the nature of the universe.
The newly proposed Laws of Functional Order will equip you to understand the profound role of thermodynamic natural selection, universal evolution, and the cosmic order caused by Levolution.
