I have a question about the 123 Magic program for managing stop behaviors. What I want to know is does the count continue throughout the day (ex. 9 am child is whining for something and you count 1, they continue and you count 2 then they stop. 2 pm child starts whining for something do you count 3, or would you start over at 1)? Thanks! Any success stories out there about this program? I agree with the no talking, no emotion rule. I think that is part of my problem - I am always talking and always showing how ticked off I am - so difficult child just keeps pushing my buttons. We have not tried this yet, but watched the video just recently.
