The Parenting Course

1-2-3 Magic is aimed at children aged 2-12, and aims to teach parents how to deal with their children's difficult behaviour by using an easy-to-learn and easy-to-use signalling system to manage children's difficult behaviour. The signalling system requires the parent to use less talk and less emotion, which in turn encourages the development of children's ability to manage their emotional reactions to parental boundaries (or emotional competence). 


Engaging adolescents is for parents of tweens + teens (Year 5 + over). The course aims to equip parents with knowledge + skills to build relationships with their teenagers; to work out how to respond in emotional encounters; + to work through tough  conversations on important issues.
