In one of the most revolutionary

your child’s good (green light) behavior, curb his annoying (yellow light) behavior, and immediately stop his unacceptable (red light)
behavior you will learn how to soothe his stormy outbursts with

techniques will save you valuable time when you need to instantly calm
an out-of-control child. The result: fewer tantrums, less yelling, and
more happy, loving time for you and your child.
