12 Revolutionary Strategies to Nurture Your Child’s Developing Mind
Daniel J. Siegel, MD & Tina Payne Bryson, PH.D.
When children “melt down” in the middle of a store, on the baseball field or in the classroom, adults often aren’t sure what is best to do. These renowned authors suggest that such day-to-day struggles can be turned into teachable opportunities to positively influence our child’s development. They offer a brain-based framework to help adults grow the circuitry of neural connections in children that results in self-regulation and the “mindsight” for cultivating empathy, self-awareness and emotionally healthy relationships. While the book is steeped in scientific explanations, the graphic illustrations, stories and descriptions of the use of 12 strategies, such as “Name it to Tame it” or “ Move it or Lose it”, makes the reading very accessible.
