Praise for The Whole-Brain Child

"This erudite, tender and funny book is filled with fresh ideas based on the latest neuroscience research.  I urge all parents who want kind, happy, and emotionally healthy kids to read The Whole-Brain Child. I wish I had read it when my kids were young, but no one knew then what Siegel and Bryson share with us in an immensely practical way. This is my new baby gift."
–Mary Pipher, author of Reviving Ophelia and The Shelter of Each Other
 
 
The Whole-Brain Child is chock-full of strategies for raising happy, resilient children. It offers powerful tools for helping children develop the emotional intelligence they will need to be successful in the world.  Parents will learn ways to feel more connected to their children, and more satisfied in their role as a parent.  Most of all, The Whole-Brain Child helps parents teach kids about how their brain actually works, giving even very young children the self-understanding that can lead them to make good choices, and, ultimately, to lead meaningful and joyful lives.”
Christine Carter, Ph.D., author of Raising Happiness
 
“In their dynamic and readable new book, Dan Siegel and Tina Payne Bryson sweep aside the old models of 'good' and 'bad' parenting to offer a scientific focus: the impact of parenting on brain development. Parents will certainly recognize themselves in the lively 'aha' anecdotes that fill these pages.  More importantly, they will see how everyday empathy and insight can help a child to integrate his or her experience and develop a more resilient brain.”
Michael Thompson, Ph.D.
