How many parents have found themselves thinking: I can't believe I just said to my child the very thing my parents used to say to me! Am I just destined to repeat the mistakes of my parents? In Parenting from the Inside Out, child psychiatrist Daniel J. Siegel, M.D., and early childhood expert Mary Hartzell, M.Ed., explore the extent to which our childhood experiences actually do shape the way we parent. Drawing upon stunning new findings in neurobiology and attachment research, they explain how interpersonal relationships directly impact the development of the brain, and offer parents a step-by-step approach to forming a deeper understanding of their own life stories, which will help them raise compassionate and resilient children.

Born out of a series of parents' workshops that combined Siegel's cutting-edge research on how communication impacts brain development with Hartzell's thirty years of experience as a child-development specialist and parent educator, Parenting from the Inside Out guides parents through creating the necessary foundations for loving and secure relationships with their children.

Synopsis:

Between the ages of fifteen and twenty-five, the brain changes in important, and oftentimes maddening, ways. Its no wonder that many parents approach their childs adolescence with fear and trepidation. According to renowned neuropsychiatrist Daniel Siegel, however, if parents and teens can work together to form a deeper understanding of the brain science behind all the tumult, they will be able to turn conflict into connection and form a deeper understanding of one another.  

 

In The Teenage Brain from the Inside Out, Siegel illuminates how brain development impacts teenagers behavior and relationships. Drawing on important new research in the field of interpersonal neurobiology, he explores exciting ways in which understanding how the teenage brain functions can help parents make what is in fact an incredibly positive period of growth, change, and experimentation in their childrens lives less lonely and distressing on both sides of the generational divide.

Great book! As a therapist I recommend this to many, and it has become my new go to gift for new parents. Using research in neurobiology and attachment, (don't let this scare you, it is a readable book!) it helps you make sense of childhood experiences and build a deeper and healthier connection with your children.

This is a different kind of parenting book because it is informed by what has been learned about the neurobiology of early attachment, yet is radically simple and straight forward in it's approach. You are invited to begin within yourself in order to parent mindfully. It's a healing book, in it's way, for those of us who may not have been parented so well ourselves and need a real guide to how to do better with our own children. It's about how to parent, with separate sections focused on brain development and attachment theory interspersed throughout. Brilliant.
