Publisher Comments:

A pioneering neuropsychiatric and parenting expert offer a revolutionary approach to child rearing with twelve key strategies that foster healthy brain development, leading to calmer, happier children.

Review:

"Neuropsychiatrist Siegel (Parenting from the Inside Out) teams up with psychotherapist Bryson in this brain guidebook for parents. The authors assert that parents can have a positive and important impact on helping kids develop brain skills. Siegel and Bryson clearly explain how the brain develops, pointing out specific examples of the brain at work in various situations (e.g., a four-year-old who melts down when left at preschool is working from her right brain; a 12-year-old who denies her emotions after a quarrel with a friend operates from the left brain). The authors offer 12 strategies parents can use to help their children integrate the various parts of the brain. For instance, a strategy called 'Connect and Redirect' is used when a child is having a tantrum; it's best to connect with the right or emotional side of the brain, offering comfort, and later appeal to the left or logical brain when the child has calmed down (when a child is upset, logic often doesn't work). Siegel and Bryson reveal that an integrated brain with parts that cooperate in a coordinated and balanced manner creates a better understanding of self, stronger relationships, and success in school, among other benefits. With illustrations, charts, and even a handy 'Refrigerator Sheet,' the authors have made every effort to make brain science parent-friendly. (Oct.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC.

Book News Annotation:

In what is presented as an antidote to expert approaches that stress achievement at any cost, Siegel (psychiatry, UCLA School of Medicine) and Bryson (pediatric and adolescent psychotherapist, Arcadia, CA) explain how parents can use everyday interactions with children to help them thrive. The guide includes practical suggestions based on findings about the developing brain (e.g., on integrating the impulsive "downstairs" brain with the more reflective "upstairs" brain), illustrative cartoons, and a chart summarizing applications of these strategies at each age and developmental stage.
