Raising kids Mindfully:~~~~ so challenging and important! the first 3 years of life!!


.

.

Trying to manage the chaos of three Grandkids, two in diapers, this is a new read for me.
.
.
“In this pioneering, practical book, Daniel J. Siegel, neuropsychiatrist and author of the bestselling Mindsight, and parenting expert Tina Payne Bryson offer a revolutionary approach to child rearing with twelve key strategies that foster healthy brain development, leading to calmer, happier children.
.
The authors explain—and make accessible—the new science of how a child’s brain is wired and how it matures.
.
The “upstairs brain,” which makes decisions and balances emotions, is under construction until the mid-twenties.
.
And especially in young children, the right brain and its emotions tend to rule over the logic of the left brain.
.
No wonder kids throw tantrums, fight, or sulk in silence. By applying these discoveries to everyday parenting, you can turn any outburst, argument, or fear into a chance to integrate your child’s brain and foster vital growth.”
.

“Complete with age-appropriate strategies for dealing with day-to-day struggles and illustrations that will help you explain these concepts to your child, The Whole-Brain Child shows you how to cultivate healthy emotional and intellectual development so that your children can lead balanced, meaningful, and connected lives.”
