Publisher's Summary

From the best-selling parenting experts behind The Whole-Brain Child comes a highly successful plan for helping your child become more independent and resilient.
Children can often act out or shut down when faced with a setback or a tricky issue like homework, food or screen time. This is what acclaimed parenting experts Dr Siegel and Dr Bryson call the 'No Brain' response. But you can help your child develop the ability to cope, solve their own problems and thrive by nurturing their 'Yes Brain'.
Drawing on their successful work with thousands of parents and children from all backgrounds, Dr Siegel and Dr Bryson provide the advice, tools and activities to help parents with children of all ages.
This is what the 'Yes Brain' approach looks like in action:

A five-year-old boy thinks about his first day at school and says, 'I'm nervous, but I'll give it a try.'
An eight-year-old girl says, 'I'd like to join the football team, even though none of my friends like football.'
A 14 year-old boy looks at a test he's earned a D- for and says, 'That's not the mark I wanted, but it's not the end of the world. I'll ask the teacher how I can improve.'

Kudos to Dan Siegel - I've been following his work for a few years now. Parenting is challenging and rewarding, it's also sometimes bewildering ..... Dan's work has been an invaluable part of my journey.

Non judgemental or condescending

Loved this. Presented in a concise, non patronising or judgemental way. I was able to take away what best applied to me and my children with actionable take aways that could be implemented straight away, whilst also giving me reflection on long term changes I can implement.
