Exciting Book Recommendation for Parents!
I am a HUGE fan of taking advantage of any and all the latest brain development discoveries! This is a resource that has dramatically empowered me as a parent and an educator based on some pretty awesome brain development insights.
Book Title: The YES Brain: How To Cultivate Courage, Curiosity, And Resilience In Your Child by Daniel J. Siegel, M.D. and Tina Payne Bryson, Ph.D. Checkout what page 9 of the book's introduction has to say about the advantages of these insights: "How would life at your house change if your kids were better at responding to everyday situations-conflict with siblings, turning off electronics, following directions, homework struggles, bedtime battles- from a Yes Brain instead of a No Brain? What would be different if they were less rigid and stubborn and the could better regulate themselves when things don't go their way? What if they welcomed new experiences instead of fearing them? What if they could be clearer about their own feelings, and more caring and empathic toward others? How much happier would they be? How much happier and more peaceful would the whole family be? That's what this book is about: helping develop a Yes Brain in your kids by giving them the space, the opportunity, and the tools to develop into people who openly engage with their world and become fully and authentically themselves. This is how we help children develop mental strength and resilience." I will be using some of the wisdom of the insights in this book as an educator and even be teaching the students some basic understandings of how they can develop a Yes Brain. I ordered my copy for Amazon. I highly recommend it!!!!!!!!
