Publisher’s Description: 

When facing challenges, unpleasant tasks, and contentious issues such as homework, screen time, food choices, and bedtime, children often act out or shut down, responding with reactivity instead of receptivity. This is what New York Times bestselling authors Daniel J. Siegel and Tina Payne Bryson call a No Brain response. But our kids can be taught to approach life with openness and curiosity. Parents can foster their childrens ability to say yes to the world and welcome all that life has to offer, even during difficult times. This is what it means to cultivate a Yes Brain.

When kids work from a Yes Brain, theyre more willing to take chances and explore. Theyre more curious and imaginative, less worried about making mistakes. Theyre better at relationships and more flexible and resilient when it comes to handling adversity and big feelings. They work from a clear internal compass that directs their decisions, as well as the way they treat others. Guided by their Yes Brain, they become more open, creative, and resilient.

In The Yes Brain, the authors give parents skills, scripts, ideas, and activities to bring kids of all ages into the overwhelmingly beneficial yes state. Youll learn

the four fundamentals of the Yes Brainbalance, resilience, insight, and empathyand how to strengthen them
the key to knowing when kids need a gentle push out of a comfort zone vs. needing the cushion of safety and familiarity
strategies for navigating away from negative behavioral and emotional states (aggression and withdrawal) and expanding your childs capacity for positivity

With inspirational anecdotes, fun and helpful illustrations, and a handy Yes Brain Refrigerator Sheet to keep your family on point, The Yes Brain is an essential tool for nurturing positive potential and keeping your childs inner spark glowing and growing strongand gifting your children with a life of rich relational connections, meaningful interactions with the world, and emotional equanimity.
