Publisher’s Description: 

From the authors of The Whole-Brain Child and No-Drama Discipline, an indispensable guide to unlocking your childs innate capacity for resilience, compassion, and creativity.

When facing contentious issues such as 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. When kids work from a Yes Brain, theyre more willing to take chances and explore. Theyre more curious and imaginative. Theyre better at relationships and handling adversity. In The Yes Brain, the authors give parents skills, scripts, and activities to bring kids of all ages into the 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

The Yes Brain is an essential tool for nurturing positive potential and keeping your childs inner spark glowing and growing strong.
