The Whole-Brain Child

Amazing book by Tina Bryson and Daniel Siedel. Tina Bryson and Daniel Siegel have suggestions for us how to turn those parenting survival moments to thrive moments.

Did you ever wonder ….: 

·         How can I help my child when he is in turmoil?

·         What I can do when my child is “emotionally flooded”? 

·         What I can do when my child has a negative experience and does not want to try it again?

If you answered yes to at least one of the above questions, I suggest you read an amazing book written by Dr. Tina Bryson and Dr. Daniel J. Siegel The Whole-Brain Child.

It seems as parents, we spend some fraction of our time connecting meaningfully to our children, while the bulk of our time is spent on just trying to survive.  Can you relate to this statement? If so, read on…

Ask yourself: What do you want for your  child?

To be:

·         Happy

·         Independent

·         Successful 

How much time during the day do we spend towards helping our children develop these qualities? 

Tina Bryson and Daniel Siegel have suggestions for us how to turn those survival moments to thrive moments.

The book impressed me with their simple step by step approach that can be applied right away. Another important element of this book -- it gives scientific explanation why certain approaches would or would not work.  The authors not only share this information with adults, but they also give us tips how to talk to a young child about brain science.  And how this knowledge can help our children and us with the ability to pause, gain control and integrate our left and right brain hemispheres, as well as our upper and lower brain. 

1/24/13 – Parenting Book Club – The Whole Brain Child, by Dr. Dan Siegel & Tina Bryson.  This discussion will be held at Orchid Daycare (safe, organic Eco-healthy environment) in Glendale. See link below for details on location, time, cost: Whole Brain Child Parenting Book Club

We hope you enjoyed the book and we will see you at our Parenting Book Club meeting.

Best wishes,
Teacher Kira

I can not wait for this book club/ counseling session with two great teachers Gilda and Kira. I have been attending their book club over the years and every time my relationship with my daughter, my family, my friends have been steadily improving. This book provides also a great insights into the eating habits of your child, as well as how to influence his healthy habits without actually doing anything "educational" or forced. Come over and enjoy comrade with like-minded, and light refreshment ;-)
