More about 'The Yes Brain'
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.
Daniel J. Siegel and Tina Payne Bryson, Ph.D., the "New York Times" bestselling authors of "The Whole Brain Child" and "No-Drama Discipline," call a No Brain response — but it doesn’t have to be that way.
Dr. Siegel will explain how kids can be taught to approach life with openness and curiosity. Parents can foster their children’s ability to say "yes" to the world and welcome all that life has to offer, even during difficult times — this is otherwise known as cultivating the “Yes Brain.”
