What if parents had a simple and practical way to use the latest scientific research to be better parents and help their children be happier, healthier, and more successful? Parenting with the Brain in Mind introduces parents and teachers to essential and groundbreaking science in an accessible, interesting, and practical way, so they can then apply that knowledge in their breakfast-table, grocery-store, temper-tantrum, everyday care-giving world. Drawing on cutting-edge science, this presentation will use stories and humor to teach practical information about a child’s brain and offer a new perspective on some of the most pressing concerns, along with some tools and strategies for addressing them:

  • How can I help them better handle their emotions at home and in school?
  • How can I discipline in a way that’s more effective and loving?
  • How can a new approach to dealing with tantrums help their brain develop?
  • How can I communicate more effectively with my children when they’re irrational?

The “Brain-in-Mind” perspective, along with the many practical tools that result from it, can empower parents to raise kids who are happy, healthy, balanced, and more fully themselves.

Dr. Tina Payne Bryson speaks internationally to parents, educators, camps, and clinicians. She is the co-author (with Dan Siegel) of the New York Times best-selling THE WHOLE-BRAIN CHILD and the New York Times best-selling NO-DRAMA DISCIPLINE, as well as the upcoming THE YES BRAIN (Random House, January 2018)
