This is one of my most well-fingered and underlined books on Parenting. Neuroscientist and psychiatrist Daniel Siegel has teamed up with an early childhood and parenting educator, Mary Hartzell, to produce a highly informative and very readable book. The ‘heavy’ scientific information is marked in grey boxes – so you can keep to the practical reading only if you prefer.
There are also ‘Inside-Out Exercises’ for the Parent to reflect on the material in their own context. I’d love to see this book as required reading for educators. If you’re serious about Parenting – this book is a must.
