Join us this month in reading The Whole Brain Child by Daniel J. Siegel. Copies are available through Greenwich Library's OverDrive collection and the Libby app.

This book is all about the developing mind and strategies to turn fear into a chance to integrate your child's brain and foster growth. Now more than ever parents can use these ideas to reassure children and lower stress. It works for parents too. We hope you can join us!

Facilitated by Emily Trotman, M. Ed, local Parenting Coach, and Educator. All are welcome and it is not necessary to read the book in order to attend.

In this pioneering, practical book, Daniel J. Siegel, neuropsychiatrist and author of the bestselling Mindsight, and parenting expert Tina Payne Bryson offer a revolutionary approach to child rearing with twelve key strategies that foster healthy brain development, leading to calmer, happier children. The authors explain—and make accessible—the new science of how a child’s brain is wired and how it matures. The “upstairs brain,” which makes decisions and balances emotions, is under construction until the mid-twenties. And especially in young children, the right brain and its emotions tend to rule over the logic of the left brain. No wonder kids throw tantrums, fight, or sulk in silence. By applying these discoveries to everyday parenting, you can turn any outburst, argument, or fear into a chance to integrate your child’s brain and foster vital growth.

Complete with age-appropriate strategies for dealing with day-to-day struggles and illustrations that will help you explain these concepts to your child, The Whole-Brain Child shows you how to cultivate healthy emotional and intellectual development so that your children can lead balanced, meaningful, and connected lives.
