    Your toddler throws a tantrum in the middle of a store. Your preschooler refuses to get dressed. Your fifth-grader sulks on the bench instead of playing on the field. Do children conspire to make their parents’ lives endlessly challenging? No - it’s just their developing brain calling the shots! In this pioneering, practical book, Daniel J. Siegel, neuropsychiatrist and author of the best-selling Mindsight, and parenting expert Tina Payne Bryson demystify the meltdowns and aggravation, explaining the new science of how a child’s brain is wired and how it matures.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This audiobook teaches so much about HOW the brain works. I bought the book (paper) but having 8 kids...um...I rarely had time to read. So, I downloaded it and was able to listen to it while I did other things and...it's just worth the listen. I will listen to this again.


    What did you learn from The Whole-Brain Child that you would use in your daily life?

    One thing this book brought out...about the importance of "telling our story" was actually very important to me at the time I heard it. Shortly after listening to this...I lost my 3 year old at Disney. Formerly, I might have thought it good that she "forget" about it...but instead we told and retold that story to each other every day often for a long time...and she seems now to have no weird "fears" about being lost...

    Dane and Mandy, a popular magic act for 40 years, are tragically separated by a car wreck that claims Mandy’s life—or so everyone thinks. Even as Dane mourns and tries to rebuild his life without her, Mandy, supposedly dead, awakes in the present as the19-year-old she was in 1970.

    Frank Peretti does an excellent job reading this book...which has a really great story and the ending does not disappoint. I'd say each of his books has been a "work of art" or a "masterpiece" and this book fits right in with all the others. :) I started listening to this book when I had "down time" (when I was doing something else like my hair or watering plants outside) but by half-way thru the book I was just carrying my phone around with me listening to it all the time. :)

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    If you could sum up The Help in three words, what would they be?

    Interesting - Inspirational - Educational


    What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Listening to the book was really awesome because the voices of the characters. The narrators did an awesome job. I was able to water my flower garden and do lots of other things while listening to this book on my phone and I just couldn't get enough...it was just such a great performance!
