"True belonging doesn't require us to change who we are. It requires us to be who we are." Social scientist Brené Brown, PhD, LMSW, has sparked a global conversation about the experiences that bring meaning to our lives - experiences of courage, vulnerability, love, belonging, shame, and empathy. In Braving the Wilderness, Brown redefines what it means to truly belong in an age of increased polarization.

Maybe I just had no idea what I was getting, but I was surprised that this book is mainly about embracing relationship with those who think (fairly specifically politically) different than you. It wasn't a bad message, but I tend to often find common ground with those who express different views so this wasn't quite what I was looking for.

Self-Reg is a groundbreaking book that presents an entirely new understanding of your child's emotions and behavior and serves as a practical guide for parents to help their kids engage calmly and successfully in learning and life. Rooted in decades of clinical practice and research by leading child psychologist Dr. Stuart Shanker, Self-Reg realigns the power of the parent-child relationship for positive change.

This book had a lot of info and background but really nothing in the way of what to do about it. It's not the first book I've read that deals with these same things & was definitely the least helpful. The Explosive Child & What Your Explosive Child is Trying to Tell You we're way more helpful in way to help with regulation even if your child isn't necessarily an exploder.
