Publisher's Summary

Summary of The Whole-Brain Child by Daniel J. Siegel and Tina Payne Bryson | Includes Analysis

Preview:

The Whole-Brain Child by Daniel J. Siegel and Tina Payne Bryson offers recommendations for a whole-brain approach to parenting. This approach emphasizes the importance of integrating the four quadrants of a child's brain, whether in challenging or joyous moments. Geared toward the brain development of children from birth to age 12, the whole-brain approach includes 12 parenting strategies based on current brain research, as well as a concise breakdown that describes how to apply these strategies at different ages and stages. When children are taught to use their whole brain, they become more balanced and healthy overall with a heightened capacity for self-awareness, empathy, and relationship-building.

Most parents want their children to thrive, to be happy, resilient, productive, and engaged. Yet, caring for a developing child is trying, as children are prone to tantrums, bouts of outsized fears, and other challenging behaviors. In such moments, many parents just hope to survive.

Please Note: This is key takeaways and analysis of the book and not the original book.

Can't recommend summaries. Not worth the money.

I thought I'd get at least some proper substance, but I was wrong. This is more like an advert for the book rather than something worth paying for. It was my first and last summary. If only the actual book was available.

Informative and to the point

Perfect for parents who don't have time to sit and listen to anecdotes and filler... will definitely be attempting to use these techniques with my own children.

tools to try

my first audible experience.
many new tools and takeaways to try out, will buy hardcopy now because I'd like to gain more insight on what the authors introduced
So helpful to listen instead of reading a physical book .. with two young children it is proving to be very difficult!

Instaread a waste of a credit

Would you try another book from Instaread and/or Susan Murphy?

What you could glean by a 5 min google search.

What could Instaread have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Clearly highlight it is a summary. I missed this, not being familar with the brand.
This shoudl not be a whole credit, it should be much less for what you get.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Too short to appreciate
