Publisher's Summary

From the best-selling parenting experts behind The Whole-Brain Child comes a highly successful plan for helping your child become more independent and resilient.

Children can often act out or shut down when faced with a setback or a tricky issue like homework, food or screen time. This is what acclaimed parenting experts Dr Siegel and Dr Bryson call the 'No Brain' response. But you can help your child develop the ability to cope, solve their own problems and thrive by nurturing their 'Yes Brain'.

Drawing on their successful work with thousands of parents and children from all backgrounds, Dr Siegel and Dr Bryson provide the advice, tools and activities to help parents with children of all ages.

This is what the 'Yes Brain' approach looks like in action:

  • A five-year-old boy thinks about his first day at school and says, 'I'm nervous, but I'll give it a try.'
  • An eight-year-old girl says, 'I'd like to join the football team, even though none of my friends like football.'
  • A 14 year-old boy looks at a test he's earned a D- for and says, 'That's not the mark I wanted, but it's not the end of the world. I'll ask the teacher how I can improve.'

Wisdom for parents - simple, clear & full of heart

All Dan Siegel's books are excellent.

The three zones and how to help our children develop resilience and empathy are really helpful.

Dan's compassion and humanity shine through. It's not easy to recognize what's going on and respond appropriately to our children in every moment of every day; Dan & Tina acknowledge this and provide positive encouragement.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Take a breath; building resilience & relationship

Any additional comments?

Kudos to Dan Siegel - I've been following his work for a few years now. Parenting is challenging and rewarding, it's also sometimes bewildering ..... Dan's work has been an invaluable part of my journey.

One of the best books for mindful parenting

This is indeed one of the best books I have read on mindful parenting. It's so good that it needs digesting. I will take a break and then come back to it a few times. Children will thank us in years that we have read this book!

Non judgemental or condescending

Loved this. Presented in a concise, non patronising or judgemental way. I was able to take away what best applied to me and my children with actionable take aways that could be implemented straight away, whilst also giving me reflection on long term changes I can implement.

Insightful and educational - will refer to this book often

I really like how insightful this book is. I like that, although they go into some detail to explain the science behind the inner workings of a child’s brain, it’s not difficult to understand or overly science-y. I started implementing green zone strategies also immediately and
