Parenting from the the Inside Out is an updated edition of the classic parenting bestseller that has sold over 155,000 copies in the US.
How many parents have found themselves thinking: 'I can't believe I just said to my child the very thing my parents used to say to me! Am I just destined to repeat the mistakes of my parents?' In Parenting from the Inside Out, child psychiatrist Daniel J. Siegel, MD, and early childhood expert Mary Hartzell, MEd, explore the extent to which our childhood experiences actually do shape the way we parent. Drawing upon stunning new findings in neurobiology and attachment research, they explain how interpersonal relationships directly impact the development of the brain, and they offer parents a step-by-step approach to forming a deeper understanding of their own life stories, which will help them raise compassionate and resilient children.
Born out of a series of parenting workshops that combined Siegel's cutting-edge research on how communication impacts brain development with Hartzell's thirty years of experience as a child-development specialist and parent educator, Parenting from the Inside Out guides parents through creating the necessary foundations for loving and secure relationships with their children.
This 10th anniversary edition includes a new preface by Daniel Siegel and incorporates the latest brain science research into this bestselling book.
