Dr. Tina Bryson is the author of The Bottom Line For Baby and the co-author, with Dan Siegel, of The Yes Brain, The Power of Showing Up, as well as two New York Times bestsellers, the Whole Brain Child and No Drama Discipline. Her body of work has had an immense impact on my parenting journey, which is only part of the reason I’m so excited she’s sharing her time with us today.
We touch on many of Dr. Bryson’s core concepts of well-adjusted parenting, most tied to the fact that our little ones are actually brilliant – that their brains create automatic associations, just like ours. Still, we need to be mindful of our explicit and implicit messaging; just because they can make associations doesn’t mean they’re right (or logical), after all.
She also gives some amazing and actionable advice on a couple specific behavioral challenges we’re seeing with Bash at home, and blesses us with some other quick tools on empowering kids to be brave, name their feelings, and build resilience. .
If you are a new parent or even thinking about having children, I would start reading her books and practicing on your partner. Dr. Bryson’s techniques are revolutionary and she is spearheading an important change in parenting that we are now seeing all over the internet – and she has been for a decade. Thank you, Dr. Tina Payne Bryson, for being on the show.
