Parenting from the Inside Out

Daniel Siegel M.D. and Mary Hartzell M. Ed. – The way we were treated as children shapes the development of our brain. This book by psychologist Dan Siegel and child development specialist Mary Hartzell explains how our traits as parents evolve from our own childhood experiences. Based on Siegel’s research of fascinating neurobiological studies and Hartzell’s 30-years experience working with parents and children, the book details how parents can better relate to their children by understanding the source of their own emotional reactions. By gaining compassion and understanding of both ours and our childrens’ early life experiences, we are able to challenge and improve upon engrained parental reactions. The lessons of this book teach us to offer our children the best form of care, love and nurturance we are capable of giving.
