It make sense. Great book.,
This review is from: The Whole-Brain Child: 12 Proven Strategies to Nurture Your Child’s Developing Mind (Paperback)
I love this book. It all makes sense now and how the little ones brain work. I used to reason before using empathy but doing it the other way round makes much more sense and best of all, it works.
What I love about this book is that it gives you examples how to explain things to children in easy way they would understand with examples. It's written in easy language and I had a great understanding of the parts of brain, how to use them, why we need to use them and why children or I should say people react how they react. The book goes from connection and redirection, how to calm big emotions, how to control big emotions, how to replay memories (painful ones too), teaching how feelings come and go etc. I got better understanding of myself, my children but also other people. This book is for the sanity of parenthood.
