The Whole-Brain Child

12 Revolutionary Strategies to Nurture Your Child’s Developing Mind


by Daniel J. Siegel, MD., and Tina Payne Bryson, Ph.D.


The recent discovery in neuroscience is that the brain has plasticity and

can physically change throughout one’s life. Parents can directly shape

the unfolding growth of their child’s brain by the experiences they offer

them.


The 12 strategies described in this book can be used by parents to help

their child integrate the different areas of their brain and cultivate

emotional and intellectual development for a more balanced life.


Everything a child experiences can affect the way their brain forms.

Watching television, playing video games and texting will wire the brain

in certain ways. Educational activities, sports and music wire the brain

in another way. Spending time with family and friends and learning

about relationships also affect brain development.
