Summary, etc.:
"The brain is either in a reactive (no) state, which makes us rigid and self-conscious, putting us on high alert for rules and consequences; or in a receptive (yes) state, which is what enables curiosity and creativity, and fosters resilience. Most traditional learning environments--and many parenting approaches--necessarily trigger the "no" state in children (allowing teachers and school systems to assess and manage them), but parents can nurture the mindset that leads to authentic happiness and success by supplying children with neurological counterbalancing "yes brain" experiences and interactions. Dan Siegel, a thought-leader in the field of neuropsychiatry, and Tina Payne Bryson, who runs the parenting education/class component of his famed institute in LA, explain the underpinnings of this neurological dichotomy, and give parents the scripts, ideas and activities for igniting and wiring the "yes" state in kids of all ages. From what to say to and do for the young child who is melting down (a reactive state) to help him get back to emotional balance (the responsive state), to how to assess extra-curricular activities and deal with the urge to over-schedule our older kids (which spurs a reactive, "no" mindset), The Yes Brain is an essential tool for nurturing positive neurology--and gifting our children with profound, lifelong results"-- Provided by publisher.
