Free sample

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • The pioneering experts behind The Whole-Brain Child and The Yes Brain tackle the ultimate parenting challenge: discipline.
“A lot of fascinating insights . . . an eye-opener worth reading.”—Parents

Highlighting the fascinating link between a child’s neurological development and the way a parent reacts to misbehavior, No-Drama Discipline provides an effective, compassionate road map for dealing with tantrums, tensions, and tears—without causing a scene.
Defining the true meaning of the “d” word (to instruct, not to shout or reprimand), the authors explain how to reach your child, redirect emotions, and turn a meltdown into an opportunity for growth. By doing so, the cycle of negative behavior (and punishment) is essentially brought to a halt, as problem solving becomes a win/win situation. Inside this sanity-saving guide you’ll discover
• strategies that help parents identify their own discipline philosophy—and master the best methods to communicate the lessons they are trying to impart
• facts on child brain development—and what kind of discipline is most appropriate and constructive at all ages and stages
• the way to calmly and lovingly connect with a child—no matter how extreme the behavior—while still setting clear and consistent limits
• tips for navigating your child through a tantrum to achieve insight, empathy, and repair
• twenty discipline mistakes even the best parents make—and how to stay focused on the principles of whole-brain parenting and discipline techniques
Complete with candid stories and playful illustrations that bring the authors’ suggestions to life, No-Drama Discipline shows you how to work with your child’s developing mind, peacefully resolve conflicts, and inspire happiness and strengthen resilience in everyone in the family.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • The authors of No-Drama Discipline and The Yes Brain explain the new science of how a child’s brain is wired and how it matures in this pioneering, practical book.
“Simple, smart, and effective solutions to your child’s struggles.”—Harvey Karp, M.D.
In this pioneering, practical book, Daniel J. Siegel, neuropsychiatrist and author of the bestselling Mindsight, and parenting expert Tina Payne Bryson offer a revolutionary approach to child rearing with twelve key strategies that foster healthy brain development, leading to calmer, happier children. The authors explain—and make accessible—the new science of how a child’s brain is wired and how it matures. The “upstairs brain,” which makes decisions and balances emotions, is under construction until the mid-twenties. And especially in young children, the right brain and its emotions tend to rule over the logic of the left brain. No wonder kids throw tantrums, fight, or sulk in silence. By applying these discoveries to everyday parenting, you can turn any outburst, argument, or fear into a chance to integrate your child’s brain and foster vital growth.            
Complete with age-appropriate strategies for dealing with day-to-day struggles and illustrations that will help you explain these concepts to your child, The Whole-Brain Child shows you how to cultivate healthy emotional and intellectual development so that your children can lead balanced, meaningful, and connected lives.
“[A] useful child-rearing resource for the entire family . . . The authors include a fair amount of brain science, but they present it for both adult and child audiences.”—Kirkus Reviews
“Strategies for getting a youngster to chill out [with] compassion.”—The Washington Post
“This erudite, tender, and funny book is filled with fresh ideas based on the latest neuroscience research. I urge all parents who want kind, happy, and emotionally healthy kids to read The Whole-Brain Child. This is my new baby gift.”—Mary Pipher, Ph.D., author of Reviving Ophelia and The Shelter of Each Other

“Gives parents and teachers ideas to get all parts of a healthy child’s brain working together.”—Parent to Parent
Some things about babies, happily, will never change. They still arrive warm, cuddly, soft, and smelling impossibly sweet. But how moms and dads care for their brand-new bundles of baby joy has changed—and now, so has the new-baby bible.

Announcing the completely revised third edition of What to Expect the First Year. With over 10.5 million copies in print, First Year is the world’s best-selling, best-loved guide to the instructions that babies don’t come with, but should. And now, it’s better than ever. Every parent’s must-have/go-to is completely updated.

Keeping the trademark month-by-month format that allows parents to take the potentially overwhelming first year one step at a time, First Year is easier-to-read, faster-to-flip-through, and new-family-friendlier than ever—packed with even more practical tips, realistic advice, and relatable, accessible information than before. Illustrations are new, too.

Among the changes: Baby care fundamentals—crib and sleep safety, feeding, vitamin supplements—are revised to reflect the most recent guidelines. Breastfeeding gets more coverage, too, from getting started to keeping it going. Hot-button topics and trends are tackled: attachment parenting, sleep training, early potty learning (elimination communication), baby-led weaning, and green parenting (from cloth diapers to non-toxic furniture). An all-new chapter on buying for baby helps parents navigate through today’s dizzying gamut of baby products, nursery items, and gear. Also new: tips on preparing homemade baby food, the latest recommendations on starting solids, research on the impact of screen time (TVs, tablets, apps, computers), and “For Parents” boxes that focus on mom’s and dad’s needs. Throughout, topics are organized more intuitively than ever, for the best user experience possible.
Una guía imprescindible para orientar y alimentar el desarrollo mental de tu hijo.

Por los autores del best seller internacional El cerebro del niño.

Los autores de El cerebro del niño, Daniel J. Siegel y Tina Payne Bryson, analizan, en esta ocasión, el desafío primordial en la educación de los hijos: la disciplina.

Haciendo hincapié en el fascinante vínculo entre el desarrollo neurológico del niño y el modo en que los padres reaccionan ante la mala conducta de este, La disciplina sin lágrimas proporciona un efectivo y compasivo «mapa de carreteras» para afrontar las pataletas, las tensiones y las lágrimas sin montar un número.

Al definir el verdadero significado de la palabra «disciplina» (instruir, no gritar ni regañar), los autores explican cómo establecer conexión con el niño, redirigir emociones y convertir una rabieta en una oportunidad para crecer. De este modo, el ciclo de comportamiento (y castigo) negativo básicamente se detiene, mientras que la resolución del problema se transforma en una situación en la que todos salen ganando.

En esta guía para no volverte loco descubrirás:
- Estrategias para ayudar a los padres a identificar su propia filosofía disciplinaria y dominar los mejores métodos para transmitir las lecciones que intentan impartir.

- Aspectos del desarrollo del cerebro del niño y análisis de las disciplinas más adecuadas y constructivas para todas las edades y etapas.

- La manera de conectar con un niño con tranquilidad y afectuosidad -por extrema que sea su conducta-, fijando a la vez límites claros y coherentes.

- Consejos para orientar a tus hijos a lo largo de una pataleta a fin de lograr percepción, empatía y reparación.

- Veinte errores en relación con la disciplina que hasta los mejores padres cometen, y cómo permanecer centrados en los principios de las técnicas disciplinarias y el estilo parental de «cerebro pleno».

Complementado con sencillas historias y divertidas ilustraciones que dan vida a las sugerencias de los autores, La disciplina sin lágrimas explica cómo trabajar con la mente en desarrollo de tu hijo, resolver conflictos de forma tranquila, inspirar felicidad y fortalecer la resiliencia en todos los miembros de la familia.

«Tormenta cerebral es revelador y vivificante... Daniel Siegel demuestra que los supuestos inconvenientes de los años jóvenes tienen también sus ventajas, y que las lecciones de vida que esperan a los adolescentes son lecciones de las que puede aprender cualquiera de nosotros, a cualquier edad. Adolescentes y padres pueden beneficiarse inmensamente de la lectura de este libro, juntos o por separado.»—Daniel Goleman, autor de Inteligencia Emocional

«Tormenta cerebral es una lectura obligada para todos los padres que quieren evitar las turbulencias emocionales en su vida mientras sus hijos atraviesan la adolescencia. Es un salvavidas para toda la familia.»—Deepak Chopra, médico

Entre los doce y los veinticuatro años el cerebro se transforma de manera decisiva y, con frecuencia, complicada. En Tormenta cerebral, Daniel Siegel, el reconocido psiquiatra y autor de éxitos editoriales como El cerebro del niño, desmantela una serie de mitos populares sobre la adolescencia —por ejemplo, que es una simple fase de «inmadurez» llena de comportamientos a menudo «enloquecidos»— para descubrir cómo, en realidad, es una etapa transcendental de nuestras vidas a la hora de trazar la trayectoria del adulto que acabaremos siendo.

Siegel ofrece a los lectores un enfoque desde el interior para centrarse en cómo afecta a nuestra conducta y a nuestras relaciones el desarrollo del cerebro. Según Siegel, entender cómo funciona el cerebro puede mejorar las vidas de los adolescentes y hacer sus relaciones más satisfactorias y menos solitarias y perturbadoras.

Tormenta cerebral ofrece a jóvenes y a padres una hoja de ruta para entender la mente de los adolescentes, que no solo va a ayudar a las familias a sobrevivir, sino también a progresar durante los «años adolescentes» y más allá.
