No-Drama Discipline

No-Drama Discipline: The Whole-Brain Way To Calm The Chaos and Nurture Your Child's Developing Mind By: Dr. Dan J. Siegel and Dr. Tina Payne Bryson

This is a wonderful book to add to your parenting toolbox. It has helped me to understand a little more of what is going on inside of Smalls' brain. And most importantly that her brain is constantly changing. It's important that her brain continues to grow and make new connections. Smalls' brain before we adopted her was stressed and in survival mode. Now that she is home, we can help her to make new connections to calm her chaotic, stressed brain. I am definitely NOT saying this is an easy task, because it has been the hardest thing that I've ever done in my life. This is a wonderful book that has given our family some more tools to help us to create calm in our chaotic home.

If you haven't read  The Connected Child, I would read that book first then dive into this book by Dr. Siegel and Dr. Bryson.
