Tina Payne Bryson demystifies meltdowns and aggravation, explaining in a clear and practical way the new science of how a child’s brain is wired and how it matures. Dr. Bryson will introduce twelve practical Whole-Brain strategies which can be applied to everyday parenting, turning outbursts, arguments, and fears into opportunities to integrate a child’s brain and foster vital growth.
