An updated edition—with a new preface—of the bestselling parenting classic by the author of "BRAINSTORM: The Power and Purpose of the Teenage Brain"

In Parenting from the Inside Out, child psychiatrist Daniel J. Siegel, M.D., and early childhood expert Mary Hartzell, M.Ed., explore the extent to which our childhood experiences shape the way we parent. Drawing on stunning new findings in neurobiology and attachment research, they explain how interpersonal relationships directly impact the development of the brain, and offer parents a step-by-step approach to forming a deeper understanding of their own life stories, which will help them raise compassionate and resilient children.

Born out of a series of parents' workshops that combined Siegel's cutting-edge research on how communication impacts brain development with Hartzell's decades of experience as a child-development specialist and parent educator, this book guides parents through creating the necessary foundations for loving and secure relationships with their children.

This book has been extremely helpful for me. I did not read the whole thing because it got a bit too slow about halfway through, but the first half is worth 5 stars. There are a lot of things that happened in my childhood that I would brush off as irrelevant to my life now, but when I really examine them and come to terms with the good & the bad that is when I know I can grow past them and be the parent that I want to be.

Great explanations

This book contained great explanations for why we fall into particular patterns and I did enjoy having the references to be able to dive in and study more, but I wanted more “how to” than “why” or “what” answers.

In the quest for being a better parent, get to heal yourself. Great, practical and science/evidence based advice from the leading interpersonal neurobiologist in the field combined with the practical experience and applications of a primary school educator. Top notch help and applicable lessons right from the start.

BEST BOOK EVER. Read it for my Sex Therapy Class, which might not seem like it’s relevant but it is – talks about how our own experiences influence all of our relationships and how we inadventently pass our history onto others. Every human, not just parents, should read this.

Great resource!

Great book for counselors and parents alike. It’s a little bit more tough to read than Siegel’s “The Whole Brain Child.” Overall, an excellent resource.
