Wonderful Resource.

This is a wonderful resource for teachers, parents and anyone who works with children and young adults. Great strategies and lots of food for thought. As a teacher it has helped me in my practices working with children who are experiencing challenging behaviors. I highly recommended it to my Educator friends and staff members. Thank you!

Need to read (listen)

Awesome! I will be listening to this again! Every teacher and parent should listen to this book. I would like to be able to get access to the worksheets in the book though.

A must read for anyone who works with children.

Whole Brain Child, Discipline with out Damage, No Drama Discipline- all books that have been wonderful and helpful. This book fills a gap and goes deeper into bottom up behaviors and where they come from. Anyone who works with children will benefit from this book. If you have been a struggling parent this is a game changer.

Must read

Absolutely one of the best books I have ever read on my quest for knowledge on how to help my child. This book provides insights into raising children with a present compassionate approach rather than the traditional authoritative consequence reaction.

highly recommend

I loved this book. it's a different perspective that's scientifically based and so compassionate. This work is so absolutely needed. I hope to see the paradigm shifting more and more away from diagnosis focused to what she presents here. highly recommend for caregivers, teachers, parents and clinicians!

Not audio friendly

This is not a book to listen to on Audible to many worksheets and things to be able to follow along auditory. I would suggest getting the physical book if you are interested in reading this I found it not to be helpful.

fantastic book with great info but buy the book

this book is very informative, thorough, and narrated very well. i recommend buying the actual book because you really need the worksheets. it's nice to have this book playing while getting things done around the house, but if you can't do the suggested exercises you're really missing out.
