The Yes Brain
Copyright :


When facing challenges, unpleasant tasks, and contentious issues, children often act out or shut down, responding with reactivity instead of receptivity. This is what New York Times bestselling authors Daniel J. Siegel and Tina Payne Bryson call a No Brain response.

But our kids can be taught to approach life with openness and curiosity. Parents can foster their children’s ability to say yes to the world and welcome all that life has to offer, even during difficult times. This is what it means to cultivate a Yes Brain.

This engaging video covers the key topics in the authors' latest book, The Yes Brain: How to Cultivate Courage, Curiosity, and Resilience in Your Child, including:

  • The four fundamentals of the Yes Brain—balance, resilience, insight, and empathy—and how to strengthen them
  • The key to knowing when kids need a gentle push out of a comfort zone vs. needing the “cushion” of safety and familiarity
  • Strategies for navigating away from negative behavioral and emotional states (aggression and withdrawal) and expanding your child’s capacity for positivity
