How parents and educators can spark the “yes” state in a child’s developing brain, a way to encourage intellectual curiosity and insightfulness, resilience, empathy, and authentic happiness, by the bestselling authors of The Whole Brain Child and No-Drama Discipline.

The brain is either in a reactive (no) state, which makes us rigid and self-conscious, putting us on high alert for rules and consequences; OR in a receptive (yes) state, which is what enables curiosity and creativity, and fosters resilience. Most traditional learning environments—and many parenting approaches—necessarily trigger the “no” state in children (allowing teachers and school systems to assess and manage them), but parents can nurture the mindset that leads to authentic happiness and success by supplying children with neurological counterbalancing “yes brain” experiences and interactions. By the internationally-revered and repeatedly bestselling team of Dan Siegel, MD and Tina Payne Bryson, PhD, The Yes Brain explains the underpinnings of this neurological dichotomy, and gives parents the skills, scripts, ideas and activities for igniting and wiring the “yes” state in kids of all ages.
