Body-Brain Parenting

Let’s redefine what “bad behavior” in childhood really means. So often, we view challenging behavior as a sign of our own shortcomings as parents, but our episode today explains that most difficult behaviors are actually a neurological response to stress, fear and/or discomfort.

What if we could figure out how to manage the behavior by learning more about the way the nervous system operates? Today, I am thrilled to be talking to Dr. Mona Delahooke about her new book, Brain-Body Parenting: How to Stop Managing Behaviors and Start Raising Joyful, Resilient Kids. In her book, she delves deep into the idea of personalizing the approach based on each unique child. ¬†And spoiler alert, it’s a lot simpler than it sounds.
