When facing challenges, unpleasant tasks, and contentious
issues such as homework, screen time, food choices, and
bedtime, 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.
When kids work from a Yes Brain, they’re more willing to
take chances and explore. They’re more curious and
imaginative, less worried about making mistakes. They’re
better at relationships and more flexible and resilient
when it comes to handling adversity and big feelings.
They work from a clear internal compass that directs
their decisions, as well as the way they treat others.
Guided by their Yes Brain, they become more open,
creative, and resilient.
In The Yes Brain, the authors give parents skills,
scripts, ideas, and activities to bring kids of all ages
into the overwhelmingly beneficial “yes” state. You’ll
• the four fundamentals of the Yes Brain—balance,
resilience, insight, and empathy—and how to strengthen
• the key to knowing when kids need a gentle push out of
a comfort zone vs. needing the “cushion” of safety and
• strategies for navigating away from negative behavioral
and emotional states (aggression and withdrawal) and
expanding your child’s capacity for positivity
With inspirational anecdotes, fun and helpful
illustrations, and a handy Yes Brain Refrigerator Sheet
to keep your family on point, The Yes Brain is an
essential tool for nurturing positive potential and
keeping your child’s inner spark glowing and growing
strong—and gifting your children with a life of rich
relational connections, meaningful interactions with the
world, and emotional equanimity.
