The pioneering experts behind The Whole-Brain Child - Tina Payne Bryson and Daniel J. Siegel - now explore the ultimate child-raising challenge: discipline. Highlighting the fascinating link between a child’s neurological development and the way a parent reacts to misbehavior, No-Drama Discipline provides an effective, compassionate road map for dealing with tantrums, tensions, and tears—without causing a scene. Defining the true meaning of the “d” word (to instruct, not to shout or reprimand), the authors explain how to reach your child, redirect emotions, and turn a meltdown into an opportunity for growth. By doing so, the cycle of negative behavior and punishment is essentially brought to a halt, as problem solving becomes a win/win situation.

Tina is an expert at helping parents demystify the meltdowns and aggravation children face by explaining the new science of how a child's brain is wired and how it matures. She has as unusual knack for taking research and theory from various fields of science and offering it in a way that's clear, humorous and immediately helpful.
