Rec’s and Reviews: New Parenting Book!

written by Alexandra Wade


The cover of "No-Drama Discipline."

Daniel J. Siegel and Tina Payne Bryson, the team behind The Whole-Brain Child, want to make discipline more effective for both parents and children. Their brand new book, No-Drama Discipline, provides strategies for dealing with all type of misbehavior without causing a scene. It features tips for guiding your child through a tantrum, candid stories, and fun illustrations that bring the authors’ suggestions to life, all highlighting the link between the way parents react to misbehavior and neurological development in children.

Published on Sept. 23, this book aims to teach parents “how to work with your child’s developing mind, peacefully resolve conflicts, and inspire happiness and strengthen resilience in everyone in the family.”
