Parenting from the Inside Out
BY DANIEL J. SIEGEL AND MARY HARTZELL
Daniel Siegel, psychiatrist and professor at UCLA School of Medicine, has written a number of popular science-based parenting books. Parenting from the Inside Out is one of his most well-known work.
This book explains why we tend to parent the way we were parented. Our childhood affects how we parent no matter how much we want to deny the links. When nothing seems to work, when your child is not responding to any conventional methods, it’s time for parents to look inward.
We can self-examine our childhood and family history to gain self-understanding and become better parents. Even for those who have had a happy childhood, they may still have unresolved issues that prevent them from being the best parents they can be. This book will help us all work through our childhood issues.
