User reviews about the book
Not your typical parenting book
Unlike many parenting books, that seem to give you unrealistic expectations, this one however hit the nail right on the head. They even have real scenarios from parents who, too, have lost their temper when parenting. A must read for anyone with a child/children.
Amazing perspective, effective strategy, and easy to read
This is a great book to scratch the surface of brain evolvement and how different parts of the brain connect. I absolutely recommend this book to anyone who wants to lean about ABC of the brain. The whole-brain strategy is really an amazing perspective. I can't wait to try it.
The Whole-Brain Child
I really appreciated how this book was grounded in science. Not only did the principles presented make sense, but they were based in fact and the author provided practical ways to implement the principles in daily life.
I recommend this book for any parent that wants to raise children with strong social and emotional intelligence. You won't feel overwhelmed by the content, rather you will feel like you can really implement and make good changes easily.

I have only listened to a podcast with Dan and dr drew and read bits of this book but I could have used this book when my son went through major anxiety at age 5. Now he is 10 and I hope to still try these exercises in some capacities as I think he has learned to simply suppress emotion which is not what I want him to do (having done this for years myself!) as I fear it will impact him later in life. I am so excited to finally have the ah ha moment of the body being so reactive to emotion as a child. He would cry and get upset at school and the counselor would skip straight to getting him to deal with his anxiety yet we could never get him to connect anything to the anxiety nor did he understand from his left brain about this emotion. It was like going to step 5 without steps 1-4. Needless to say, therapy never worked and he simply started having less anxiety as he got older. He has some now and excited to have some new tools to work with as we move into preteen years. Yikes! Thanks dr Siegel - let's get this stuff out there please!!! Not enough psychs get this and so important in kiddos!
