'The Whole Brain Child: 12 revolutionary strategies to nurture your child's developing mind, survive everyday parenting struggles, and help your family thrive' 

by Daniel Siegel MD and Tina Payne Bryson PhD

Your toddler throws a tantrum in the middle of a store. Your preschooler refuses to get dressed... Do children conspire to make their parents' lives endlessly challenging? No — it's just their developing brain calling the shots!

In this pioneering, practical book, Daniel J. Siegel, neuropsychiatrist and parenting expert Tina Payne Bryson demystify the meltdowns and aggravation, explaining the new science of how a child's brain is wired and how it matures. The 'upstairs brain', which makes decisions and balances emotions, is under construction until the mid-20s. And especially in young children, the right brain and its emotions tend to rule over the logic of the left brain.

'How to Talk So Little Kids Will Listen' By Joanna Faber and Julie King

What do you do with a little kid who…won’t brush her teeth…screams in his car seat…pinches the baby...refuses to eat vegetables…throws books in the library...runs rampant in the supermarket? Organized according to common challenges and conflicts, this book is an essential emergency first-aid manual of communication strategies, including a chapter that addresses the special needs of children with sensory processing and autism spectrum disorders.

'The Explosive Child' By Dr Ross Greene

A groundbreaking approach to understanding and parenting children who frequently exhibit severe fits of temper and other intractable behaviors, from a distinguished clinician and pioneer in this field.
