Book Description

April 26 2004
How many parents have found themselves thinking: I can't believe I just said to my child the very thing my parents used to say to me! Am I just destined to repeat the mistakes of my parents? In Parenting from the Inside Out, child psychiatrist Daniel J. Siegel, M.D., and early childhood expert Mary Hartzell, M.Ed., explore the extent to which our childhood experiences actually do shape the way we parent. Drawing upon stunning new findings in neurobiology and attachment research, they explain how interpersonal relationships directly impact the development of the brain, and offer parents a step-by-step approach to forming a deeper understanding of their own life stories, which will help them raise compassionate and resilient children.

Born out of a series of parents' workshops that combined Siegel's cutting-edge research on how communication impacts brain development with Hartzell's thirty years of experience as a child-development specialist and parent educator, Parenting from the Inside Out guides parents through creating the necessary foundations for loving and secure relationships with their children.

"Mary Hartzell has helped me immeasurably in my quest to be the best possible parent I can be (I often fail). Her research and hands-on practice both as a teacher, and as the director of First Presbyterian Nursery School in Santa Monica, have enabled her to write and create some of the most invaluable resources for parents. Her book, Parenting from the Inside Out, is a must-have for any parent...I gave a friend of mine a copy of Parenting... and she said, "This book is changing my life. I like my kids again."

It's impossible to say something can change your life without slipping into cliche-land, but this book is all about the possibility of change and the crux of life: brain, to mind, to heart, and though the book is too grounded in science to say it, to soul; it's the neurology behind the fact that mind is love; but more than anything the ideas in this book are simply fascinating and useful! I have read other work by Dan Siegel and each time I revisit his sythesis of brain science, attachment theory and a warm-hearted psychiatrist's view of Buber's I-Thou, I am filled with new thoughts and emotions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Start May 31 2009
By Mel
Being that I was raised by people who should never have had kids, this book really opened my eyes in many ways. I am happy with the purchase. This is definalty one of those books that should be a required reading for all parents. A lot of information on the human mind and its responce to various types of parenting.

Very good read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book... March 19 2010
This book provides insights that will be helpful for anyone who has ever been a child. It is very accessible for the general reader and will be of interest to those wanting to learn more about the intimate relationship between parents and children and how these early relationships can influence our own parenting abilities and relating closely to others. As a psychologist, one of the few books I recommend to my clients.

5.0 out of 5 stars Help yourself, help your kids! Dec 1 2011
I found this book explained so much of my own childhood that not only do I expect it to help with my parenting skills but also I have understood more and more about how my childhood has affected me as an adult. I strongly recommend this book to anyone especially those considering being a parent but this insight this book offers is suitable for ANYONE, parent or not.
