The Whole-Brain Child – Tina Payne Bryson

The Whole-Brain Child: 12 Revolutionary Strategies to Nurture Your Child’s Developing Mind, Survive Everyday Parenting Struggles, and Help Your Family Thrive

by Tina Payne Bryson
I thought there was some great ideas that I will definitely implement once my son is older. This book is for parents with a child at least 2 years of age.

I found this to be really repetitive and I know it’s not completely their fault because the subject at hand is “the whole brain”. But if I had to read “upstairs brain” or “downstairs brain” one more time I was going to lose my mind! (Yes, the pun is intended)

Overall, I would recommend this book, but only the cheat sheets in the back are worth reading. The Refrigerator Guide and the Steps by Ages are all you need to know. It condenses the entire book into a couple of pages and you don’t have to deal with the monotonous task of getting through some of those chapters.

I don’t mean to be over critical of this book, because there are great strategies that I will definitely put into practice. But I definitely flip to the end of the book and save yourself some time.
