We hope you are all safe and sincerely apologize for any inconvenience the cancellation may have caused.  We are pleased to announce the new date for The Yes Brain to the registrants, in advance, and kindly ask you to re-register.

From the authors of The Whole-Brain Child and No-Drama Discipline, an indispensable guide to unlocking your child’s innate capacity for positive thinking.

When facing challenges, unpleasant tasks, and contentious issues such as homework, screen time, food choices, and bedtime, children often act out or shut down, responding with reactivity instead of receptivity. This is what The New York Times bestselling authors Daniel J. Siegel, M.D. and Tina Payne Bryson, Ph.D., call a "No Brain" response. But our kids can be taught to approach life with openness and curiosity. Parents can foster their children’s ability to say yes to the world and welcome all that life has to offer, even during difficult times. This is what it means to cultivate a "Yes Brain".

When kids work from a "Yes Brain", they’re more willing to take chances and explore. They’re more curious and imaginative, less worried about making mistakes. They’re better at relationships and more flexible and resilient when it comes to handling adversity and big feelings. They work from a clear internal compass that directs their decisions, as well as the way they treat others. Guided by their "Yes Brain", they become more open, creative, and resilient.
