The Power of Showing Up

by Daniel J. Siegel


Being a parent is tough. Many wonder how they ever keep up. When work and life get in the way, it can be hard to spend quality time with them, and make sure their needs are met. Even despite the struggle, most parents want to take the best care of their kids so they grow up healthy and happy.

Fortunately, Tina Bryson and Daniel Siegel wrote The Power of Showing Up: How Parental Presence Shapes Who Our Kids Become and How Their Brains Get Wired to help. It will teach you how to be there for your kids, in more ways than just being physically present, so that they grow up to be confident and resilient.
