<p><b><i>NEW YORK TIMES </i>BESTSELLER<br /><br /> In this pioneering, practical book, Daniel J. Siegel, neuropsychiatrist and author of the bestselling <i>Mindsight</i>, and parenting expert Tina Payne Bryson offer a revolutionary approach to child rearing with twelve key strategies that foster healthy brain development, leading to calmer, happier children. The authors explain—and make accessible—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-twenties. And especially in young children, the right brain and its emotions tend to rule over the logic of the left brain. No wonder kids throw tantrums, fight, or sulk in silence. By applying these discoveries to everyday parenting, you can turn any outburst, argument, or fear into a chance to integrate your child’s brain and foster vital growth.             <br />  <br /> Complete with age-appropriate strategies for dealing with day-to-day struggles and illustrations that will help you explain these concepts to your child, <i>The Whole-Brain Child</i> shows you how to cultivate healthy emotional and intellectual development so that your children can lead balanced, meaningful, and connected lives.<br /> <b> </b><br /><i>From the Trade Paperback edition.</i>

<b><b>"Based on groundbreaking research that has the power to change the lives of countless children--and the adults who love them."</b><br /><b>--Susan Cain, author of <i>Quiet: The Power of Introverts</i>.<br /><br /></b>A book that offers hope and a pathway to success for parents, teachers, psychologists, and child development experts coping with difficult children.</b><br /><br />     In Tom Boyce's extraordinary new book, he explores the "dandelion" child (hardy, resilient, healthy), able to survive and flourish under most circumstances, and the "orchid" child (sensitive, susceptible, fragile), who, given the right support, can thrive as much as, if not more than, other children. <br />     Boyce writes of his pathfinding research as a developmental pediatrician working with troubled children in child-development research for almost four decades, and explores his major discovery that reveals how genetic make-up <i>and </i>environment shape behavior. He writes that certain variant genes can increase a person's susceptibility to depression, anxiety, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, and antisocial, sociopathic, or violent behaviors. But rather than seeing this "risk" gene as a liability, Boyce, through his daring research, has recast the way we think of human frailty, and has shown that while these "bad" genes can create problems, they can also, <i>in the right setting and the right environment</i>, result in producing children who not only do better than before but far exceed their peers. Orchid children, Boyce makes clear, are not failed dandelions; they are a different category of child, with special sensitivities and strengths, and need to be nurtured and taught in special ways. And in <i>The Orchid and the Dandelion</i>, Boyce shows us how to understand these children for their unique sensibilities, their considerable challenges, their remarkable gifts.

<b><i>NEW YORK TIMES</i> BESTSELLER • An urgently needed guide to the alarming increase in anxiety and stress experienced by girls from elementary school through college, from the author of <i>Untangled</i></b><br /><br /><b>“An invaluable read for anyone who has girls, works with girls, or cares about girls—for everyone!”—Claire Shipman, author of <i>The Confidence Code </i>and <i>The Confidence Code for Girls</i></b><br /><br /> Though anxiety has risen among young people overall, studies confirm that it has skyrocketed in girls. Research finds that the number of girls who said that they often felt nervous, worried, or fearful jumped 55 percent from 2009 to 2014, while the comparable number for adolescent boys has remained unchanged. As a clinical psychologist who specializes in working with girls, Lisa Damour, Ph.D., has witnessed this rising tide of stress and anxiety in her own research, in private practice, and in the all-girls’ school where she consults. She knew this had to be the topic of her new book.<br /><br /> In the engaging, anecdotal style and reassuring tone that won over thousands of readers of her first book,<i> Untangled</i>, Damour starts by addressing the facts about psychological pressure. She explains the surprising and underappreciated <i>value </i>of stress and anxiety: that stress can helpfully stretch us beyond our comfort zones, and anxiety can play a key role in keeping girls safe. When we emphasize the <i>benefits</i> of stress and anxiety, we can help our daughters take them in stride.<br /><br /> But no parents want their daughter to suffer from emotional overload, so Damour then turns to the many facets of girls’ lives where tension takes hold: their interactions at home, pressures at school, social anxiety among other girls and among boys, and their lives online. As readers move through the layers of girls’ lives, they’ll learn about the critical steps that adults can take to shield their daughters from the toxic pressures to which our culture—including we, as parents—subjects girls.<br /><br /> Readers who know Damour from <i>Untangled</i> or the <i>New York Times,</i> or from her regular appearances on <i>CBS News,</i> will be drawn to this important new contribution to understanding and supporting today’s girls.<br /><br /><b>Praise for <i>Under Pressure</i></b><br /><br /> “Truly a must-read for parents, teachers, coaches, and mentors wanting to help girls along the path to adulthood.”<b>—Julie Lythcott-Haims, <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author of <i>How to Raise an Adult</i> </b>

<p><b>An emotional, revealing memoir of one family’s life in seclusion—and the love, strength, and faith it took to save it.</b></p><p>Seahawks star running back Curt Warner and his wife, Ana, were prominent figures in Seattle in the early 1990s. When they dropped from the public eye after Curt’s retirement, everyone assumed it was for a simpler life. But the reality behind their seclusion was a secret they hid from even their closest friends: their twins, Austin and Christian, had been diagnosed with severe autism. What followed was a painful struggle to hold their family and their marriage together in a home filled with chaos, emotional exhaustion, and constant fear for the safety of their unpredictable but beloved boys.</p><p>Now, after years of silence, the Warners share their inspiring journey from stardom and success to heartbreaking self-imposed isolation. Above all, it’s a story of the life-changing truth that love for family and each other—no matter how challenged—is the path to healing and peace.</p><p><i>The Warner Boys</i> is the true story of a family who fought for their children and how they grew stronger against all odds.</p>
