02 Jan Being Well Podcast: The Power of Showing Up
Everyone wants to be a good friend, and a great parent. Parenting isn’t easy, but there might be some easy ways to simplify the big ideas and boil it down to a few core concepts. Today, Dr. Tina Payne Bryson joins the show to share how we can become better friends, parents, and people.
Dr. Bryson is the bestselling author of The Whole Brain Child, No-Drama Discipline, and The Yes Brain. She’s also the co-author of a new book The Power of Showing Up: How Parental Presence Shapes Who Our Kids Become and How Their Brains Get Wired with Dr. Daniel Siegel.
She’s also the Founder and Executive Director of The Center for Connection, and of The Play Strong Institute, a center devoted to the study, research, and practice of play therapy through a neurodevelopmental lens. She’s made regular appearances in Time, The New York Times, and The Huffington Post, as well as on shows like “Good Morning America.”
