“The Power of Showing Up: How Parental Presence Shapes Who Our Kids Become and How Their Brains Get Wired” by Dan Siegel, M.D. and Tina Payne Bryson, Ph.D.


One of the very best scientific predictors for how any child turns out—in terms of happiness, academic success, leadership skills, and meaningful relationships—is whether at least one adult in their life has consistently shown up for them.  Using the latest brain and attachment research, Siegel and Payne demonstrate that showing up is a quality of presence that involves what they call “The Four S’s”:  Safe, Seen, Soothed and Secure.  This book offers powerful ways to build trust and help create a healthy, resilient child.
