Dr. Tina Payne Bryson, mom, Psychotherapist, Speaker, & Co-Author of The Power of Showing Up and The "Yes" Brain, and two NYT bestsellers, The Whole Brain Child and No-Drama Discipline shares what the science tells us about what we should do when our kids are going through something really difficult. In times of good, but especially in times of bad, what your kids need most from you in order to be resilient and in order to weather difficulty, is you. Imperfect you. Flawed you. Sometimes falling apart you.
