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. 
Whether you’re a parent, grandparent, teacher, therapist, or other significant caregiver in a child’s life, we’ve written this book for you. We’ll use the word “parent” throughout, but we’re talking to
anyone doing the crucial work of raising, supporting, and nurturing kids. Our goal is to teach you how to use your everyday interactions as opportunities to help you and the children you care for both survive and thrive. Though much of what you’ll read can be creatively tailored for teens—in fact, we plan to write a followup that does just that—this book focuses on the years from birth to
twelve, centering especially on toddlers, school-age kids, and preteens.
