B 96717B 96717 Brain-Based Parenting: The Neuroscience of Caregiving for Healthy Attachment
Grade Lvl: T Author: Hughes, Daniel A / Baylin, Jonathan
Length: 252 Copyright: 2012

A guide for parents on how to change their brain in order to improve their parenting skills, ultimately helping their children's brains as well. In this exploration of the brain mechanisms behind healthy caregiving, attachment specialist Daniel A. Hughes and veteran clinical psychologist Jonathan Baylin guide readers through the intricate web of neuronal processes, hormones, and chemicals that drive―and sometimes thwart―our caregiving impulses, uncovering the mysteries of the parental brain. The biggest challenge to parents, Hughes and Baylin explain, is learning how to regulate emotions that arise―feeling them deeply and honestly while staying grounded and aware enough to preserve the parent–child relationship. Stress, which can lead to “blocked” or dysfunctional care, can impede the brain’s inherent caregiving processes and negatively impact a person's ability to do this. Learning to be a “good parent” is contingent upon learning how to manage this stress, understand its brain-based cues, and respond in a way that will set the brain back on track. To this end, Hughes and Baylin define five major “systems” of caregiving as they’re linked to the brain, explaining how they operate when parenting is strong and what happens when good parenting is compromised or “blocked.” Emotions in children.
