Parenting from the Inside Out


The distress is palpable when you say something to your kid that sounds as if it came straight out of your parents’ mouth. To cope, Boston Mamas’ contributing therapist Adelaide Smith, MSW, highly recommends Siegel & Hartzell’s (2004) Parenting from the Inside Out (regularly $14.95; currently on sale for $10.17 at Amazon). Siegel and Hartzell (a child psychiatrist and an early childhood expert, respectively) review findings in neurobiology and attachment research; they explain how interpersonal relationships impact brain development, and offer practical suggestions to forming a deeper understanding of one’s life stories, which will help parents raise compassionate and resilient children.
