- By: Daniel J. Siegel, Tina Payne Bryson
- Narrated by: Daniel J. Siegel, Tina Payne Bryson

Highlighting the fascinating link between a child’s neurological development and the way a parent reacts to misbehavior, No-Drama Discipline provides an effective, compassionate road map for dealing with tantrums, tensions, and tears - without causing a scene. Defining the true meaning of the “d” word (to instruct, not to shout or reprimand), the authors explain how to reach your child, redirect emotions, and turn a meltdown into an opportunity for growth.

A must for every parent
I found this book after not being able to sit down and read the whole brain child. I listened to it in the car, on walks, when my son was napping and every chance I could get. I got this book because my 2.5 year old son was biting, scratching and throwing epic tantrums that made me lose it every single time. The result was anger, wild emotions, lack of discipline, lack of growth, exhaustion and fear. This is how I grew up and didn't want my son to experience the same. In reading this book and taking the advice we have had a complete 360. My son trusts me, is calmer, more open to communication. I am calmer and more equipped and confident in my role as a parent. This book he also helped me have a better relationship with my husband whom I often treat like a misbehaving child. It's opened liens of communication between us and made me think about how I talk to him. Highly recommended for parents with kids of any age.

After 20 years spent mastering the art of dressmaking at couture houses in Paris, Tilly Dunnage returns to the small Australian town she was banished from as a child. She plans only to check on her ailing mother and leave. But Tilly decides to stay, and though she is still an outcast, her lush, exquisite dresses prove irresistible to the prim women of Dungatar.

Yes but had to break it up between dropping my son off to daycare and walks.
