Dr. Tina Payne Bryson is the author of the Bottom Line for Baby and co-author (with Dan Siegel) of two New York Times Best Sellers—The Whole-Brain Child and No-Drama Discipline—each of which has been translated into over fifty languages, as well as The Yes Brain and The Power of Showing Up. She is the Founder and Executive Director of The Center for Connection, a multidisciplinary clinical practice in Southern California.
Dr. Bryson keynotes conferences and conducts workshops for parents, educators, and clinicians all over the world, and she frequently consults with schools, businesses, and other organizations. An LCSW, Tina is a graduate of Baylor University with a Ph.D. from USC. The most important part of her bio, she says, is that she’s a mom to her three boys.
In this interview, we discuss Dr Bryson’s new book – The Bottom Line for Baby – which is based on her research and extensive knowledge. We explore some of the things parents get judged for, but that science actually says are fine, as well as some of those myths most parents believe that the science says we shouldn’t believe. It was also an ideal opportunity to get some tips and strategies for those times when parents and carers may not be on the same page when it comes to some of the decisions you may have to make about babies.
