Publisher's Summary

"Dan Siegel and Mary Hartzell have quite deftly managed to translate highly complex neuroscientific and psychological matters into lay strategies for effective parenting." (Marilyn B. Benoit, M.D., former president, American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry).
"Parenting from the Inside Out is a must-have for any parent…I gave a friend of mine a copy and she said, 'This audiobook is changing my life. I like my kids again.'" (Gwyneth Paltrow, Goop.com).
"Together Siegel and Hartzell delicately peel back the many layers of parenting to reveal the pure nature of the relationship at its core." (Neal Halfon, M.D., MPH, professor of pediatrics, UCLA; director, UCLA Center for Healthier Children, Families & Communities, and coeditor, Child Rearing in America).
In this best-selling classic, child psychiatrist and coauthor of The Whole Brain Child, Daniel J. Siegel and early childhood expert Mary Hartzell explore the extent to which our childhood experiences shape the way we parent. Illuminating important research in the field of interpersonal neurobiology, Siegel and Hartzell explain how the parent-child relationship directly affects brain development, and offer parents a step-by-step approach to forming a deeper understanding of their own life stories to help them raise compassionate and resilient children.
Drawing on Siegel's cutting-edge research on how communication influences brain development with Hartzell's more than forty years' experience as a child development specialist and parent educator, Parenting from the Inside Out guides parents through creating the necessary foundations for loving and secure relationships with their children.
Disclaimer: This audiobook of Parenting from the Inside Out includes the new preface written by the authors' for the tenth anniversary edition. However, the audiobook is based upon the first edition of the work published in 2003, not the updated and revised edition of the audiobook.

Great content, terrible reader.

The content of this book is awesome. One of the two readers, however, is very difficult to listen to. I ended up checking this book out at the library and reading it instead.

This book should be mandatory reading for parents and non-parents.


It comes down to how people exist in each other's minds. I am not a parent. This book resonates on interpersonal relationships at all levels. Family. Work. Friends. Strangers.

The authors present compelling reasoning and simple 'homework' so that your capacity to understand others AND be understood by others is increased. I've gone through this book twice, and my life is better by an order of magnitude.

The authors present the concepts describe the theory, provide the background science and bring it home with accessible and practical examples you can follow in your own life. The content is rich, yet easily within reach.

The presentation style was difficult for me at first. It felt slow and kept me from engaging with the content. This is the reason I went through the book twice. I am very, very happy I stuck with it though. I highly recommend this book.

Great information but...

A really good set of knowledge but may be better read than listened to - the authors are brilliant in their knowledge but performance is....
