A few weeks ago, Optimom and I attended an event in Toronto hosted by Hincks Dellcrest where Dr Dan Siegel was speaking of his newest book called “Brainstorm: the Power and Purpose of the Teenage Brain“. We loved the event and were both nodding our heads constantly, agreeing with everything he was saying. Three of my favourite quotes from the evening:
- “There is no such thing as perfect parenting but try mindful parenting. Don’t beat yourself up. Be kind to you.”
- “Early intervention is not a luxury…it’s a necessity”
- “Schools need to learn how to embrace an adolescents passion/essence.”
Some exciting news though, is that Hincks Dellcrest is giving away one of Dr Siegel’s “Brainstorm: the Power and Purpose of the Teenage Brain” book to one of my Canadian followers.
