12 strategies to Nurture Your Child's Developing Mind, Survive Everyday Parenting Struggles, and Help Your Family Thrive by Daniel Siegal

Daniel Siegal suggest 12 easy strategies in his book 'The Whole Brain Child' that use integration (differentiation between parts of the brain and then linking it) as the basis for good behaviour.

The 12 strategies are:
1: Connect and Redirect: Connect emotionally, 'tune in' to your child, align your state with theirs and then redirect. eg. instead of saying 'stop shouting' rather say ' I understand that you feel frustrated about... lets go and do..'

2: Name It To Tame It: Taming emotions through storytelling. Just by naming an emotion the amygdala (emotional brain) calms down

3: Engage, Don't Enrage: Appeal to logic and planning, not to emotion

4: Use It Or Lose It: Encourage planning, thinking, and other left-brain activities which relates to the neuroplastic effects of practise

5: Move It Or Lose It: Body over mind method to restore balance

6: Use The Remote Of The Mind: Teaching your child to view his/her memories while maintaining control. Eg. use the volume control to turn down an emotion

7: Remember To Remember: Talking about events and children who retell a story focus on continious attention which activates the hippocampus that integrates memory

8: Let The Clouds of Emotion Roll By: Teaching your kids about temporary feelings

9: SIFT: Using sensation, image, feeling, and thought to help your child understand

10: Exercise Mindsight: Focusing with your mind

11: Increase The Family Fun Factor: The science behind building in fun family times

12: Connect Through Conflict: Turning conflict into opportunity

I needed to create you this bit of note to finally give thanks as before for your lovely methods you have documented at this time. It has been really unbelievably open-handed of people like you to allow openly all some people would have distributed as an e-book to generate some profit on their own, particularly given that you could possibly have tried it if you ever wanted. These creative ideas in addition acted as the great way to fully grasp that other people online have the same dreams just like my very own to figure out a little more when considering this condition. I believe there are many more pleasurable moments up front for folks who browse through your blog post.
