Editorial Reviews


"I adore this book! Brain-Body Parenting updates outdated lenses, offering powerful, practical ways think about and respond to children. Dr. Delahooke shows caregivers how to understand children’s emotions and behaviors, and guides us to respond in ways that are transformative both in the challenging moments, and in our child’s development over time. Parents, teachers, grandparents, and the children they love, will all be deeply impacted by this beautiful book." -- Tina Payne Bryson, LCSW, Ph.D., New York Times bestselling co-author of The Whole-Brain Child No-Drama Discipline, and author of The Bottom Line for Baby

Brain-Body Parenting Dr. Delahooke expands on her paradigm shifting-model of treating children with disruptive behaviors. In contrast to prevailing models that dominate parenting manuals and educational arenas, Dr. Delahooke provides a more compassionate approach that addresses the needs of a child's nervous system and offers insightful examples for readers to rethink and restructure their parenting. This book is a game-changer. -- Dr. Stephen Porges, author of The Polyvagal Theory

Brain-Body Parenting is an essential guide for parents craving a deeper understanding of their child’s needs, as well as their own. Drawing on insight from her decades of experience as a clinician and mother of three, Delahooke shows readers how to be better detectives when interpreting their child’s signals and how to apply attuned, responsive care to specifics like sleep, play, and skill development. This book is a gold mine of advice." -- Janet Lansbury, bestselling author of No Bad Kids and host of Unruffled

"Dr. Mona Delahooke's latest book
Brain-Body Parenting is an incredible, much needed gift to the parenting world. In her gentle, wise way she explains how our little children can struggle with learning how to navigate life and relationships. She not only shows the why, she shares so many stories of how parents can support their little ones to grow and thrive. This brilliant book needs to be in every home, early childhood setting and primary school.” -- Maggie Dent, bestselling author of From Boys to Men and host of the Parental As Anything podcast

“In this revolutionary book, Dr. Mona Delahooke shares powerful insights and groundbreaking research for understanding a child's challenging behavior through the lens of neuroscience and polyvagal theory. With clarity, compassion, and easy to apply strategies, she offers parents and professionals a path to move children toward self-regulation, balance and stability. An absolute a must read.”  --
Susan Stiffelman, MFT, author of Parenting Without Power Struggles

Brain-Body Parenting, Mona Delahooke translates the latest relational neuroscience research into easily readable and actionable support for parents, amplifying the importance of attuned and loving parent-child relationships. I will be recommending this book to every parent who has at times struggled with their child’s out of control behavior, or their own—which is everyone!” -- Dr. Laura Markham, author of Peaceful Parent, Happy Kids and founder of Aha! Parenting

“This book offers a radically effective approach to parenting that will turn everything you think you know upside-down. Firmly rooted in science but also practical and insightful,
Brain-Body Parenting provides an easy-to-follow pathway for parents to help their children thrive without losing themselves in the process.” -- Kristin Neff, PhD, Author of Self-Compassion and Fierce Self-Compassion

“Mona Delahooke speaks to parents like no other as she responds to their concerns and questions with understanding and insight. Her ability to translate and integrate neuroscience with body signaling and a child's emotional experience unravels the mystery of behaviors, offering an exquisite integration of mind, body, and heart. Dr. Delahooke’s knowledge of behavior and development is a moving force that will continue to enhance all we do as parents and clinicians” --
Serena Wieder, Ph.D., clinical director of Profectum Foundation and co-creator of the DIR model

Brain-Body Parenting, Mona Delahooke shares extensive knowledge about how children feel, think and act, using a remarkably astute lens to reveal how and why the nervous system affects children’s behaviors and attitudes. With thought-provoking examples and scientific underpinnings, Delahooke provides myriad strategies for fortifying parent-child relationships with love, compassion, and understanding. This book is destined to become a ground-breaking classic!” -- Joanne Foster, Ed.D., gifted education specialist and author of ABCs of Raising Smarter Kids

"A fascinating and practical look at how neurobiology can be applied to parenting challenges." --
Julia Reffner, Library Journal  --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Gold Standard
Reviewed in the United States on April 19, 2022
This is my first introduction to Dr. Delahooke and she has created a parenting guide for generations to come. I have thank my daughter for pointing me to Mona. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and I devoured the book in short order. I am now sharing its truths with my adult clients in therapy. I have for some time had a mandatory policy that parents attend the first 3 to 5 sessions with their children and “Brain Body Parenting” confirms and reaffirms this necessary practice. Children do not and cannot get better alone and it is scandalous to make the most immature brain in the room the most responsible for self regulation. Talk about adding to a child’s stress and subtracting from their body budget! This book is mandatory reading for all my parents. It is common sense yet many parents are perplexed by this “new” form of parenting. Brain Body Parenting is what parenting is intended to be.
