Editorial Reviews

Review

“Daniel Siegel and Tina Payne Bryson have spun a miracle—The Power of Showing Up is the ultimate guide to family reconnection. Clear, profound, and charmingly-illustrated, it unravels the challenges of modern parenting and reveals the simple truths about what children really need from the adults in their lives.”—Wendy Mogel, Ph.D., New York Times bestselling author of The Blessing of a Skinned Knee and The Blessing of a B Minus
 

“Parenting at this moment in time and at today’s pace feels hard. But that makes it all that much more important that we try to simplify the process of parenting and not put quite so much pressure on our own parenting shoulders. 
The Power of Showing Up will help you do just that. Siegel and Payne Bryson are master teachers when it comes to helping parents react and respond to kids in ways that communicate ‘I hear you.’ They articulate and quantify how to make your parenting easier—and better!”—Christine Carter, Ph.D., author of Raising Happiness
 
“Daniel Siegel and Tina Payne Bryson have written their best book yet—and that is saying a lot. They have distilled their parenting wisdom—based on neuroscience research and a deep empathy for children’s needs—into a profound concept: showing up. It is one of those great ideas that seems so obvious—but only after someone has shown it to you and spelled it out clearly. Best of all, Siegel and Payne Bryson ‘show up’ for the reader of this book. They know parents, know their fears and anxieties, hopes and dreams, and they provide an accessible path to seeing and soothing children and providing them with safety and security.”
—Lawrence J. Cohen, Ph.D., author of Playful Parenting
 
“An essential book for every parent who yearns to be more effective and present and, simply, better. It shows us that we don’t have to be perfect, but we can make our kids feel more secure and confident (now and in the future) if we are present and aware as parents. This important book gives us the steps to follow to make this happen.”
—Harold S. Koplewicz, M.D., president, Child Mind Institute
 
“Rarely does a book so broad and deep of subject give you the small doable steps to find your way to success, confidence, and connection with your children.  
The Power of Showing Up brings to life the Zulu greeting ‘Sawubona’ (I see you) and the refrain ‘Ngikhona’ (I am here), which are essential for the parent-child connection.”—Kim John Payne, author of Simplicity Parenting and The Soul of Discipline

“Drs. Siegel and Payne Bryson teach us how a parent can make a child feel safe, seen, soothed, and secure, even if he or she didn’t have that in their own childhoods.”
—Michael Thompson, Ph.D., co-author of the New York Times bestselling classic Raising Cain

“Siegel and Bryson provide relatable real world examples and . . . specific advice for handling various situations. . . . Parents looking for solid research delivered in an accessible manner will find Siegel and Bryson getting the job done well yet again.”

5.0 out of 5 stars It’s so important to BE THERE!
Reviewed in the United States on October 14, 2019
I found this book incredibly interesting. I was able to read it and look at it from both an adult child perspective and that of a parent of four children. My parents were detached, but “History is not destiny”. I was able to make sense of childhood and that type of parenting. I remember wanting my own family to love and one that would love me and be there for me. I broke the cycle. I raised my children by being there. Not just a physical presence, but an emotional one as well. I wanted them to feel safe, soothed and secured. It was interesting to read that in this book! It was a choice I made many years ago. It’s nice to see it has made them all strong,
Successful and secure. Your past doesn’t define you, but there are ways to shape and mold your little people.
Excellent points throughout the book!
