Mark Brady, Ph.D. is a brain educator who has taught parents and therapists-in-training for more than 20 years. He is the author of many journal articles and books and published the popular Committed Parent blog every week.Review:
For a book to have any real power to inspire change, it has to activate the intellect and the right brain, and simultaneously touch the depths of the reader's heart. *How Parents Screw Us Up (Without Really Meaning To)* accomplishes these feats with uncommon grace and wisdom. ~ Peter T. Pearson, Ph.D. author: In Quest of the Mythical Mate --Book Cover
Ironically, this book offers one of the most positive perspectives on how human beings can arrange their internal lives and external environments to make conditions ideal for growing children's brains. Professor Brady has clearly done a lot of learning by sitting in the fire. Rather than travel down the same familiar dead-end developmental roads, we would be well-served to make ourselves the beneficiaries of his rich and wide-ranging experience. ~ Sean Hatt, Ph.D. Seattle Integrative Clinical Psychologist --Book Cover
