`Daniel Siegel and Mary Hartzell have quite deftly managed to translate highly complex neuroscientific and psychological matters into lay strategies for effective parenting. This is truly a must-read book for all parents and those aspiring to become parents.' -Marilyn B. Benoit, MD, president of American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry `Parenting from the Inside Out is for anyone committed to a continued and deeper understanding of the human psyche and to looking beyond the presentational self to what is really motivating us. It is applicable to all of our interpersonal relationships, but most especially to our most treasured one: the one with our children.' -Michelle Pfeiffer `Parenting from the Inside Out is a must-have for any parent. Mary Hartzell has helped me immeasurably in my quest to be the best possible parent I can be.' -Gwyneth Paltrow, Goop `This book uniquely pairs the clinical experience of a psychiatrist with the deep wisdom of a nursery school teacher. Together Siegel and Hartzell delicately peel back the many layers of parenting to reveal the pure nature of the relationship at its core.' -Neal Halfon, MD, MPH, professor of pediatrics, UCLA, and editor of Child Rearing in America
