Why Carsen Gray recommends all parents read the book No-Drama Discipline
Carsen Gray is a musician hailing from Haida Gwaii, B.C. When she's not busy singing and performing, she's also focused on being a parent. The book that she's currently reading, No-Drama Discipline by Daniel J. Siegel and Tina Payne Bryson, has been a big help in developing a parenting approach.
She dropped by The Next Chapter to tell us why.
"Ever since I had my son, who's now three, I've had a passion to find a more conscious way of parenting. The authors talk about the way a child's developing brain works. When my son started having tantrums, I'd find myself feeling so overwhelmed. The book teaches you how to focus on why the child is having a tantrum.
"It focuses on how to connect with your child to calm them down in these situations. It's actually been super effective."
