More aboutThe interview

In this interview, Mona Delahooke, PhD discusses her new book, Brain-Body Parenting, and these topics in particular:

  • How the behaviors we see in our children are just a glimpse of what's going on beneath the surface
  • Why we can't just reinforce "good" behavior and discourage "bad" behavior
  • What happens we understand our children's "pathways" better
  • Why we need to understand sensory integration
  • How to reframe and better understand individual differences in temperament and neurodiversity
  • How to "S.O." ("stop" and "observe") in her model
  • Why self-care is absolutely critical in responsive parenting, even if it doesn't look how we think it might
