Mindsight is a great book for those looking for a deeper looking into how our brains work.  Daniel Siegel provides insights and tools to better understand the brain and promote emotional wellness.  Though this isn’t specifically for parents it is a great life book and so we recommend it for parents, educators, and all leaders!

Key Points:

  • Information and images really deepen learning.
  • Brains are plastic throughout our lives, not just during childhood.
  • This book is all about understanding your brain and how you can build mental wellness.


  • Changing your brain takes hard work!
  • This practice will be enhanced if you don’t just read but actually practice it in a community.
