The Power of Showing Up: How parental presence shapes who our kids become and how their brains get wired By: Tina Payne Bryson, Daniel J. Siegel

If you’re a parent or involved with children on a daily basis, you’ll know that raising children is one of the greatest challenges anyone can face. However, with their book, The Power of Showing Up, Tina Payne Bryson and Daniel J. Siegel remind you that the most important thing you can do is very simple; just show up. With charm and care, Bryson and Siegel explain how to show up physically and emotionally for children and the difference it can make in their lives. Using impeccable research and clear anecdotes, the book’s authors explain that children need the ‘four S’s’ to grow into happy and functioning adults. The Power of Showing Up teaches not only why these S’s are so important but how you can implement them on a day to day basis. Never patronising nor judgmental, The Power of Showing Up is a must for all parents, teachers and childcare workers.
