How to Help Your Child (and you) Break the Stress Cycle and Fully Engage With Life
TV Ontario's The Agenda with Steve Paikin, Tuesday January 17 at 8:00pm
Dr. Shanker will discuss the content of Self-Reg, his new book which helps parents understand the impact of excessive stress on children’s behaviour, emotions and learning, and what to do about it. Dr. Shanker’s book has helped many parents understand the difference between misbehaviour and stress behaviour and how to help their child experience the calmly focused state where learning and growth can occur. The book has sold very well since its release in June 2016 and has now been translated into German, Dutch, Korean and Polish, with further editions and translations in the works.
