From the Inside Flap
The first parenting book to bring the science and psychology of children's behaviour together to build brain and body awareness for self-regulation and success
Self-Reg is a ground-breaking book that presents a new understanding of your child's emotions and behaviour. Leading child psychologist Dr Stuart Shanker translates his decades of research, along with his years of experience in working with children, to present a practical guide for parents to help their kids engage calmly and successfully in learning and life.
We are seeing a generation of children and teens with excessively high levels of stress and, as a result, an explosion of emotional, social, learning, behavioural and physical health problems in young people today. But few parents recognize the 'hidden stressors' that their children are struggling with: these can be physiological as well as social and emotional.
When kids are stressed and anxious, they often struggle to articulate what is troubling them and either start to misbehave, or else shut down and fail to communicate at all. This is often construed as 'bad behaviour' by parents, and treated as such. An entrenched view of child rearing is seeing our children as lacking self-control or willpower, but the real basis for these problems lies in excessive stress.
Self-regulation refers to how effectively we deal with stress and then recover. Mastering the art of self-regulation can dramatically improve a child's mood, attention, and concentration. It can help children to feel empathy and to develop the sorts of virtues that every parent knows are vital for their child's long-term well. Remarkably, self-regulation brings about profound and lasting transformation that continues to mature throughout life.
Self-Reg offers parents practical, prescriptive advice as well as concrete ways to develop their own self-regulation skills and teach their children how to do the same for optimal learning, social and emotional growth. In short, Self-Reg will give parents the confidence to help their son or daughter develop the skills and emotional strength needed to navigate the pressures of the modern world.

I started the books with a fairly intuitive understanding of self-reg and the book gave me a great depth of understanding, but it didn't help me with any techniques and this is what I need.
So, I found the book interesting but not helpful.
