A game changer for me and my family. We did not think of ourselves as permissive parents however in a number of of ways we were, which lead to let's say "sub optimal outcomes". Recognising, and methods to deal with, the insidious Reactive Alien is transforming our family behaviours leading to building the all important "Executive Functions" in our children (ok, and further in ourselves too truth be told, the apple does not fall far from the tree after all). A great series of books, this one in particular a go to for many primary schools in our area and for good reason! Brilliant for parents and teachers to be on the same page and use the similar language, approach and methods for great behavioural, social and learning outcomes. Enjoying the fruits of that and staying cognitive, out with the Feelings Brain and into the Thinking Brain to use the language of the book!
