Happy 100th episode to the Parent Footprint podcast!  


We have a very special guest for our 100th episode:  Dr. Dan welcomes back the only guest who has appeared on the Parent Footprint podcast three (!) times: bestselling author and parenting expert Dr. Tina Payne Bryson -- the perfect colleague to help Dr. Dan celebrate his 100-episode milestone.


Today Dr. Dan and Dr. Bryson focus on her newest book The Bottom Line for Baby as well as the timely The Power of Showing Up (co-authored with Dan Siegel) and her pioneering work with brain-based parenting.


Dr. Dan and Dr. Bryson tackle compelling topics including:

  • Making sense of our own parenting history 
  • Attachment in parenting (based on the “4 S” rules that kids feel Safe, Seen, Soothed, Secure)
  • Why the parenting concept of “empowering yourself with knowledge” really is the key to all parenting (along with trusting yourself and showing up for your child)
  • When parents practice awareness then they have a choice in how they parent in any moment (Dr. Bryon’s advice:  pay attention on purpose!)
  • The importance of parents being a safe harbor instead of a storm for our kids
  • Tina’s third inspiring Parent Footprint Moment 


Tina Payne Bryson is a psychotherapist and the Founder/Executive Director of The Center for Connection, a multidisciplinary clinical practice, and of the Play Strong Institute, a center devoted to the study, research, and practice of play therapy through a neurodevelopmental lens.  In addition, Dr. Bryson keynotes conferences and conducts workshops for kids, parents, educators, clinicians, and industry leaders all over the world, and she makes frequent media appearances for media such as TIME, “Good Morning America,” Huffington Post, Redbook, The New York Times, and Real Simple.  


Dr. Tina Payne Bryson is also co-author (with Dan Siegel) of The Yes Brain as well as two New York Times bestsellers -- The Whole-Brain Child and No-Drama Discipline -- each of which has been translated into over forty languages.  Dr. Bryson is a graduate of Baylor University and earned her LCSW and Ph.D. from the University of Southern California, where her research explored attachment science, child rearing theory, and the emerging field of interpersonal neurobiology.  Finally, Tina emphasizes that before she’s a parenting educator, or a researcher, she’s a mom.  She limits her clinical practice and speaking engagements so that she can spend time with her family.  Alongside her husband of 25 years, parenting her three boys is what makes her happiest.
