The Power of Showing Up

Parenting is not easy. Showing up is. Join best selling author, Tina Payne Bryson, as she explains it doesn’t take a lot of time, energy, or money. Instead, showing up means offering a quality of presence. Tina offers a positive and hopeful message to parents, encouraging us to be more forgiving and generous with ourselves in order to show up for our children in the best possible way.

One of the very best scientific predictors for how any child turns out—in terms of happiness, academic success, leadership skills, and meaningful relationships—is whether at least one adult in their life has consistently shown up for them. In an age of scheduling demands and digital distractions, showing up for your child might sound like a tall order. But bestselling author Tina Payne Bryson will reassuringly explain, it doesn’t take a lot of time, energy, or money. Instead, showing up means offering a quality of presence. And it’s simple to provide once you understand the four building blocks of a child’s healthy development.

Tina Payne Bryson, Ph.D., is the co-author, of two New York Times bestsellers, The Whole-Brain Child and No-Drama Discipline. She is the founder of the Center for Connection. She is a licensed clinical social worker, providing pediatric and adolescent psychotherapy and parenting consultations. Dr. Bryson earned her Ph.D. from the University of Southern California and lives in Los Angeles with her husband and three children.
