Michael Bortolotto's moving tale of learning to overcome the challenges of riding his tricycle as a toddler is not a book for children alone. Rather it is an insight into parenting, teaching, coaching, and any other life experience where we are called upon to raise children. Within this book is a lesson for the classroom, the hockey rink, the soccer field, homework time, the dinner table and all the places where we observe our children's exploration for growth. Places where as vicarious adults our needs for control, feelings of success through our children's experience, and own self-worth can flourish unchecked.

Abstract
When facing contentious issues such as screen time, food choices, and bedtime, children often act out or shut down, responding with reactivity instead of receptivity. This is what New York Times bestselling authors Daniel J. Siegel and Tina Payne Bryson call a No Brain response. But our kids can be taught to approach life with openness and curiosity. When kids work from a Yes Brain, they?re more willing to take chances and explore. They?re more curious and imaginative. They?re better at relationships and handling adversity. In The Yes Brain, the authors give parents skills, scripts, and activities to bring kids of all ages into the beneficial ?yes? state.
