Back on Track: A Practical Guide to Help Kids of All Ages Thrive <— JUST WENT LIVE THIS WEEK!! And to celebrate this release, the author is today’s newsletter sponsor!
Dr. Rebecca Jackson (who’s also a fellow reader here on the blog) sent me this heartfelt message about her book:
First of all, thank you for all of the time you put into your lists, reviews and shares. I’ve been a long-time follower, and have read 100’s of books from this list – you are my mental escape at the end of the day as a busy parent and professional who needs to turn her brain off at night to sleep!
I’m a first-time author who wrote a book as a response to the pandemic.
More kids (and adults) today are struggling than ever – anxiety, depression, attention, learning and more. Parents are concerned and needing help and guidance. Back on Track: A Practical Guide to Help Kids of All Ages Thrive is being published by Mayo Clinic Press and will be out Sept 5th. It is hope and an action plan to help support development and brain health to influence mood, emotions, cognition and more.
While this is NOT the norm for your page, I suspect that so many of your followers are parents who lose sleep at night worrying about their kids and wondering what they can do to help.
I 100% agree!!
She posted on her Instagram page:
Today is the day! Many, many hours have gone into creating Back on Track, and I’m so glad to finally get it into the hands of parents who will find it valuable.
This is the book for every parent who has worried about their child and wants to create change. It provides an action plan for parents to help their child thrive at school, at home, and at play.
Thank you to all who have pre-ordered, sent a kind message, or supported this process in any way. I’m grateful for you!
Back on Track is available on Amazon and at Barnes & Noble.
So what’s it about?
Practical steps based on brain science and development to help kids thrive – post-pandemic and beyond.
Attention, mood, emotions, behaviors, organization, communication, social interactions, learning, and confidence all have one thing in common—the brain. Your child’s brain determines how they take in, process, and react to the world around them, influencing everything, from their thoughts and feelings to actions and interactions.
Brain development is an active process that has no true end point, as the brain continues to evolve and improve throughout life. Yet all too often parents and educators take a passive role in this process, wishing, hoping, and praying for growth and change.
Back on Track is the book for every parent who has worried about their child and wants to create change. It provides an action plan for parents to help their child thrive at school, at home, and at play—from a professional who develops and implements brain-based wellness programs for kids, adults, and athletes and is a mom herself.
This comprehensive, accessible guide will show you how to add purposeful activities to your daily life to positively impact development—from birth through the teenage years.
