At Outpost, we strive to provide parenting resources that will benefit our camp families year-round.
This spring, we have an exciting educational opportunity for you. Through our affiliation with the Western Association of Independent Camps (WAIC), we are co-sponsoring an interview with Tina Payne Bryson about her new book, The Yes Brain: How to Cultivate Courage, Curiosity, and Resilience in Your Child. Bryson co-wrote The Yes Brain, as well the best-selling books, The Whole-Brain Child and No-Drama Discipline, with Daniel Siegel.
Some of our Senior Directors got the chance to see her speak this fall and not only was she incredibly engaging and knowledgeable, but her approach to working with kids highly resonated with the goals and program design of Outpost. We are thrilled to give you the option to hear her speak and encourage you to tell us what you think!
About The Yes Brain:
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.
We’re excited to promote a “yes brain” approach at Outpost, and we hope you’ll join us at a special Facebook Live event for parents of our campers called “The Yes Brain at Camp.” The live video interview will be on May 4 at 4:30 pm PT. You can access the event at bit.ly/WAIC-Facebook.
You’ll learn how our camp staff incorporate this positive approach to working with our campers to bring out their best behavior, and you’ll learn tips you can use at home, too! We encourage you to pick up a copy of The Yes Brain (or download a copy on Audible)! If you miss the live event, don’t worry. We’ll also share the video with you on our blog.
