“There is no such thing as a bad kid.”  

Dr. Dan welcomes international parenting expert and guest Dr. Stuart Shanker (https://self-reg.ca/). This is an encouraging discussion about the concept of self-regulation, stress, and Dr. Shanker’s paradigm-shifting new book, SELF-REG: How to Help Your Child (and You) Break the Stress Cycle and Successfully Engage with Life https://www.amazon.com/Self-Reg-Child-Stress-Successfully-Engage/dp/1594206090. Dr. Shanker knows all children are good and reveals to Dr. Dan his revolutionary new understanding of stress and how it affects children’s emotions and behavior, hidden stressors, as well as practical advice for parents to help their kids engage calmly and successfully in learning and life with 5 steps.

Dr. Dan and Dr. Shanker discuss how Self-regulation is the nervous system’s way of managing stress and the fact that before parents can teach their children self-regulation they must master it themselves. The moving discussion highlights the fact that there are no bad kids and that when you see a child differently you see a different child.

He attended the University of Toronto, where he received his bachelor's and master's degrees. At the University of Oxford, he obtained his D.
