Would any parent turn down groundbreaking scientific research that could help their child develop to their true potential? Wallace and Travis are researchers and neuroscientists who recommend parents use Ayurveda to help recognize and nurture their child’s unique attributes.
The book reviews the different Ayurveda brain/body types. It includes a website parents can access to determine their and their child’s type with recommendations to help them understand and connect with their child.
In the book they describe the six tools which form the acronym DHARMA: D for discover your child’s, and your own, brain/body type, H for heal yourself, A for attention and appreciation, R for routines to improve family dynamics, M for manage meltdowns and cultivate better behavior, and A for anticipate and adapt. Note that different age groups benefit from different methods while using these tools.
The authors provide practical advice and charts for easy reference so readers have the opportunity to raise a happy, balanced child.
