By: Newsfile

Costa Mesa, California--(Newsfile Corp. - March 7, 2024) - #1 New York Times bestselling author and neuropsychiatrist Dr. Daniel Amen and child psychologist Dr. Charles Fay have teamed up to reveal what's missing from most parenting books. It's the fact that you need to address both the brain and the mind of your child (and yourself) to raise good and strong humans effectively.

Raising Mentally Strong Kids: How to Combine the Power of Neuroscience with Love and Logic to Grow Confident, Kind, Responsible, and Resilient Children and Young Adults will be released on March 26, 2024, and is available for pre-sale now on Amazon and other popular retailers with an opportunity for pre-orders.

In a time when so many children and young adults seem to be struggling, parents are looking for help in bringing up mentally healthy kids who are equipped to thrive. Finally, evidence-based help is now available for overwhelmed parents who are trying their best but feel like they're falling short.

In this groundbreaking book where neuroscience meets love and logic, parents are given practical tools to help children of all ages go from behavioral problems like defiance, meltdowns, and power struggles to be:

  • Responsible, confident, kind, and resilient
  • Better prepared to make good decisions
  • More focused and motivated
  • Better able to have healthy relationships and more….

Dr. Amen and Dr. Fay's approach is designed to help parents raise great kids who are on their way to reaching their full potential, including their best possible mental health.

"In this book, I will provide you with a wealth of information to help you and your children develop strong brains," said Dr. Amen, co-author and double-board certified psychiatrist and founder of Amen Clinics and BrainMD. "It's been my life's passion, and it is an honor to share it with you."

Millions of educators, mental health professionals, and parents worldwide have benefited from his practical and down-to-earth solutions to the most common and frustrating behaviors displayed by youth of all ages.

Dr. Fay's interest in education and psychology was piqued as a child from years of exposure to some of our nation's most dynamic experts in these fields.

The internationally recognized Love and Logic approach was literally developed around Charles Fay as he grew. Now he jokes, "I think that's why I became a psychologist…just to figure out what they were doing to me as a kid. But…let me be clear…I absolutely adore my mom and dad as a result."
