Meet Tina Payne Bryson, PhD

I'm Dr. Tina Payne Bryson. I'm an adolescent and pediatric psychotherapist and a parenting consultant. I'm a co-author of the book, "The Whole-Brain Child," with Dan Siegel. And I do a lot of speaking and writing about parents and kids as well. You can learn more about me at my website, and read some of the articles and blogs that I write about parenting. But my most important work is parenting my three boys. In fact, one of my favorite things to do is spend the weekend at Little League games and hanging out with other families and other kids. And always eating a little bit too.
