In their groundbreaking book, Dharma Parenting: Understand Your Child's Brilliant Brain for Greater Happiness, Health, Success and Fulfillment, renowned scientists Dr. Robert Wallace and Dr. Frederick Travis draw on contemporary scientific research and the time-tested knowledge of Ayurvedic typology to explain our children's natural inclinations (i.e. why one child learns quickly and forgets quickly while another learns slowly and forgets slowly; why one child is hyperactive and another slow moving; or why one falls asleep quickly but wakes in the night while another takes hours to fall asleep). Combining this with the latest understanding of how the brain is shaped by natural maturation, Wallace and Travis show parents how to better understand their child's natural inclinations and corresponding strengths and weaknesses.

Using a simple quiz to ascertain their children's unique brain/body type, readers will learn:

  • What kinds of foods best support each individual child's brain/body type
  • Which routines best suit each brain/body type
  • How to choose activities that bring each child greater enjoyment and well-being
  • How parents can determine their own brain/body type, and how it impacts their relationship with their kids
  • How parents should alter their parenting approach for each age group

Robert Keith Wallace is a pioneering researcher on the physiology of consciousness. His research has inspired hundreds of studies on the benefits of meditation and other mind-body techniques.

Frederick Travis is a world-renowned neuroscientist who has discovered brain wave patterns in children and young people that correlate with greater moral reasoning, happiness, emotional stability, and academic performance.
