About The Book
A revolutionary guide for parents of kids that struggle with big emotions, power struggles, or challenging behaviors.
If your child is labeled strong willed, highly sensitive, spirited or explosive, neurodivergent (ADHD, Autism, Anxiety, Sensory Processing, etc.), dealing with trauma, or just tougher than other kids you’ve met, parenting expert Dayna Abraham, is here to help. You and your child are not broken. You are the parent that your child needs, and Calm the Chaos is the roadmap that can help you find your path forward.
This clearly organized, methodical approach is designed to help parents create a deeply connected family while removing the stress and overwhelm of parenting in a modern world.
There are five steps to calming the chaos—Getting to Safety, Restoring Energy, Finding Calm in the Moment, Getting Ahead of the Moment, and Building a Family Team.
Each step employs a framework that is easy to remember, even when emotions run high:
- You ground yourself,
- Connect with your kid,
- Understand the root of the struggle,
- Empower each other with a solution and plan that works for everyone involved.
Backed by science and tested by hundreds of thousands of families, Calm the Chaos helps parents guide children to self-acceptance, compassion, and resilience. Complete with in-the-trenches stories, scripts, prompts, and visuals, making it simple for parents to go from surviving to thriving.
