Praise for Safe and Secure ...
“As educators and parents, we found Dr. Mark Brady’s new ground-breaking book to be a
fascinating and wonderfully accessible collection of essays on child development, neuroscience,
and the wider issues of promoting emotional health and well-being. Dr. Brady explores the crucial
decisions we can all make related to nurturing a child’s developing brain and body - often small
decisions that can have remarkably lasting effects on both the individual and society. Unlike many
parenting guides, this isn’t repackaged conventional wisdom. It’s a must-read for anyone
concerned with fostering a healthy basis of empathy, morality, social cognition, self-awareness,
and listening skills. We are deeply inspired by Mark’s work and suspect you will be too!”

“When my son was an infant, I often found myself wishing he had come with an instruction manual,
one that might tell me how to adequately meet the miracle of his birth and rapidly unfolding
development with similarly inspired parenting. With
Safe and Secure, Mark Brady has provided
just such a work. This book takes the wondrous complexity of social neuroscience research and
grounds it in everyday practices designed to nourish loving, attuned relationships that will last a
lifetime. It’s a must-read.”

“Through Mark’s passion and enthusiasm, and his heartfelt and playful connection to his subject
matter, you cannot miss his intention to inform parents, educators and anyone else who touches
the lives of children, that the care and feeding of a child’s brain is the top priority for the well-being
of our species and our planet. He inspires great curiosity in me, such that I take the time to sit and
read about our human connections to our biological computer – our brain.”

“Dr. Brady has an uncommon ability to help parents feel competent about their parenting. As a
result they raise children who actually end up
Safe and Secure. Mark’s  encyclopedic knowledge
of how our brains and hearts work to create healthy parent-child relationships is inspiring. He has
the extraordinary ability to distill confusing terms and concepts into layman’s language so people
everywhere can easily understand them, and more importantly, put them to effective use. Safe
and Secure is a book hospitals, midwives and birth centers would be well-advised to hand out to
every first-time mother.”

Girls, You Just Don’t Get It


“Mark Brady’s warm writing style touches on one of the most critical elements in developmental
psychology, never forgetting the potential adult in the child and the hidden child in the parent. He
weaves cutting-edge theories with down-to-earth advice that reveal how seemingly small choices
in raising children can make tremendous difference, fostering healing, creative independence,
and self-actualization."

“Mark Brady has worked passionately to sift through the growing body of neuroscience research
to provide parents with information that is both engaging and inspiring. As a parent I find his work
extremely useful in helping me understand my children and myself.  This book helps parents gain
basic neuroscience literacy while expanding compassionate self-acceptance in the demanding
dance of parenting.”
