Raising Lions


That’s a new book out by specialist Joe Newman that focuses on dealing with some children who may be a bit more "difficult" (Ah, hello, we've been there!). The book lays out his compassionate, systems-based approach that builds on strengths, not weaknesses, and encourages children to be what he calls “lions”—strong-willed, confident, self-assured. The catch: to raise lions, Newman says, adults need to parent like lions.
