Publisher's Summary

Current child-rearing techniques seek to develop children who are confident, self-assured, and unafraid to speak their minds-lions instead of lambs. Although largely positive, this shift has brought with it some very serious problems in our children's behavior. Without going back to an authoritarian model, Joe Newman has developed new ways of helping children develop the ability to self-regulate without undermining their confidence, and individuality.

“One of the best books on child-rearing. Joe Newman describes a cultural shift that has reinforced anxiety and behavior disorders in children by negating parental authority. Even more important, he provides specific, non-punitive ways for parents to help their kids by taking back their authority. Filled with examples and experiences from the author’s own life as a child with A.D.H.D., the book is a treasure-trove of useful information.” (Barry Michels, psychotherapist and New York Times bestselling author of The Tools)

“This book is packed with useful information. It is an insightful and practical guide for managing children. I would recommend it to any parent.” (L. Alan Sroufe, Professor Emeritus Ph.D. University of Minnesota)

Raising Lions challenges us to re-examine our interactions and relationships with children, re-think the root causes of behavior problems, and find new ways to support healthy, happy development.

For over 20 years Joe Newman has worked with children, parents, teachers, and administrators to help them understand and improve child behavior.

Every parent should read this!

I am a pediatric occupational therapist, and the principles of this book have been incredibly valuable to my practice. Bottom line- it works. I’m so glad I read this before having kids of my own. Thanks Joe!

incredibly effective and easy to apply!

I've been reading so many books on parenting and discipline, etc, and just overwhelmed by it all and nothing was working right until I read this book.
I wish it was written 16 years ago!
It's been so effective on my 8-yr-old ADHD and ASD son, my 3-yr-old daughter, and tweaking it for my teen daughters.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

A phenomenal read

I struggled with my 5-year old and her sassy behavior. After reading this book I learned the skills I needed to parent properly. She is still a lion - but now, so am I.

what every parent needs to read

I wish I read this book 5 years ago just before my first son was born. The concepts introduced are so easy to understand yet seem so foreign. The fact it is read by the author gives meaning and weight to the concepts. Excellent for all new, and seasoned parents.

this book is very exceptional

I have a daughter that just turned a year old. I heard about this book through Bryan Callen on The Joe Rogan Experience. I am so glad that I listen to it, I even got the paper back to follow along and highlight notes! this is provided me with such an in-depth understanding on how to make sure that I have the healthiest relationship with my daughter as she grows. I appreciate all the knowledge shared throughout this book!
