Raising Lions Behavior Consulting Programs


Knowledge and insight about why children do what they do is the first step toward change, but knowledge and insights alone are often difficult to put into action during difficult moments.  

This is why Joe teaches straightforward, concrete actions and language to use  to change the relationships bewtween adults and children.  Raising Lions Behavior Consulting offers hands-on coaching, scripts, and clear action plans for parents and teachers.
