The Art of Compassionate Discipline
Current childrearing 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 the area of 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.
Raising Lions challenges us to re-examine our interactions and relationships with children, re-think the root causes of behaviaor problems and find new ways to support healthy, happy development.
