How to Improve Your Relationship With Your Difficult Child: Live Discussion

Posted By:

Finding your child hard to control? Seeing aggressive behavior? Resenting their impulsivity? Wondering if you were just dealt a difficult child? At wit’s end? This talk is for you.

Joseph Newman, author of 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. In this session, he will provide specific, non-punitive ways for parents to help their kids, and to improve a parent-child relationship.

Part of The Mother Company’s expert series on Parenting in a Pandemic.

Joe Newman was one of the first children to be diagnosed with ADHD. Growing up with this label taught him that he was “broken,” and that he had a limited potential. Through experience and change, Joe shattered this label and re-built his identity into a joyfully whole person.

For nearly 30 years, Joe has worked with children of all ages who struggle to harness their potential, whether they are diagnosed with a disorder or just having difficulty with boundaries at home or in school. His work has been researched by UCSB and published in his 2010 book, Raising Lions.

Joe coaches parents, teachers and school administrators to raise and teach children to step into the future that they uniquely can build.
