    Love and Anger: The Parental Dilemma

    I've read many parenting books but this one is definitely the most useful. The other ones had lots of theories but Samalin's gave me 10-20 useful tips that I have actually started using. Samalin includes dialogs (examples) that are helpful in day to day, stressful situations with my kids. Though I don't consider myself to be an angry person in general sometimes I "lose it" and handle situations in a less than desirable manner. This book has helped me a tremendous amount and I would highly recommend it!

    Love and Anger: The Parental Dilemma

    I believe this book is a must read for all parents. Nancy Samalin focuses on common triggers for anger towards our kids and provides numerous techniques for effectively dealing with that anger. One of the many things I found helpful about this book was that it allowed me to step back, think for a moment, and then respond rather that simply react to stressful, anger inducing situations. As a result, I¿ve found that I am yelling less and my son¿s outbursts have become much less frequent. Not only do I feel less guilty about my anger but now I know how to deal with it in a much more effective manner. Reacting rather than thinking was really hurting our relationship and I didn¿t know what to do about it before buying this book. I recommend it highly!

    Love and Anger: The Parental Dilemma

    I am a father of 3 wonderful children but our relationship has been somewhat rocky at times. Samalin¿s book has not only helped me deal with my anger and feel less guilty but it has also greatly improved my relationship with all three of my kids. Samalin¿s book gives tons of practical examples of how to speak to your children in an affirmative rather than negative manner, and get them to do what you want without causing resentment. I¿ve read this book twice and I plan to read it again so that I will continue to apply it¿s many useful concepts. Once you read this book you will definitely notice that you are more in control, calmer and can communicate with your children in a much more effective manner. This is by far the best book on parenting I have ever read and is an essential parenting resource.

    This book changed my life.

    I grew up with an authoritarian father with a terrible temper. Not surprisingly, when I had my own kids, I found myself letting the kids push and push me until finally I exploded in pure, unadulterated rage. When it was over, I felt terrible and my kids were so frightened they didn't even remember what they had done to provoke my anger. This book literally changed my life overnight. I rarely scream at my kids anymore, and yet they respond much more quickly and obediently when I law down the law. Think of those parents you admire who never raise their voices, but who really know how to communicate anger without losing control? Nancy Samalin's book will teach you how to do this. You'll get your point across, your kids will learn limits more quickly and effectively, and you'll feel better about yourself and your kids. A must read for all parents.

    Great resource for dealing with an often troubling emotion

    This book takes a frank look at anger in both children and parents. Nancy Samalin helps parents to feel less guilty about getting angry and she offers useful techniques to help both parents and children deal with this often troubling emotion. Parents will recognize themselves and their children in the familiar stories she includes. This is an important book that can be a continuing resouce throughout the parenting years. I highly recommend it.

    Sample?

    I can't even get a sample of the book. The sample contains first 10 pages which lists table of contents, publishing info and acknowlegments. Please, can I have a few pages of the book to read prior to purchase? Or I guess I have to go to the bn store.

    Teaching Parents and Kids How to Handle Anger

    What a revelation...not only is anger a normal part of parenting, but a useful one; our responses to it teach our children valuable lessons they will carry with them for a lifetime. For better or worse! Thank goodness for this book by Nancy Samalin. She helps parents realize that they need not feel guilty for feeling intense anger toward their children from time to time. Instead, she shows in specific ways how we can identify the source of our anger and diffuse it in ways that do no harm. In the process, we can model healthy expressions of anger for our children, who learn far more from our examples than our lecturing. Like most of the communication principles advocated by Samalin in her three invaluable books, the ones in this book can be of benefit in our interactions with adults as well as children.
