Every child has an off day when nothing seems to go right, but for some, angry outbursts, frustration, and resentment are the norm. When a child's anger threatens to jeopardize his school and social life and introduces an element of strain into the family dynamics that affects every member, it's time for a parent to ask: When is angry too angry?

Like many parents with children that are labeled as being a 'problem', my wife and I have run the gamut of solutions. After one of my son's grade school teachers decided that he had Attention Deficit Disorder, we tried to medicate the problem away. After a doctor assured us that his problems were caused by food allergies, we tried to diet the problem away. After a guidance counselor stated that his poor performance in school was caused by a learning difficulty, we tried to tutor the problem away. As our son went into middle school, the problems seemed to be getting worse, and our relationship with him was increasingly marked with shouting matches rather than conversations. I saw Dr. Murphy's book and the title seemed to be a three word definition for our son. After reading the book, it was as though the author had a window into our house. Not only did the book accurately portray our child's behavior, but it showed how we, in some circumstances, had worsened the situation by our actions and reactions. We look forward to using Dr. Murphy's suggestions in finally addressing the root cause of our son's 'Angry' behavior. I think that this book belongs in every parent's library, and it should be required reading for teachers, school administrators, and pediatricians.

I have worked with abused, neglected, foster and adoptive children and their families for over ten years. Dr. Murphy's book captures the essence of what many parents and caregivers deal with on a daily basis. This book provides caregivers with page after page of recommendations and support to address the needs of their individual child. While providing simple-to-understand, yet thought provoking recommendations, Dr. Murphy challenges the parent to find what works best for the child and family. I highly recommend this sensitive and insightful piece of work for anyone who interacts with children in their daily life.

This book discusses some profoundly angry children almost as a personality dissorder. I think it is an interesting way to look at it. Working in schools for 30 years i have encountered many of these angry children. Although this book is somewhat helpful to me to understand an oft angry child it is really more pointed to the parent of an angry child. I think it is a good book to give someone dealing with an angry child some perspective into his world.
