Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“When parents can process their anger and talk respectfully about strong feelings, they set a powerful, positive example for their young children. This new workbook gives parents (and teachers) many useful anger-management exercises for relating to both their young children’s anger and frustration as well as techniques for helping their children learn how to handle angry feelings. Any parent whose child struggles with anger should get this book.”
–Matthew McKay, Ph.D., author, When Anger Hurts and When Anger Hurts Your Kids

“In this inviting text, based on sound principals of developmental psychology, and clinical experience, the authors have accomplished making the often-dreaded task of anger management in children easier, even playful. I highly recommend this practical guide to parents, teachers counselors, and their young charges.”
—Susanne M. Jensen, Ph.D., clinical psychologist, Baton Rouge, LA
