Overview

Helping Your Angry Child, written by three leading anger researchers, is an interactive, self-help workbook written for you, the parent, with real-world solutions for helping your child deal with anger and rage. Based on over ten years of clinical study and experience, the authors learned that when a child exresses anger, most likely the parent takes it personally and gets caught in negative reactions.

This new book teaches essential skills that will put you safely back in your parental role, helping you and your child cope with anger in healthy ways. Included are many interactive worksheets that will help the entire family by practicing these new skills feel closer and more unified. You will learn how to:

  • Teach your child anger-management skills
  • Relate to others within the family when strong emotions arise
  • Understand, recognize, label, and deal with the anger a child expresses
  • Listen without reacting to a child’s anger, and
  • Always be prepared to be a good parent

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
